For vibration and shock isolation investigations the conventional engineering representation of an elastomer under shear is a mechanical model with a spring and a dashpot in parallel. To represent more adequately the dynamic behavior of an elastomer, more complex model configurations are required. The technique to determine and assign magnitudes of a particular model configuration is presented. With the aid of an electronic analog computer, the frequency response characteristics of a particular elastomer are verified and the shock response characteristics are then predicted. The results obtained by this technique indicate an excellent correlation of behavior between the assumed model representation and the elastomer.
