92nd Shock and Vibration Symposium

September 18, 2022 - September 22, 2022

The annual Shock and Vibration Symposium is the leading forum for the structural dynamics and vibration community to present and discuss new developments and on-going research. The Symposium was established in 1947 and typically includes both unclassified (unlimited and limited distribution) and classified sessions. Topics covered at the symposium include shock-ship testing, water shock, weapons effects (air blast, ground shock, cratering, penetration) shock physics, earthquake engineering, structural dynamics, and shock and vibration instrumentation and experiment techniques. Over 200  technical papers are typically presented. Panel discussions address topics such as new software developments or accelerometer isolation problems. Tutorials provide up-to-date technology overviews by leading specialists.

HI-TEST Laboratories is responsible for all planning and operational aspects of the symposium.

This will be HI-TEST’s 20th consecutive year of running the annual Shock and Vibration Symposium



The Technical Program, quality of content, and exchange of information is the heart of our annual event.

Dedicated Session Abstract Submittal: For use in submitting abstracts that are to be included in a session being organized for a focused content area. Dedicated Sessions should have at least four presentations. A Dedicated Session should have at least one identifiable session developer for contact by SAVE staff.

Tutorial Abstract Submittal: For use in submitting abstracts for a 3-hour college level presentation that seeks to further educate attendees in specific areas of shock and vibration. You will be expected to provide the attendees with history, definitions, basic equations, where, who and why it is used, resources for additional education, and future developments.

Training Abstract Submittal: For use in submitting abstracts for a a 60-minute to 120-minute college level presentation that seeks to introduce people to a subject they are not familiar with. Suitable for entry level and mid-level presentations regarding specific topics.

Discussion Group Abstract Submittal: For use in submitting abstracts for a 60 – 120 minute informal meeting of people interested in the topic up for discussion.

Meeting Abstract Submittal: For use in organizing a formal or informal meeting of a specified time duration. Organizer is responsible for developing the agenda and determining if the meeting has open or restricted attendance.
