This paper introduces and develops the Velocity Intensity Spectrum as an analytical tool for examining transient data in the frequency domain. The Velocity Intensity Spectrum is then compared with three common alternatives: the Shock Response Spectrum, the Pseudo Velocity Spectrum, and the lesser-known Shock Intensity Spectrum, upon which it is based. The various techniques are applied to an experimental data set and compared and discussed in a practical manner.
