The Effects of Different Accelerometer Adhesives for Vibration Measurement on Steel Structures

This application note explores how adhesives impact accelerometer-based vibration measurements in steel structures. Two-component epoxies are effective but slow and costly. Single-component adhesives are faster and cheaper but may distort data due to their elasticity. Tests revealed that single-component adhesives can cause phase shifts and signal attenuation, highlighting the need for careful adhesive selection to ensure accurate measurements.
