Dynamic analysis and parameter identification of a single mass elastomeric isolation system represented by a Maxwell-Voigt model is examined. Influences that the stiffness and damping values of the Maxwell element have on natural frequency, damping ratio, and frequency response are uncovered and three unique categories of Maxwell-type elements are defined. It is also shown that Voigt and Maxwell-Voigt models with equivalent natural frequencies and damping ratios can have considerably different frequency response spectra. Lastly, a parameter identification method is developed for identifying Maxwell-Voigt models from frequency response spectra. The method is based on constant natural frequency and damping ratio curves generated from modal analysis of potential Maxwell-Voigt models.
