In this paper, the force transfer mechanism of three mechanical elements “inerter, spring and damper” is analyzed based on the “force-current” analogy theory. The vibration isolation performance of the two types of simple three-element vehicle suspensions S1 (inerter is in parallel with damper) and S2 (inerter is in series with damper) are studied. The dual- -mass system model of the suspensions is built by means of using the mechanical impedance method. The influence of parameters variation on vibration transfer characteristics is also investigated.
