Abstract : This report is based for the most part on a one year survey, funded by the Shock and Vibration Information Center, of decision making in the specialties of isolation and packaging. For clarification, isolation is an attempt to protect equipment against mechanical vibration and shock during use or while it is installed for use. Packaging deals with protection during shipment. The survey was carried out by a series of person-to-person interviews. It was not confined to shock and vibration engineers, but included others who were in a position to influence the decisions. Contents: Introduction to the Findings are Recommendations; Findings on Packaging for Shipment; Findings on Isolation; Overall Evaluations and Recommendations for Isolation and Packaging; Shock and Vibration Engineering, Generally.
