Abstract. It is important to possess information about static characteristics of pipe fastening elements in order to achieve good vibro-isolation parameters. Static characteristics of the same fastening element may change with regard to applied clamping force, rubber relaxation phenomenon or other reasons. Measurement system for determination of static characteristics of pipe fastening elements was developed and multiple measurements were performed. Results confirm relevance of such experiments

Keywords: pipe vibrations, static measurement, fastening element.
