Abstract:
Combining the quasi-static loads, workmanship verification, and model validation tests of aerospace hardware into a single vibration test sequence can considerably reduce schedule and cost. The enabling factor in the implementation of the combined dynamic testing approach is the measurement of the dynamic forces exerted on the test item by the shaker. The dynamic testing of the QuikSCAT spacecraft is discussed as an example of a successful combined loads, workmanship, and model validation test program.
