Shock Response Spectrum - SRS

Mechanical shock pulses are often analyzed in terms of the shock response spectrum. The shock response spectrum assumes that the shock pulse is applied as a base input to an array of independent single-degree-of-freedom systems.

Main Features

  • EASY SETUP: the sensors and the system setup is trivial
  • SELECTABLE FREQUENCY SPAN: freely definable calculation range for the frequency spectrum
  • DAMPING/QUALITY FACTOR: selection of damping ratio or quality factor can be easily updated also in offline mode
  • ADVANCED MATH: all relevant composite/maximax, primary, residual are calculated; results in frequency domain spectrum can be shown as acceleration, velocity or displacement
  • DATA EXPORT: as with any other math, data can be exported in virtually any data format used for NVH analysis

SRS Model

The shock response spectrum is a calculated function based on the acceleration time history.

It applies an acceleration time history as an excitation to an array of single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF) systems. Each system is assumed to have no mass-loading effect on the base input.

Calculated Parameters

  • Velocity DC filter - removes the DC component of the calculated time signal
  • Remove DC offset - removes the DC component of the input time signal
  • Noise floor - calculate the noise floor of the input time signal
  • Frequency division (octave) - removes the DC component of the calculated time signal
  • Damping/quality factor - different damping factors produce different SRSs for the same shock waveform. Zero damping will produce a maximum response and very high damping produces a horizontal line

Output Channels

All the output channels are calculated for acceleration, velocity, and displacement.

  • Composite/maximax - composite shock response for the absolute maxima (absolute max, max, min)
  • Primary - forced response, computation during the shock (absolute max, max, min)
  • Residual - free vibration, computation after the shock (absolute max, max, min)
