Question:

A shock mount constructed as shown in the figure is used to support a delicate instrument. The mount consists of an outer steel tube with inside diameter b, a central steel bar of diameter d that supports the load P, and a hollow rubber cylinder (height h) bonded to the tube and bar.
(a) Obtain a formula for the shear Ï„ in the rubber at a radial distance r from the center of the shock mount.
(b) Obtain a formula for the downward displacement δ of the central bar due to the load P, assuming that G is the shear modulus of elasticity of the rubber and that the steel tube and bar are rigid.
