Event Date/Time: May 07, 2009
This tutorial builds on the basic shock test courses offered by IEST. A brief review will cover types of shocks, including classical waveform, transient, pyrotechnic, and seismic. The problems of measuring and analyzing shocks will be examined and some helpful tips will be offered. The course will expand into specific shock applications, including MIL-S-901 underwater explosion, ballistic impact, and repetitive events. Additional topics include shock LCEP development and multi-axis shock testing. Various current forms of shock measuring devices and sensors will be reviewed along with analytical approaches, including the shock response spectrum, psuedo-velocity, and filter theory. This course is designed for those who have taken basic shock courses recently and for the more experienced engineer. Significant student interaction will be expected.
