1. Piezoelectric Shaker Developments for Calibration of Accelerometers at Extended Frequencies
Published: 6/13/2012
Authors: Beverly Francis Payne, David J Evans
Abstract: Piezoelectric shakers are well suited to generate motion suitable for use with laser interferometric methods at frequencies of 3 kHz and above. One advantage of piezoelectric shakers is the higher achievable accelerations and displacement amplitudes ...

3. Report on Acceleration Comparison SIM.AUV.V-K1 - Draft B
Published: 3/20/2009
Authors: David J Evans, Adriana Hornikova, Stefan D Leigh, Andrew L Rukhin, William E Strawderman
Abstract: The first regional key comparison in vibration conducted under the auspices of the Inter-American System of Metrology (SIM) was begun in 1996. The comparison was registered with the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) through the Con ...

5. Primary Calibration of Accelerometers at NIST Using a Dual Coil Shaker
Published: 11/1/2001
Authors: Beverly Francis Payne, David J Evans
Abstract: Until recently, the primary calibration of accelerometers at NIST over a frequency range of 50 Hz to 5 kHz utilized three different shakers with separate measurement systems. With the development of the NIST supershaker and associated calibration sy ...

6. Reference Values for the Sensitivity of Standard Accelerometers Used in Intercomparisons
Published: 11/1/2000
Authors: David J Evans, Stefan D Leigh, Beverly Francis Payne
Abstract: The National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) of 5 countries in North America and South America participated in an interlaboratory comparison involving the calibration of the magnitude of the sensitivity of 3 standard accelerometers. This comparison was p ...

7. Errors in Accelerometer Calibration Using Laser interferometry Due to Harmonic Distortion and Cross Motion in the Applied Motion
Published: 6/1/2000
Authors: Beverly Francis Payne, David J Evans
Abstract: The development of exciters for the precise calibration of accelerometers requires minimizing distortion and cross motion in the exciter (shaker). It is well known that both distortion and cross motion can introduce significant errors in the calibrat ...

8. Comparison of Results of Calibrating the Magnitude of the Sensitivity of Accelerometers by Laser Interferometry and Reciprocity
Published: 1/1/1999
Authors: Beverly Francis Payne, David J Evans
Abstract: Minimizing the uncertainty in the calibration of accelerometers by the reciprocity method requires minimizing the cross-axis component of the induced motion, and the distortion of its waveform. Minimizing the uncertainty in the calibration of acceler ...
