Working Group on Measurement and Evaluation of Mechanical Vibration of Vehicles
Chair: Kevin Danahy
Scope: Develop and maintain standards for measurement, evaluation and characterization of structure-borne noise and mechanical vibration of ships including required instrumentation; measurement procedures; data analysis; criteria for occupant performance, structural integrity and vibrational environment of machinery and equipment. Maintain communication and liaison with related ANSI WGs, relevant US regulatory agencies and relevant ISO standards groups.
Responsible for the following published standards:
- ANSI/ASA S2.25 – Guide for the Measurement, Reporting, and Evaluation of Hull and Superstructure Vibration in Ships
- ANSI/ASA S2.26 – Vibration Testing Requirements and Acceptance Criteria for Shipboard Equipment
- ANSI/ASA S2.27 – Guidelines for the Measurement and Evaluation of Vibration of Ship Propulsion Machinery
