Models of vibration isolators are very commonly used for the design and analysis of isolation systems. Accurate isolator modeling is critical for a successful prediction of the dynamic characteristics of isolated systems. Isolators exhibit a complex behavior that depends on multiple parameters such as frequency, displacement amplitude, temperature and loading conditions. Therefore, it is important to choose a model that is accurate while adequately representing the relationships with relevant parameters. Recent literature has indicated some inherent advantages of fractional derivatives that can be exploited in the modeling of elastomeric isolators. Furthermore, time delay of damping is also seen to provide a realistic representation of damping. This paper examines the Maxwell-Voigt model with fractional damping and a time delay. This model is compared with the conventional Maxwell-Voigt model (without time delay or fractional damping) and the Voigt model in order to comprehend the influence of fractional damping and time delay on dynamic characteristics. Multiple simulations are performed after identifying model parameters from the data collected for a passive elastomeric isolator. The analysis results are compared and it is observed that the Voigt model is highly sensitive to fractional damping as well as time delay.
