The participants will learn to:
- understand the physics and operating characteristics of dynamic pressure, and acceleration transducers and constraints associated with their use;
- Interface transducers effectively within intended test environments;
- Condition transducer signals to maintain their fidelity through selection of appropriate cabling, amplifiers, analog filters, sampling rates, DAQs, etc.;
- Document extraneous measurands (strain, temperature, ionization products of a detonation, magnetic fields, etc.) that superpose as noise on the desired transducer response;
- Apply corrective action for elimination of these noise levels;
- Validate that final, recorded signals contain only the desired (force, pressure, or acceleration) data;
- Perform "back of the envelope" checks to assure the bandwidth of the recording system did not impose constraints on recorded data;
- Perform sensor and system calibration, data analysis, and data utilization.
The cost is $595 USD per person and includes seminar materials, meals, and entertainment. Class size is limited to the first 40 paid registrants.
