Calculation Reference
Harris' Shock and Vibration Handbook

Harris's book on shock and vibration is a well-known reference work in the field of mechanical engineering and structural dynamics, titled 'Harris' Shock and Vibration Handbook'. The book was first published in 1959 and has been updated through multiple editions. The latest edition, the sixth edition, is edited by Allan G. Piersol and Thomas L. Paez. This comprehensive handbook provides a wealth of information on shock and vibration theory, measurement, testing, and control.

The book covers a wide range of topics related to shock and vibration, including:

  1. Basic theory and concepts of shock and vibration
  2. Measurement and analysis techniques for shock and vibration data
  3. Vibration testing procedures and equipment
  4. Shock and vibration standards and criteria
  5. Design and analysis methods for shock and vibration isolation
  6. Vibration control and damping techniques
  7. Structural dynamics and response to shock and vibration
  8. Applications of shock and vibration analysis in various industries, such as aerospace, automotive, and electronics

Harris' Shock and Vibration Handbook is a valuable resource for engineers, researchers, and students working in the fields of mechanical engineering, structural dynamics, and applied mechanics, as well as professionals involved in the design, testing, and analysis of structures and components subjected to shock and vibration.

Thanks John, I missed the Te/mm3 I had not seen that before

I updated the calculation to remove the external function

Hi Bob actually the units are mm and tonnes so my density is tonnes/mm^3. Also notice that acceleration due to gravity is mm/s^2. So I think the calculation is fine.The choice of units might seem a little odd but I often work in mm when modelling using finite element software. The handcalc is a sense check on my FE model results.

Could you please check your steel Your Density of material. 7860 kg/ have entered 0.000000000786 kg/mm31 kilogram / cubic meter = 1.0 × 10-9 kilograms / cubic millimeter So your imput for steel should be 7860 * 10-9.0.00000786.If I have missed anything then sorry.
