3-day course on mechanical shock that is highly recommended for all lead technicians and managers of environmental test laboratories.

About this event

This Mechanical Shock Testing & Data Analysis Short Course will provide a comprehensive treatment of mechanical shock test techniques and data analysis for shocks from 100g to 200,000g. Mechanical shock instrumentation from low frequency techniques for underwater explosions to high frequency techniques for ballistic shock will be reviewed in detail along with the techniques and data analyses to evaluate the instrumentation measuring these shocks. This course is highly recommended for all lead technicians and managers of environmental test laboratories.

Over 3 days of instruction, Dr. Vesta Bateman will lecture on topics including:

  • Introduction to Mechanical Shock 
  • Mechanical Shock Instrumentation and Measurement 
  • Certification of Shock Instrumentation devices 
  • Time and Frequency Domain Shock Specifications 
  • Shock Analysis using Acceleration 
  • Data Acquisition System Calibration/Use 
  • MATLAB Data Analysis 
  • Shock Testing Machines For Components and Full Scale Systems 
  • Navy Mechanical Shock Machines  **Updated for 901-DTL-E**
  • Pyroshock Testing and Simulation 
  • Accelerometer, MEMS, and Materials Evaluations 
  • Component Pyroshock Simulations 
  • Uncertainty Analysis 
  • Pseudo Velocity Shock Spectra (PVSS) topics 


Registration Fee includes lunch daily, a comprehensive set of course notes (printed and digital), a compilation of papers by the instructors, and a text book entitled Shock Data Analysis by Rudolph J. Scavuzzo and Henry C. Pusey.


A reduced-rate room block will be set aside for attendees. Instructions for booking will be included with your order confirmation email.
