Techniques for the Normalization of Shock Data

This paper describes a procedure that was developed at the Lockheed Missiles and Space Company that "normalizes" the data acquired by different data acquisition systems so that the data sets measured by the machines are directly comparable and can comply with the requirements of the proposed handbook "Guidelines for Dynamic Data Acquisition and Analysis". The normalization process adjusts data acquired by any machine that is capable of acquiring shock data to appear as if it was acquired by a "standard" machine. Correction includes compensation for differences in data-acquisition speed, transducer characteristics, anti-alias filtering, and ac-coupling frequency.
