Antivibration mounts with inertial hydraulic converter are widely used to protect a variety of technical systems from shock and vibration. As it follows from existing literature, models of such a mounts on the basis of mechanical and mechanical-electrical analogies instead of real hydro-mechanical system are usually used to study their dynamic properties and design. These models are not able to describe fluid dynamics in hydraulic mount, and are not suitable to study rapidly changing processes, which is especially required for effective application of the mounts at vibro-shock loading. In this work, a model of inertial hydraulic converter, which is a system of two hydraulic cylinders of unilateral operating principle, connected by a rigid hydraulic tube, is described. Dynamics of fluid in hydraulic converter is described by the Navier-Stokes equations for a compressible fluid and the equation of state of the fluid in assumption of its isentropic motion. The results of numerical simulation of antivibration mount dynamics at shock loading by using finite element package ANSYS/LS-DYNA are presented. It is found out that increasing the length of the tube and reducing the tube diameter lead to an increase in the transmitted dynamic force.
