Noran Engineering will conduct two tutorials and present a paper at the SAVIAC 77th Shock and Vibration Symposium, a leading forum for the structural dynamics and vibration community. Topics for the tutorials are: Theoretical and Best practices for Use of the Dynamic Design Analysis Method (DDAM) and Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for Shock and Vibration. The paper,
“A New Dedicated Shock Mount Element in NEi Nastran” reviews the theoretical background and provides a practical implementation in Finite Element models for transient nonlinear shock analysis.
77th Shock & Vibration Symposium
The annual Shock and Vibration Symposium is the leading forum for the structural dynamics and vibration community to present and discuss new developments and on-going research. The Symposium was established in 1947 and includes both classified and unclassified sessions. The classified sessions allow critical technology and classified (up to secret level) research to be presented in closed forums of cleared US Government and government-contractor researchers. Topics covered at the symposium include shock-ship testing, water shock, weapons effects (air blast, ground shock, cratering, penetration) shock physics, earthquake engineering, structural dynamics, and shock and vibration instrumentation and experiment techniques. Over 200 technical papers are typically presented. Panel discussions address topics such as new software developments or accelerometer isolation problems. Tutorials provide up-to-date technology overviews by leading specialists.
The 77th Shock & Vibration Symposium will be held from October 29 – November 3, 2006 at the Hyatt Regency Monterey in Monterey, CA. The featured government agencies are the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Division Keyport and Idaho National Lab.
