Title NSTF Shaker Commissioning Using Resonant Mass Dummy
Abstract A new vibration facility has been built as part of the newly built National Satellite Testing Faculty at RAL Space. A resonant mass dummy was designed to commission shakers and verify their overturning moments to ensure they function as specified when the purchase was made. When developing the commissioning plan for the newly installed shakers, it was determined that some form of dummy object was needed that was a robust and repeatable tool for the commission and shaker calibration. This object would be a means to prove the shaker worked as intended at high overturning moments. As development continued, it also became a tool to verify RAL Space's force measurement device.
