Abstract:

The report is primarily intended for designers or analysts with limited backgrounds in structural dynamics or shock isolation principles. It presents simplified procedures for accomplishing feasibility studies or preliminary designs of shock isolation systems for ballistic missile defense systems. The various sections of the guide include methods for predicting inputs to shock isolation systems, basic techniques for analysis of the systems, criteria related to shock sensitivity of personnel and equipment, methods for sizing of various types of isolation devices and guidance regarding the more common arrangements of suspension systems. Although the objective of the guide is the presentation of simplified procedures, much of the information contained herein is equally applicable to a more detailed analysis of shock isolation systems.
