Shock and vibration measurement can be defined as "the art and science of measuring and understanding a structure's response to a dynamic environment." Shock and vibration testing goes beyond data acquisition alone; it is only effective when you understand what the data means for your application. Creative skill is required to properly gather and analyze shock and vibration data. This webinar will provide a practical overview of the key components necessary for shock and vibration measurement, including sensor selection, data acquisition system selection, equipment setup guidelines. Attendees will gain a better understanding of shock and vibration fundamentals, and discover the analysis software options best suited to their needs.
- Understand why you should care about shock and vibration measurement
- Discover sensor technologies and suppliers available to you
- Learn how to select a data acquisition system that meets your needs
- Discover best practices for sensor set-up
- Understand the fundamentals of shock and vibration analysis
- Review analysis software options
Steve Hanly, a senior mechanical engineer at Mide Technology, leads the design, development, and production of shock and vibration data loggers "designed for engineers." Hanly led the U.S. Navy program to develop a shock and vibration analysis system (hardware and software) to isolate and identify aircraft vibration characteristics quickly and accurately. The product line was commercialized in 2014 and continues to grow annually.
