The tutorial would be broken into 3 sections:

    • Vibration measurement applications
    • Vibration sensor design/construction
    • Calibration theory


Vibration calibration class will dive into calibration theory, standards, and methodology for dynamic sensors as well as detailed construction of different sensor types and the operational theories behind them. Common errors in sensor calibration such as transverse sensitivity, cable type, sensor mounting, and crystal composition and layout will be explored. Target audience is beginner to intermediate level.
