In this work, the effect of nonlinear damping in presence of geometric nonlinearities and magnetic stiffness nonlinearities in vibration isolation system is investigated. The dynamic behavior of the isolation system design is modeled. Harmonic Balance Method (HBM) is used to investigate the dynamic behavior of the vibration isolation system in response to sinusoidal input waveform. Results obtained using the HBM are compared to the results from numerical simulation attained using Runge-kutta method. Results show that introducing nonlinear viscous damping into the vibration isolation system suppresses frequency jump phenomena observed in Duffing-type vibration isolation systems. Additionally, results show that nonlinear damping can suppress transmissibility around resonant peak. For frequencies lower than resonant frequency the effect of nonlinear damping is minimum compared to a linear isolation system. Beyond resonant frequency higher nonlinear damping may slightly alter transmissibility of the isolation system.
