    Drop Test Validation

    Tony Gatta

      Greets all.  Am trying to recreate (simulate) some real world drop tests we did and am having

      trouble correlating.  Using Simulation 2009.  I believe I know all of my real world parameters

      (mass/size of object, exact drop height, etc), and I know the mechanical properties of my "flexible

      floor" to a high degree (spring rate, density, thickness, etc).

       

      However, my accelerometer reported 200+g and Simulation about 30g.  I now find myself wondering

      if I'm not comparing apples to apples.

       

      Simulation ran for 2000ms, so I'm sure I would've caught the peak.

       

      Any insight greatly appreciated.
