The purpose of this monograph is to present a critical review of those equivalence techniques which have been and are being used to define and simulate service vibration environments in the testing laboratory. A further objective of the monograph is to present a unified and current overview of the heretofore fragmented activities involved in the formulation of vibration equivalence methods. The term vibration equivalence shall be interpreted to be concerned with a the various techniques used to derive test levels, b the performance of tests intended to simulate the conditions of service vibration, and c the duplication of critical damage processes. The interpretation is extended to include those techniques which may be applied to derive substitute vibratory loads for use in product design and performance evaluation.
