PRINCIPLES AND TECHNIQUES OF SHOCK DATA ANALYSIS
MEASUREMENT ANALYSIS CORP LOS ANGELES CA
Pagination or Media Count:
The book is intended for those concerned with analyses of mechanical shock data. The central intent is to extract information useful for considering system response to the measured transient acting as an excitation. Although the book is not aimed at telling the reader what data analysis approach should be applied in specific instances, it does provide helpful information in this regard. Presented are mathematical bases for the commonly employed Fourier and shock spectrum methods, as well as current techniques for their implementation by analog and digital means. A discussion of analysis errors is also included. Other approaches presented briefly are statistical averaging over an ensemble of events arising from a random transient process, decomposition of a transient in terms of orthogonal polynomials or exponentials, and certain extensions of the fundamental shock spectrum concept. The material presented can be found scattered throughout the literature however, its collection and organization within this book should prove to be most helpful to novices and practioners alike.
