**RESCHEDULED** Practical Shock Analysis & Design Training in Newport, RI

Sep 20 - 24, 2021 · Middletown, United States of America

This 5-day course provides participants with a comprehensive treatment of practical shock design and analytical shock simulation with special emphasis on requirements, methods, and procedures for naval qualification for shock produced by underwater explosion by both test and analytical means. All course materials are updated to include MIL-DTL901E test requirements.

The course will be especially useful to those concerned with shock design and/or qualification of structures, machinery, and equipment for U.S. Navy combatant vessels. Current applicable acquisition programs include DDG 51, DDG 1000, LPD 17, SSN 774, OHIO Replacement, CVN 78, LHA 6, LCS 1&2, FF, as well as fleet upgrades and service life extensions.

Although this course is aimed primarily at shock design applications on naval vessels, the analysis and design techniques presented are equally applicable to design and modeling related to seismic shock, blast induced ground shock, pyroshock, gun fire shock, ballistic shock and vehicle mobility shock.

Topics covered will include:

  • Introduction to Mechanical Shock
  • Review of Basic Vibration Theory and SDOF Systems
  • Navy Shock Qualification Process
  • Shock Qualification by Extension
  • Shock Qualifications by Test
  • Underwater Shock Phenomena
  • Shock Qualification by DDAM
  • Practical Design Considerations
  • Optimum Foundation Design
  • Shock Measurement
  • Overview of the Shock Response Spectrum (SRS)
  • Multi-Degree-of-Freedom Systems
  • Special Design and Analysis Tools
  • Use of Finite Element Analysis for Transient Analysis
  • Comparison of MDOF System Response from Transient Analysis and SRS/Mode Superposition

The registration fee includes a comprehensive set of course notes, a compilation of papers by the instructors, text book Naval Shock Analysis & Design by Rudolph J. Scavuzzo and Henry C. Pusey, text book Underwater Explosions by Robert H. Cole, and a daily lunch.

A reduced-rate room block will be set aside for attendees. Instructions for booking will be included with your order confirmation email.

Please register as soon as possible to ensure course availability. All courses are subject to cancellation if adequate attendance is not met.
