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 ...

2. Primary Calibration of Accelerometers by Optical Methods, NIST and USAF
Published: 4/1/2011
Authors: Beverly Francis Payne, Jerry Steffen
Abstract: This paper describes ongoing efforts to provide high quality calibration of accelerometers by NIST for military and civilian labs. Traditionally the approach is the calibration of reference accelerometers by NIST for labs requiring calibrations with ...

3. A Next Generation Electrodynamic Shaker for the Primary Calibration of Accelerometers
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7724
Published: 9/1/2010
Authors: Beverly Francis Payne, Kari K Harper
Abstract: A shaker system was designed to allow direct primary calibration of accelerometers using both reciprocity and interferometer techniques over the frequency range 40 Hz to 10,000 Hz. The system use dual magnets and a dual-coil moving element. The desig ...

4. Modeling and Experimental Analysis of Piezoelectric Shakers for High-Frequency Calibration of Accelerometers
Published: 6/22/2010
Authors: Gregory W Vogl, Kari K Harper, Beverly Francis Payne
Abstract: Piezoelectric shakers have been developed and used at NIST for decades for high-frequency calibration of accelerometers. Recently, NIST researchers built new piezoelectric shakers in the hopes of enabling more accurate calibrations of accelerometers ...

5. Piezoelectric Shaker Development for High Frequency Calibration of Accelerometers
Published: 6/22/2010
Authors: Beverly Francis Payne, Gregory W Vogl, Kari K Harper
Abstract: Calibration of vibration transducers requires sinusoidal motion over a wide frequency range with low distortion and low cross-axial motion. Piezoelectric shakers are well suited to generate such motion and are suitable for use with laser interferomet ...

6. Single Point Optical Calibration of Accelerometers at NIST
Published: 6/21/2006
Author: Beverly Francis Payne
Abstract: Typical accelerometer calibrations by laser interferometer are performed by measuring displacement at three places on the shaker table. Each of these measurements made along the perimeter of the accelerometer require repositioning and realigning of ...

7. Improvements in Accelerometer Calibration Using Fringe Counting and Minimum Point Methods
Published: 10/1/2003
Authors: Beverly Francis Payne, Kari K Harper
Abstract: Improvements in shaker and interferometer design at NIST have provided more reliable calibration of accelerometers by laser interferometry. A dual-coil shaker provides excitation with low distortion and low cross-axis motion. Calibrations are pe ...

8. 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 ...

9. 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 ...

10. 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 ...
