 Software Description



This program converts a PSD to a weighted format per ISO 2631-1 (1997) & 2631-4 (2001)
It applies the following factors per the user's selection:
Wk, Wd, Wf, Wc, We, Wj, and Wb.
The input PSD may have either a constant bandwidth or one-third octave format.
The output is the weighted r.m.s. aw.
The Aw is for the given data segment duration. Separate scaling formulas must be used to calculate the equivalent Aw value for 4 or 8 hours durations, as appropriate. This same note applies to the other programs in this section.
This program converts a Fourier transform magnitude to a weighted format per ISO 2631-1 (1997) & 2631-4 (2001).
The input Fourier transform magnitude must be one-sided with full amplitude. It may have either a constant bandwidth or one-third octave format.
The output is the weighted r.m.s. aw.
This program converts an acceleration time history to a weighted format per ISO 2631-1 (1997) & 2631-4 (2001).
The output is the weighted r.m.s. aw.
