Formerly the optimization of the passive vibration isolator is mainly founded on the nonlinear programming algorithms. The methods are iterative in nature and time-consuming. In this paper a frequency domain suboptimal method is developed for the optimization of the passive vibration isolators. The method is based on the linear optimal control results and has advantages of high efficiency in computation and high reliability of results. It is especially applicable to the microcomputer environment.
