Abstract:

The ability to predict and simulate acceleration-time histories at the actual mounting locations of weapon system components will provide vital knowledge for protecting and hardening these components to meet present and changing mission requirements of naval ships and submarines. Mechanical impedancemobility techniques, long a tool of the experimenter, have now evolved to practical methods under engineering conditions. This report summarizes current activities in the measurement of structural dynamic functions, usable methods for predicting response to environmental threats, and a new method for environment-simulation testing.
