Principles & Techniques of Shock Data Analysis, 2nd Ed.
by R.J. Scavuzzo and H.C. Pusey

Price: $50

ISBN No. 0-9646940-3-4

This monograph is a modification of the first edition of Principles and Techniques of Shock Data Analysis, authored by Ronald D. Kelly and George Richman, and originally published in 1969 by he Shock and Vibration Information Center (SVIC). There have been many changes in shock and vibration signal processing technology since the late 1960's: finite element software has been developed, the personal computer was introduced, modal testing developed, and analog to digital conversion made simple. PC software such as MATLAB® that containes signal processing algorithms and spreadsheets used in data collection and processing has revolutionized the manner in which shock data is analyzed and interpreted. The basic principles are the same but with the power of computation, available software and new hardware, the need for detailed mathematical approaches emphasized in the first edition are no longer required in engineering practice. Only the meaning  and physical significance of each approach to data analysis must be understood.


Naval Shock Analysis & Design
by R.J. Scavuzzo and H.C. Pusey

Price: $70

ISBN No. 0-9646940-4-2

The objective if this monograph is to present the analytical methods and experimental tools used to shockproof naval equipment on combatants.  The monograph is divided into five chapters: Chapter 1 - Introduction and Shock Test Machines and Vehicles, Chapter 2 - Normal Mode Theory, Chapter 3 - US Navy Dynamic Design Analysis Method (DDAM), Chapter 4 - Time-History Shock Analyses, and Chapter 5 - Shock Analysis in the Plastic Regime.


Underwater Explosions
by R. Cole (published 2007)

Price: $95

Taken from Underwater Explosions Preface (1948) - "The content and purpose of this book are largely the result of research on underwater explosions carried out by many groups in the years 1941-46.  Much of the present knowledge and understanding of this field was acquired because of the demands of these war years and the few available discussions on the subject have become inadequate or obsolete.  This book is an attempt to supply a reasonably comprehensive account which will be of use both to workers in the field of underwater explosions and to others interested in the basic physical processes involved.

This classic work was reprinted under SAVIAC in late 2007 under permission granted by Professor John Berberian (St. Joseph's University) representing the estate of Robert Cole.


An Introduction to Rotordynamics
by F. Nelson (published 2011)

Price: $45

This monograph adopts the tried and true method of starting with analytical solutions of simple models, i.e. the Jeffcott rotor, and working up to computer-based solution of real-world rotors. Chapter 1 uses Jeffcott’s original rotor model that represents the disk as a centrally located point mass to study the effects of external damping and internal damping on rotor performance and stability. Chapter 2 considers the case when the disk has appreciable diametral and polar inertia and is non-central. It covers gyroscopic effects, the Campbell diagram, and the critical speed map. Chapter 3 moves beyond the Jeffcott rotor to discuss the Transfer Matrix Method and the Finite Element Method, both of which are widely used to analyze real-world rotors. Chapter 4 discusses matters that were not included in Loewy and Piarulli: the behavior of journal bearings, rolling element bearings, and liquid-filled and gas-filled seals. Chapter 5 is a brief review of the balancing of rigid rotors and Chapter 6 is an equally brief review of torsional rotor vibration. It should be emphasized that linear methods are used throughout this monograph.

This work was completed posthumously for Professor Fred Nelson by Professor Harland Alpaugh of Tufts University.
