Bart, What I believe Tom was saying without being blunt enough is that no matter how much you say, people have their minds made up about these axles. Never have I seen a more derisive topic discussed. When ever the WBCCI debate gets too heavy, switch over to an axle thread and you will be brought right back down a bit.

auto-morph...

..some threads have an auto-morph-into-pissin-match mode...any one with the word "axle" in the title..

..quite entertaining, though, much more so than watching paint dry....

I'd not had the required math classes prior. Once I had those the advance vibrations classes were a snap. Boy how I struggled early on though.

Decent accelerometers cost serious bucks

To which I said "doubtful". "Suitable" is the keyword here.

I invite you to strap an iPhone to the floor with the given app enabled. My first thought is that it will not have the sensitivity required for any reasonable analysis.

My second thought is that it will not have the sensitivity required for any reasonable analysis.

Since I don't have an iPhone, and subsequently do not know its capability, I will PayPal you $20 if you can provide a graph of data in 10 millisecond increments. Any decent lab can provide the same data real-time.

With what I've read from Barts in the short time he's been here, I think you best get your $20 out and get some postage on it.
