Military Standard 810G Training (MIL-STD-810G)
Military Standard 810G Training (MIL-STD-810G) Course – Hands-on
This four-day Military Standard 810G Training (MIL-STD-810G) class will provide education in the purpose of each test, the equipment required to perform each test, and the methodology to correctly apply the specified test environments. Vibration and Shock methods will be covered together and will include an overview of Sine and Random Vibration as well as classical waveform shock testing, drop testing and Shock Response Spectrum Testing. Instrumentation, vibration equipment, control systems and fixture design will be covered.
Each climatic test will be discussed individually, focusing on requirements, origination, equipment required, test methodology and understanding of results. Class members will participate in a tour of a lab that daily performs the full spectrum of 810G tests. Discussion, supported by projected visuals and video clips. Commencing with a review of basic vibrations, we will explore vibration measurements and analysis. We’ll compare sinusoidal vs. random vibration testing systems, specifications, standards and procedures. We will emphasize vibration and shock test fixture design, fabrication, experimental evaluation and usage. We will study shock measurement, shock response spectrum (SRS) and shock testing.
Climatic testing will be looked at in great detail, emphasizing required equipment and instrumentation, correct interpretation of specifications and hints to ensure that the tests are brought to a successful conclusion.
The Military Standard 810G Training (MIL-STD-810G) course emphasizes topics you will use immediately. Suppliers to the military services protectively install commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment in our flight and land vehicles and in shipboard locations where vibration and shock can be severe. We laboratory test the protected equipment (1) to assure twenty years equipment survival and possible combat, also (2) to meet commercial test standards, IEC documents, military standards such as STANAG or MIL-STD-810G, etc.
Military Standard 810G Training (MIL-STD-810G) Course – Customize it
- We can adapt this MIL-STD-810G training course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
- If you are familiar with some aspects of this MIL-STD-810G training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
- We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Military Standard 810G Training (MIL-STD-810G) around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
- If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the Military Standard 810G Training (MIL-STD-810G) course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
Military Standard 810G Training (MIL-STD-810G) Course – Audience/Target Group
The target audience for this MIL-STD-810G training course:
- This course is aimed at people who need to perform, witness or specify environmental testing in accordance with MIL-STD-810.
Military Standard 810G Training (MIL-STD-810G) Course – Objectives
After completing this MIL-STD-810G Training course, students will be able to:
- Perform vibration, shock and climatic tests
- evaluate and select equipment to perform testing
- Convert field measured data into a test program
- Interpret vibration and shock test requirements and results
- Supervise vibration, shock and climatic tests
- Specify and experimentally evaluate vibration and shock test fixtures
When you visit a test lab or review a test program, you will have a good understanding of the requirements and execution of dynamics and climatics tests and so be able to ask meaningful questions and understand laboratory personnel responses.
