Shock Isolation Theory

The shock absorbing characteristics of natural rubber elastomers are partly due to the energy dissipating properties but also due to the damping properties which applies to either a single (shock) force acting on a mass or cyclical force (vibration) acting on a system.  In both cases, isolation requires resistance, as represented by the spring, and damping as represented by the dashpot in this diagram.

For Wire Rope, or Cable Isolators, the graph below provides approximate correlation between input shock (or drop height) and output shock and deflection
