Abstract:

The Vibration and Aeroelastic Facility of the Air Force Wright Aeronautical Laboratories is used for recording and analyzing dynamics data. New instrumentation systems have made possible a significant increase in the quantity of measurements which can be acquired to define the dynamics environment in various aircraft, missile, and ground support equipment. To reduce the large quantities of data to a usable form, processing techniques based upon the use of spectrum analyzers and minicomputers are employed. These techniques are described and methods are illustrated for presenting statistical quantities defining the spectral composition of dynamics environments.
