Design and Fabrication of a System for Accelerometer Testing that Accurately Simulates a Rail Car

Students pursued the development of a testing system consisting of two main components:  the physical vibration platform and shaker head, and the test suites written in LabView that will control the input to the system.  Several algorithms were considered to control the amplitude during a sweep.  After prototyping and testing, the best algorithm was implemented in the design.
