Axial/Lateral Test Results (T2)

This test was performed to determine the capabilities of the proposed linkage system and to determine the damping effects of submerging such a system in water. Preliminary results show the capability to drive the system in both lateral and axial vibration at many different frequencies through rubber seals. The expected amplitude ratio between axial and lateral vibration was also noted. The water provided considerable attenuation to the vibration signal, reducing the lateral vibration by a factor of 1.9 and the axial vibration by a factor of 3.5. These values are unlikely to scale to the full facility, but it is likely that the lateral and axial damping will be different from each other.
