The purpose of this Reference Document (RD), IEST-RD-DTE046, is to define, clarify, and disseminate terminology appropriate for digital analysis of dynamic data as used in environmental testing. This RD is intended to assist those involved in recording, analyzing, displaying, or interpreting data relating to the dynamic properties of mechanical systems. Such data may include strain, vibration, sound pressure variations, and system electrical characteristics.
