Resonance

John,

The input acceleration in my experiment is about 1G.

In order to estimate the failure time, firstly, I should found the static strength of the material of the beam from some reference books and compute the stress of the beam. By knowing the ratio (the static strength to the stress) and increase the G-level of the beam's excitation according to the ratio (by multipy the ratio by the original G-level), the beam will break soon. Right?

Regards,
Tracy
