Shock Testing and SRS
iest, tri

A brief overview will examine types of shocks, including classical waveform, transient, pyrotechnic, SRS, and seismic. The problems of measuring and analyzing shocks will be explored, and some helpful tips will be offered. The course will expand into specific shock applications, including MIL-S-901 Underwater Explosion, ballistic impact, and repetitive events.
