A2LA’s acoustics and vibration testing field covers laboratory tests for a variety of products centered around vibration resistance and audial measurements.
Included within this field of testing are certain environmental simulation tests that focus strictly on vibrations and vibration-related shock, such as drop testing and seismic shocks as well as structural and airborne vibrations that may affect products. In addition to these types of vibration tests, acoustic tests may be performed either in relation to the vibration tests or separate from vibrations.
Acoustic testing laboratories may focus on the following attributes as they apply to home theater equipment, mechanical products like robotic assembly line arms, or even acoustic ceiling tiles: Sound output | Quality | Intensity | Absorption | Pressure
