Abstract: In Industry almost all the machinery are subjected to noise, shocks and vibrations when machines are working. These vibrations leads to more frequent repairs and replacements of machine parts also reduce their life span. Antivibration mount is used as a Vibration Control Solutions for machineries. This work is more focused on the importance of anti-vibration mount, which can be used for various mechanical system. This study includes the design of mounts for various functional requirements and fatigue life prediction methods. There are several approaches to predict the fatigue life of mount. Initially, different types of failures in anti-vibration mounts are discussed in detail. Analytical method, Finite Element Method and Experimental approach to predict the fatigue life are analyzed. The strain life approach is considered, incorporate with material properties of mount and another approaches were discussed that are harmonic response, crack nucleation and crack growth mechanics. It is conclude with, the strain life approach is convenient method to predict the fatigue life of antivibration mount, because it give highly non-linear effect to find the critical region of mount.
