Sine Vibration Testing

Sine Vibration is the periodic oscillation of a test item. In the Lab, we use a variety of sine vibration tests: (1) a swept sine test is used to find resonant frequencies, (2) a fixed frequency test (or dwell test) is used to test the endurance of a test item for a certain time period or number of cycles, and (3) a resonance search, track, and dwell test is used to fatigue a test item by tracking the resonance as its frequency changes during a dwell.

Random Vibration Testing

Random Vibration is noise whose instantaneous amplitude is not specified at any instant of time. It provides a realistic simulation of the operating or transport conditions that products are exposed to, because it puts energy into the test item over a band of frequencies. Therefore, resonant frequencies of the test item are excited randomly, and sometimes close together, which can cause interaction.

In the Lab, we use several types of random vibration tests: (1) a functional test is used to simulate operational conditions at normal levels, (2) an accelerated life test is used to simulate operational conditions at higher than normal levels, and (3) a transport simulation.
