The course includes
presentations as well as hands-on software training.
1. Each student must
bring a notebook PC
2. Each student will
programs which perform the following calculations: power spectral
density (PSD), Fast Fourier Transforms (FFT), shock response spectrum
(SRS), and digital filtering.
3. Students will
receive time history data
samples so that they can practice using the software programs.
4. Students are also welcome to bring their own data samples.
and Managers who
must analyze or interpret shock and vibration data or specifications
will benefit from this course.
A degree in engineering or technology is helpful but is not required.
The course is open to
