    High-precision machines typically suffer from small but annoying vibrations. As the most appropriate solution to a particular vibration problem is not always obvious, it may be convenient to cast the problem in a more general framework. This framework may then be used for frequency response analysis, which, together with close examination of the disturbance sources, leads to a solution in general structural terms, like ‘vibration isolation’, ‘stiffness enhancement’ or ‘damping augmentation’. In case it is not possible or unpractical to control the vibration passively, a solution based on active structural elements may be considered.
