Abstract : The structural design requirements of shock and vibration resistant shipboard electronic equipment are stiffness and lightness, which imply high structural natural frequencies. These two fundamental design characteristics are advanced principally on the basis of practical solutions of problems involved in evaluations of electronic equipment at NRL, with respect to their ability to withstand shock and vibration phenomena. Compliance with these practical guides will eliminate most of the avoidable difficulties that repeatedly occur in evaluation procedures, and will contribute to the development of reliable equipment.
