Using of Damper Supports (DS) is the most effective way to decrease vibration level and dynamical stresses in engine parts. A rather difficult problem of DS design can be separated into three main stages as the following:
- Denision to use a DS: DS locating, definition of desired stiffness and damping.
- DS design: choice of the DS type, calculation of its main dimensions, detailed design.
- DS manufacturing and testing, including engine tests.
Purpose of this Guide is to disclose the milestone points, DS layouts and design, to disclose current possibilities in DS design.
