m+p VibSlideRule

Multi-Function Vibration Calculator

The m+p VibSlideRule offers a wide range of useful calculating tools for vibration testing and structural analysis. It helps visualise the relationships that apply and includes units conversions.

Typical applications:

  • Test development
  • Analysis
  • Test set-up
  • Calibration and error analysis

m+p VibSlideRule is free-ware and can be installed without a license.

Note: m+p VibSlideRule is included in m+p Analyzer/m+p Analyzer Viewer/m+p VibControl installers and does not have to be installed separately.

m+p VibSlideRule provides tools for:

icon sine
  • calculate displacement, velocity, acceleration and frequency
  • supports translational as well as rotational/angular motion
  • calculate sweep time and number of cycles for a sine sweep defined by start- and stop frequency, sweep type and sweep rate
icon psd
  • definition of arbitrary PSD-spectrum using linear interpolation between data-points
  • calculate corresponding RMS- and peak-values for displacement, velocity, acceleration
  • export PSD-spectrum for use in m+p VibControl using linear-linear or linear-logarithmic axis scaling (e.g. according to IEC 61373 – random testing)
icon psd-rms
  • calculate RMS-value for given bandwidth and constant PSD-spectrum
icon shock
  • half-sine, saw tooth, rectangle and trapezoid pulse shapes
  • compute pulse width, peak acceleration and velocity change
icon force-moment
  • compute moment, force and distance
icon gain
  • compute input-output ratio (linear and dB)
  • supports amplitude and power input values
icon error
  • compute errors for true and actual measurements (% and dB)
icon units-conversion
  • convert values between different units
    Force: N ↔ lbf
    Transducer Sensitivity: mV/’Unit’ ↔ ‘Unit’/V
    Acceleration: m/s² ↔ g
    Velocity: m/s ↔ in/s
    Displacement: mm ↔ in
