This Recommended Practice (RP), IEST-RP-DTE042, will focus on establishing a standard for the storage of large binary files used mainly in vibration and acoustic testing. New standards will enhance future retrieval and promote the growth of interagency databases.

The first edition of Vibration/Shock Data Storage is under development by Working Group 042 of the IEST Design, Test, and Evaluation Division (WG-DTE042).
