PV = pseudo velocity
The following method is intended for components which are to be tested to power spectral density (PSD) specifications on shaker tables. The method can be applied to sine-on-random specifications as well.
The purpose of this document is to recommend velocity severity categories for PSD base inputs in terms of Stress-Velocity Relationship (SVR) fatigue damage.
The categories can then be used to plan the design and analysis efforts required to ensure that a component will pass its PSD test, or at least mitigate risk of failure with associated cost and schedule delays.
The method draws from Gaberson, Steinberg, Morse and Dirlik.
