    Abstract:
    Post-buckled struts were used as spring components in a vibration isolation system. Vibration isolation is concerned with the minimization of the force or motion transmitted to a device from a source of vibration. The approach was shown to have promise in isolating very sensitive systems subject to very high frequency excitation.
