This course is a primer on accelerometers commonly used in sound and vibration applications. The operating principles of piezoelectric, MEMS, piezoresistive, capacitive, and replica rotational accelerometers are explained. Lasers and acoustic emission sensors are also covered. The important specifications are detailed. Finally, mounting, handling, and trouble shooting are addressed.

Course Description.pdfCourse Description.pdf

This seminar focuses on the practical implementation of experimental modal analysis testing. This is accomplished through understanding basic application of theory and measurement techniques as well as data reduction to obtain modal characteristics. Concepts of theoretical background, digital signal processing, excitation techniques and extraction of modal parameters from measured frequency response functions is the goal of this seminar.
