Shock response spectrum analysis

By calculating the shock response spectrum (SRS) it can be determined how shocks affect a structure.

A single transient shock event such as pyroshock or a structural impact can damage components in a structural system. Similarly, earthquakes can cause catastrophic failures in bridges and buildings. And with any motion input into a system, the response can be amplified by structural resonances, increasing the damage. By calculating the shock response spectrum (SRS) it can be determined how shocks affect a structure.

BK Connect Shock Response Spectrum Analysis software supports all five SRS models described in the ISO 18431-4:2007 standard. Combined with the nine ordinary criteria for amplitude calculations (shock instances), up to 45 response types can be calculated to match your requirements.

Special shock accelerometers for high-level and high-frequency measurements are part of our complete measurement and analysis chain.
