Wayne Tustin at DfR Solutions in College Park, MD: April 5-7, 2010

Wayne Tustin will teach his popular short course "Random Vibration and Shock Testing, ESS, HALT & HASS" at DfR Solutions, College Park, MD. For complete details and reservations, please click here.

Course Description:
Discussion, supported by projected visuals and video clips. Commencing with a review of basic vibrations, sources and causes, we will explore vibration measurements, analysis and calibration. We’ll compare sinusoidal vs. random vibration testing systems, specifications, standards and procedures. We will discuss ESS, HALT and HASS. We’ll emphasize vibration and shock test fixture design, fabrication, experimental evaluation and usage. Also shock measurement, shock response spectrum (SRS) and shock testing. Review of modal testing. We emphasize topics you will use immediately.

Today and in the near future we protectively install commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment in our flight, land vehicles and shipboard locations where vibration and shock can be severe. We laboratory test the protected equipment (1) to assure twenty years equipment survival and possible combat, also (2) to meet commercial test standards, IEC documents, military standards such as STANAG or MIL-STD-810G, etc. Few if any engineering schools teach about such protection or such testing. Hence this specialized course. After this short course, you will be able to:

measure vibration and shock,
calibrate vibration and shock measurement systems,
convert field measured data into a test program,
interpret vibration and shock test requirements,
supervise vibration and shock tests,
specify and experimentally evaluate vibration and shock test fixtures,
perform ESS, HALT and HASS.

When you visit a lab or review a test program, you will have a good understanding of the requirements and execution of a dynamics test and so be able to ask meaningful questions and understand the lab’s responses.
