"…is a good foundational text for engineers concerned with component vibration testing as it might relate to failure analysis, qualification testing, reliability testing, and machinery diagnostics. The book is well written and makes the presented concepts easy to understand. I recommend it both as an introduction to laboratory testing techniques for the relative novice and as a reference for experienced practitioners in the field." (Noise Control Engineering, Jan-Feb 2009) --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
From the Publisher
Based on the author's 30 years of experience and eight years of research, this book provides an integrated overview of the important elements involved in conducting vibration tests in the field and laboratory. Describes electrical and mechanical models of the parameters that affect transducer performance to offer an understanding of an instrument's limitations and how users can influence their behavior. Thoroughly discusses the digital frequency analyzer's operation and the dynamic performance of electrodynamic vibration exciters with either current or voltage mode amplifiers. Explores the practical aspects of running such tests as step relaxation, impulse, sinusoidal and random using the vibration test elements. Includes a number of simple case studies and answers fundamental questions with regard to how field data is obtained, stored and converted to useful test specifications.
