Abstract:

The intent of this Volume is to provide an overview to the Mechanical Engineer on the approach he will use in designing dynamic structural integrity into the equipment package under consideration. The elements of this general discussion include An introduction to the subject of structural dynamics, the characteristics of a shock or vibration excited system, and a summary of the design choices available to the designer a discussion of the Army transport methods employed in the field, how they relate to the Army equipment class categories, how the equipment class is used to define Quality Assurance tests, and ultimately the input loading criteria for the equipment system a design approach to structural reliability which is supported by the Design Guide, including some ground rules for tailoring natural frequency and damping to optimize the inherent dynamic resistance of the equipment package and a roadmap through the Design Guide, and a qualitative overview of the design relevant information contained in Volume III and the application and limitations of the analytical procedures outlined in Volume II.
