Abstract : The report presents a method of correlating the results of vibration and shock tests on the P-140 reactor core mockup with elemental shock and vibration theory. The natural frequency and the spring rate of the spring-mass system as well as the magnitude and nature of the damping in the system are developed. (Author)
