Abstract:

Most vibration encountered in the various transportation vehicles such as aircraft, guided missiles, trucks, etc. is a stochastic function and bears no resemblance to a sine wave. Therefore, to conduct a realistic vibration test for the acceptance of a component, a multi-frequency forcing function should be used to drive the shaker. However, for design modification purposes a sine wave vibration test is more useful. This paper provides the engineer with a guide towards proper vibration analysis and a method of using the results of this analysis to specify an adequate vibration test. Author
