88th Shock and Vibration Symposium

October 15 - 19, 2017 | Jacksonville, Florida

The annual Shock and Vibration Symposium is the leading forum for the structural dynamics and vibration community to present and discuss new developments and on-going research. The Symposium was established in 1947 and typically includes both unclassified (unlimited and limited distribution) and classified sessions.  Topics covered at the symposium include shock-ship testing, water shock, weapons effects (air blast, ground shock, cratering, penetration) shock physics, earthquake engineering, structural dynamics, and shock and vibration instrumentation and experiment techniques. Over 200  technical papers are typically presented. Panel discussions address topics such as new software developments or accelerometer isolation problems. Tutorials provide up-to-date technology overviews by leading specialists.


HI-TEST Laboratories is responsible for all planning and operational aspects of the symposium. 
This will be HI-TEST's 16th consecutive year of running the annual Shock and Vibration Symposium.
