Handling of Accelerometers

This course focuses on the handling of regular accelerometers. In the first part basics the functionality, mounting and demounting as well as potential mistakes by measuring vibration will be explained. An introduction about handling of measuring amplifiers will be given, too. During the practical session, accelerometers will be mounted and demounted. Physical effects due to different mounting conditions will be explained and demonstrated.


- Introduction to the principles and properties of accelerometers
- Possible sources of error during the measurement
- Causes of failure
- Guidelines for the handling of accelerometers

Practical section with exercises:

- Securing and release techniques
- Methodical testing of frequency response for selected securing methods
- Using suitable adhesives for securing the sensors, plus their removal and cleaning the sensors
- Noise and hum, avoidance of ground loops
- Limits of resolution when carrying out measurements
- Transverse acceleration effects
- Base strain and thermal effects
- Mass loading effects on structures
- Checking and calibration of sensors
- Handling of cables and their replacement on miniature sensors

Measurement equipment and sensors with which to conduct their own practical work will be available to the participants at various work stations manned by specialists. Participants also have the opportunity to use their own sensors for the tests.
