Is this a mechanical system of vibration reduction?

Is this a mechanical system of vibration reduction?

Is this a mechanical system of vibration reduction?

(OP)
I found here Coupled oscillators, the last one on this page, a system named by the author "Vehicle Suspension System". But I am not sure this modelizes a suspension for a vehicle.

I am interested to find and describe appropiate physical phenomena modelized by mechanical systems of this type and any other bibliographical references would be of help. Is it somehow related to a vibration reduction system in civil engineering?

RE: Is this a mechanical system of vibration reduction?

Why do you think otherwise? A passive spring system acts as a low pass filter, and therefore, reduces vibrations at frequencies above the resonant frequency

Ok, so you think it can modelize a vehicle suspension?

RE: Is this a mechanical system of vibration reduction?

(OP)
I have studied the dynamics of this system and I am interested to describe physical phenomena which could be modelized by it.

RE: Is this a mechanical system of vibration reduction?

(OP)
I'm confused about that horizontal wall at the top. If it is fixed and we discuss about a suspension of a vehicle, what could the horizontal wall actually represent? In this case, can the block m_1 be considered as the seat and m_2 as the wheel?

RE: Is this a mechanical system of vibration reduction?

I work with suspensions every day at work. it is not at all clear to me what is being modelled. If m1 is the unsprung mass and m2 is the sprung mass then k2 and d2 are 0.

Cheers

Cris1,

Your figure makes no sense to me as an automobile suspension. Could it be an example of the dynamic damping they use on some tall buildings?
