Abstract:

Studies have been made of the three methods for measuring the mounted resonant frequency of shock accelerometers and consideration has been given to the problem of analysing and interpreting the results obtained. The effects of mounting the accelerometers are discussed and both practical and theoretical results are given. Recommendations as to further investigations in this area are made and conclusions are drawn with respect to the applicability of these methods to accelerometers having resonant frequencies in the range from 50kHz to 250kHz.
