Vibration isolation of inertial measurement unit

Çınarel, Dilara
Sensitive devices are affected by extreme vibration excitations during operation so require isolation from high levels of vibration excitations. When these excitation characteristics of the devices are well known, the vibration isolation can be achieved accurately. However, it is possible to have expected profile information of the excitations with respect to frequency. Therefore, it is practical and useful to implement this information in the design process for vibration isolation. In this thesis, passive vibration isolation technique is examined and a computer code is developed which would assist the isolator selection process. Several sample cases in six degree of freedom are designed for a sample excitation and for sample assumptions defined for an inertial measurement unit. Different optimization methods for design optimizations are initially compared and then different designs are arranged according to the optimization results using isolators from catalogues for these sample cases. In the next step, the probable designs are compared according to their isolator characteristics. Finally, one of these designs are selected for each case, taking into account both the probable location deviations and property deviations of isolators.


Chatter detection using vibrational and acoustic emissions in turning process
Süleyman, Büyükkoçak; Kılıç, Şener; Özer, Mehmet Bülent; Ünver, Hakkı Özgür (null; 2013-09-20)
Chatter vibration is a longstanding problem for machining industry. It lowers both surface finish quality and life of cutting tool. In this study, real time chatter vibration detection system is designed and tested experimentally. A traditional lathe, equipped with two accelerometers placed on cutting tool in two orthogonal coordinates and a microphone, is used for machining a steel rod in face turning operation. During cutting process analog data of accelerometers and microphone is acquired by data acquisi...
Vibration reduction of structures by using nonlinear tuned vibration absorbers
Doğan, Muhammed Emin; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
Tuned Vibration Absorbers (TVA) are commonly used in reducing undesirable vibrations of mechanical structures. However, TVAs work in a very limited frequency range and if the excitation frequency is outside of this range, they become ineffective. In order to solve this problem, researchers started to consider nonlinear TVAs for vibration attenuation. In this study, dynamic behavior of a Linear systems coupled with a nonlinear TVA is investigated. The system is subjected to sinusoidal base excitation. Parame...
Measurement of ground borne vibrations for foundation design and vibration isolation of a high-precision instrument
ÜLGEN, DENİZ; ERTUĞRUL, ÖZGÜR LÜTFİ; Özkan, M. Yener (2016-11-01)
This study focuses on the foundation design and vibration isolation of a high-precision instrument subjected to ground-borne vibrations. The allowable vibration level for the proper operation of the sensitive equipment was 50 mu g in a frequency range of 1-300 Hz. Prior to foundation design, first, an extensive field survey including geological and geophysical tests were performed in situ to obtain the static and dynamic physical properties of the soils. Next, vibration levels at various locations in the vi...
Functional Series TARMA Models for Non stationary Tool Vibration Signals Representation and Wear Etimation
Aghdam, Behrang Hosseini; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (null; 2016-01-25)
This article addresses the problem of tool wear estimation using vibration signals. Time dependent time series models are suitable for extraction of time varying dynamics embedded in the non-stationary signals. A version of non-stationary time series known as Functional Series Time dependent AutoRegressive Moving Average (FS-TARMA) is employed for estimation of tool vibration signals and identification of the dynamics of tool/holder system. The obtained models associated with different levels of tool wear a...
Vibration isolation system for space launch vehicles
Karaman, Burak; Özgen, Gökhan Osman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2018)
In the frame of this thesis, novel vibration isolation systems for spaces launch vehicles are designed and verified by vibration tests in laboratory environment. Payloads, satellites or spacecraft, are exposed high level of vibration loads during launch. These vibration loads are transmitted from launch vehicle to the payload and may have a detrimental effect on the payload. Vibration isolation systems can be used at the payload-launch vehicle interface in order to reduce vibration environment of a payload....
