Vibration protection for the Soyuz-5 launch vehicle has been successfully tested in Russia

New vibration protection can withstand extreme loads that occur during startup

spacecraft and launch into orbit, writes the press service of Samara University named after S. P. Korolev.

To reduce vibration and shock loads inOn the Soyuz-5 launch vehicle, the university has manufactured more than 300 vibration isolators. During the tests, different types of loads were created: scientists simulated real effects that occur during the launch and launch of the rocket into orbit, as well as during the transportation of the rocket to the cosmodrome. The researchers have successfully validated the design specifications.

The design of new vibration isolators usesspecial material MR - a metal analogue of rubber. It was developed by specialists from the ONIL-1 laboratory of the Samara University. As the press service of the university notes, the development on their basis is significantly superior in reliability to analogues known in Russia and abroad.
