Description


Presents mechanical shock from a structural dynamics perspective

Adopts a flexible structure supporting use as a reference for practicing engineers as well as a textbook for students of mechanical shock

Sheds light on less common and less well-understood spectra techniques, energy spectra methods, and non-spectral methods

Maximizes reader understanding of multi-degree-of-freedom shock spectra and multi-degree-of-freedom testing

Facilitates easy implementation computational analysis with algorithms and pseudo-code

Includes the history of mechanical shock analysis and testing up to the present

About the Author


Dr. Vit Babuska is an Aerospace Engineer and Principal Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he has worked since 2005. His current work addresses shock environments and structural mechanics model validation for shock loadings. Dr. Babuska's experience spans environmental test including vibration and shock testing and requirements specification, structural dynamics, system identification and control of spacecraft systems, and signal processing. He has worked on various spaceflight programs and spacecraft R&D projects during his career. He earned his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering in 1993 from The University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Carl Sisemore is a Mechanical Engineer and Principal Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he has worked since 2014. His current work focuses on shock and vibration test specification development and analysis of shock and vibration test data. In addition, he has co-lead the shock margin assessment research project on Energy Spectra and mechanical shock. He earned his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Tennessee Technological University in 2001
