Mechanical Shock Testing
Mechanical shock testing is the result of suddenly applied forces or abrupt changes in motion. Shocks of this type may disturb operating characteristics or cause damage similar to that resulting from excessive vibration, particularly if the shock pulses are repetitive.
The mechanical shock test is intended to determine the suitability of the devices for use in electronic equipment that is subjected to moderately sever shocks as the result of rough handling, transportation, or field operation. Mechanical shock testing utilizes shock and drop testing; it is considered to be destructive.
