Investigating the transverse motion of a pneumatic shock exciter using two different anvil mounting configurations

Christiaan Smith Veldman


This paper describes novel design changes to the accelerometer mounting support of a commercial pneumatic shock exciter, with the aim of reducing the transverse motion the accelerometer is subjected to during shock excitation. The author describes the mounting support supplied by the manufacturer, the design changes made and the measurement data to compare the transfer motions recorded using two different mounting designs.
