The research develops designs and predictive models of thermoplastic matrix devices used to enable isolation for rafted machinery on marine systems. The issue is that in high sea states such isolation devices are subject to large out-of-plane as well as normal forces and these impinge large displacements and torque loads on such mounts. To design a damping augmentation treatment requires that the treatment itself be immune to such large deviations from normal load conditions and be survivable in harsh environmental conditions. The approach we have taken is to refine a successful approach using polymer constrained layer damping in a new design that accommodates such loading conditions.
