Fundamentals of Random Vibration and Shock Testing Training

January 5, 2021 – January 7, 2021 all-day

  • We’ll commence by reviewing basic vibrations, sources and causes.
  • Then we’ll explore vibration measurements, analysis and calibration. Our discussion is supported by projected visuals and video clips. We’ll compare sinusoidal vs. random vibration with emphasis on testing systems, specifications, standards and procedures.
  • We’ll discuss ESS, HALT and HASS.
  • We’ll emphasize vibration and shock test fixture design, fabrication, experimental evaluation and usage.
  • Also shock measurement, shock response spectrum (SRS) and classical shock testing.
  • We’ll review modal testing.
  • Throughout, we emphasize topics you will use immediately.
  • We will have a virtual visit to the laboratory, where we will view and hear sine and random vibration on shakers. We will perform a resonance demonstration, using first sine and then random vibration. We will demonstrate shock testing, using both a shaker and a shock test machine.
  • Many participants protectively install commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment in flight, land vehicles and shipboard locations subject to severe vibration and shock.
  • Many participants laboratory test that protected equipment (1) to assure maximum equipment survival and possible combat, also (2) to meet commercial test standards, IEC documents, DO-160, military standards such as STANAG, MIL-STD-810, etc. Few if any engineering schools teach about such protection or such testing. Thus we offer this specialized course.
