This article, the third in a three-part series, is extracted from Technical Document (TD 2071) published by the Naval Ocean Systems Center in April, 1991. Titled "Tailoring Shipboard Environmental Specifications, A Guide for Navy Program Managers," the document presents a compilation of shipboard environmental data measured over the years. The applicability of the data to the fleet of today is discussed. Methods of tailoring systems specifications and tests for the environment existing at given locations on a variety of naval ships are also included.
The first article in the series (Journal of the IES, p. 25, March/April, 1992) included the Introduction, Temperature and Humidity, and Shock sections of TD 2071. The second article in the series (Journal of the IES, p. 27, May/June, 1992) covered the first part of the TD 2071 discussion of vibration. This article finishes the discussion of vibration and includes a "tailored" vibration requirement that a program manager might include in a procurement package for new shipboard systems.
