1 December 1991 Analysis of elastomer lens mountings
Author Affiliations +
The equation for determining the decentering of lenses mounted in a circumferential flexible elastomer is derived. A closed form analytical solution was derived for a circular lens mounted in an elastomer to describe this deflection. The theoretical expression was used to verify finite element models which then may be used for more complex mounts. Proper modeling such as element type and aspect ratios are addressed as well as applications of the method for various mounting applications.
