IRON MIKE'S TOUR
Because of the extreme high velocity of many shock transients, and the high performance of our more sophisticated products, Taylor Devices has developed our own software code, called TSIS (Taylor Shock Isolation Simulation). TSIS can easily handle the most violent of inputs at an extremely high level of resolution. Plus, TSIS can fully model isolation devices with non-linear spring and damping elements.
TAYLOR PULSE DATABASE
Over the last 40+ years, we have searched out and compiled an extensive shock database. This data base includes virtually every significant shock event of the last 100 years.
Our software has been fully validated by our customers on full scale tests and by in-field experiences, using shock isolation components built to operational parameters defined by TSIS. These tests and experiences include wind storms, hurricanes, surface and underwater explosions, vehicle crashes, and earthquakes.
In our first simulation, instead of a Taylor Devices' shock isolator, we'll use a standard rubber shipping container mount, 20 Hz. frequency, 30 g's capacity, 10% damping.
Pre-load (static centering force) = 2,000 lbs.
Endload (static full stroke force) = 3,800 lbs.
Available Stroke = ±1.5 in.
Damping = 650 V exp.6 lb x sec/in
As you've just seen, shock isolation with Taylor Isolators is the best solution to these . . . . and many other problems. Plus, we've seen that TSIS provides prompt and accurate results.
