Abstract:

The results of an analysis of the vibration and shock environment in piloted aircraft are presented. The objectives of the study were to define such environment and to devise appropriate laboratory tests for certifying the suitability or electronic and accessory equipment for use in aircraft service. The analysis used in the study is based on the thesis that the vibration and shock as measured in aircraft are relatively unimportant, but that the response of equipment to such vibration and shock is of paramount importance. This follows from the fact that the stress experienced by structures of the equipment is directly related to the response of such structures to the applied vibration and shock.
