The need for vibration and shock control is increasing while lightweight structures are coming more common and replacing conventional massive machinery constructions. For past 15 years novel methods to protect machinery, equipment, personnel and structures have been studied in Technical Research Center of Finland (VTT). In several different research projects many new innovative methods to improve dynamical behaviour of structures have been developed and tested. Some of the tested methods have been commercialized. The goal of the new methods have always been keeping the solutions as simple, reliable and affordable as possible. This paper presents new methods to improve dynamical behaviour of structures including mass dampers, adjustable vibration isolator and nonlinear shock isolator. The tests have been conducted in laboratory and with real life applications including vibration and shock phenomena.
