Are you attending the SAE 2015 Noise and Vibration Conference and Exhibition in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA from 22nd to 25th June 2015?

Why not go and see Dr Colin Mercer, one of our principal authors, co-present the technical session – “The History and Future of Fourier Analysis Workshop” on Wednesday, June 24 at 6.00pm.

Frequency analysis is often referred to as Fourier analysis but is that really true? The foundation is based on stationary and “Fourier signals.” What happens if that is not the case? Modern FFT signal analyzers use very sparse sampling that is correct according to Shannon but what will happen when using time domain analysis. Many of the myths and frequent questions will be answered using a “user perspective” and rules of thumb will be given together with good methods to avoid large errors. After attending this session, a much better understanding in regards to pitfalls and proper methodology will be the outcome.

You will find full details of the session here.
