A vibration isolation engine mount system and method for ducted fan aircraft, such as ducted fan vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft, includes an engine for driving the ducted fan. The system includes an engine support structure for supporting the engine within the ducted fan. A rotor of the ducted fan is coupled to an engine shaft of the engine via a rotor hub. The system includes a plurality of vibration isolators configured to mount the engine to the engine support structure. Each of the plurality of vibration isolators is substantially conce...
What is claimed is: 1. A method for isolating vibration in a ducted fan having an engine for driving the ducted fan, comprising the steps of:a.) orienting a plurality of elastomeric vibration isolators within a fan duct, each vibration isolator being disposed substantially concentrically along a surface of a sphere, wherein a center of the sphere is located at a center of a rotor hub configured to couple a rotor of the ducted fan to an engine shaft of the engine; andb.) attaching the engine to the plurality of vibration isolators, mounting the plurality ...
