Abstract
The current increasing demand to accurately reproduce the load environment to which certain specimens from automotive, aerospace or civil engineering industries will be subjected during their service life, has led to the design of more and more sophisticated testing systems, able to exert dynamic loads with a wide frequency content. In order to avoid the transmission of the mentioned loads to testing system environment, special foundations, independent from the rest of the building, and sprung on vibration isolation systems must be designed. Typically, these foundations have been oversized using traditional methods. In this work, simple models to simulate motion of seismic mass and interaction with soil, from loads acting on it, are presented with the aim to develop a simple tool for the efficient sizing of this type of foundations. Results obtained are compared with Finite Element Method studies to validate simple models. As well, a method to predict vibration transmission to the environment is assessed.
