Accumulated Cycles & Q related to frequency
Accumulated Cycles
This program calculates the number of stress cycles under a resonance for a
swept sine test.
Knowing the Q (resonant gain) and sweep rate, it determines the number of
stress cycles (for one sweep) accumulated while sweeping through the resonance.
Note : The half power point is approximately 3.01dB below the resonant peak (actually 1/√2 ).
Q related to resonant frequency
Using the mathematical function found in MILSTD810F. This program calculates
the predicted Q of a structure (beam) related to frequency.
It will also determine the Zeta ζ (damping ratio) which is directly related to Q.
