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
typically includes both unclassified (unlimited and limited
distribution) and classified sessions. 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.
HI-TEST Laboratories is
responsible for all planning and operational aspects of the
symposium. This will be HI-TEST's 13th consecutive year of
running the annual Shock and Vibration Symposium.
