Piecewise linear vibration isolators under force excitation are analyzed. Isolators with symmetric restoring forces are considered. The method of numerical simulation is used to obtain the response and force transmissibility. The effects of stiffness ratio and piecewise gap on force transmissibility are reported. The effects of gap on the maximum acceleration of the mass are also discussed here.
