Vibrationstest of an ExoMars Component

  • The shock produced by activation of a Frangi-Bolt is measured and the SRS is directly analyzed on site (OHB premises).
  • The resulting shock loads for neighboring components have been  derived by similarity-heritage-extrapolation, following the methods proposed by ESA
    • SRS ratio method
    • Zoning procedure
    • Test prediction based on modal properties derived by FEA
  • KRP has further proposed shock attenuation solutions for this project
  • For a different ExoMars component, vibration measurements were performed (at SGS). Two kinds of tests were done:
    • Resonance search
    • Identification of optimum operational frequency with respect to function (high vibration at a selected position) and shock loads (low SRS at the interface)
