EAR Grommets,
B434/R444, B435/R445



This program
performs a curvefit on an acceleration spectral function resulting
from an applied force.
The main purpose is to determine the damping ratio.
The spectral function may be:
1. acceleration PSD
2. acceleration Fourier magnitude
3. transfer function magnitude (accel/force)



Calculate
relative displacement from absolute acceleration and vice versa.



Calculate
isolator static deflection or quasistatic deflection due to rigidbody
acceleration.
