Vibration Testing is when machinery and/or components are subjected to repetitive dynamic loads covering the range of frequencies expected during field operation. The reaction of the specimen to these frequencies will illustrate harmonic vibrations and unstable conditions.
ASTM D999 - 08(2015) Standard Test Methods for Vibration Testing of Shipping Containers: Shipping containers are exposed to complex dynamic stresses when subjected to vibration present in all transportation vehicles. Approximating the actual damage, or lack of damage, experienced in shipping may require subjecting the container(s) and contents to vibration inputs.
ASTM D4728 - 17 Standard Test Method for Random Vibration Testing of Shipping Containers: Shipping containers are exposed to complex dynamic stresses in the distribution environment. Approximating the actual damage, or lack of damage, experienced in real life may require subjecting the container and its contents to random vibration tests. In this way, many product and container resonances are simultaneously excited.
ASTM D7387 - 13 Standard Test Method for Vibration Testing of Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) Used for Shipping Liquid Hazardous Materials (Dangerous Goods): Shipping containers are exposed to complex dynamic stresses when subjected to vibration present in transportation vehicles. Approximating the actual damage, or lack of damage, experienced in shipping may require subjecting the container(s) and contents to vibration inputs.
CAN/CGSB-43.146 Design, Manufacture and Use of Intermediate Bulk Containers for the Transportation of Dangerous Goods, Classes 3, 4, 5, 6.1, 8 and 9: sets out the requirements for design and manufacture of UN standardized intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) with a capacity less than or equal to 5000 L (under certain conditions) and the selection and use of UN standardized IBCs and other equivalent specifications for transport of dangerous goods included in Class 3, 4, 5, 6.1, 8 or 9.
WESTEST is equipped to provide advanced vibration testing by blending the best of both traditional and leading edge technologies to identify the types and characteristics of noise along with identifying appropriate noise-control measures.
WESTEST can apply its noise and vibration testing and control program in several situations:
- Sound level readings in any noise environment
- Noise reduction programs in factories
- Vibration level readings of machines and mechanical equipment
- Vibration reduction programs of machines and mechanical equipment
- Specifications and standards testing of products
Although the invisible nature of sound poses challenges in measuring and analyzing noise, the advanced technologies WESTEST employs allow for accurate identification of the source and characteristics of noise, which help focus on design solutions.
The impact of design changes can be measured immediately because WESTEST measurement equipment provides instant visual interpretation of noise. The equipment is fully portable to measure noise in any environment and is versatile for quick configuration to measure sound pressure, sound intensity, and mechanical vibration. Our combined knowledge and advanced technology provide services to give clients the edge in the marketplace.
