I was performing some quality control (research...) on our signal processing package and was confused by some algos that were in there, and what this phantom 'wbc' variable was. I was having a hell of a time googling with nothing making sense, until I came across a thread from the old forums (about 10 years ago) where Pete deconstructed the phenomenon of Amplitude Correction Factors and Energy Correction Factors for windowing, which are related to the wbc or wideband correction factor that I was dealing with. As a result, I realized that I've been spot-calibrating some of my sensor incorrectly for 2 years.

It goes to show, that clearly explaining something in this forum can have more of a positive benefit on others than you may ever know.

Thanks Pete.

There is an awful lot of good content over there - a couple of decades worth! - except you won't find the content that ultimately resulted in the creation of this board.  But honestly, if you don't find what you're looking for here, you can search over there.  Just don't stay over there too long... you might catch something. [wink]

Yes there is still a lot of info on the other board but that old content somehow was sold without any input from members.  But I'm sure that was covered in fineprint. And hats off to Rusty for suggesting that old destination for the betterment of the reliability industry. . TO made a dogs breakfast of it to be polite.

Soo. it still contains useful info but I encourage people who are serious to focus on this forum with their current questions.  You will be a lot happier.

Note I am a moderator so naturally biased.  Full disclosure. rgds

I'm fully aware of the bad blood. I never actually peruse the AMP forums, but during a general google search, posts in AMP as well as this forum pop up a lot. I've even had my own posts come up in mildly-related google searches. This thread wasn't to advertise the old forum in any way. I just wanted to point out that your forum discussions from 10 years ago can still be very helpful to the inexperienced analyst, no matter where they are hosted.

Curran, I didn't think that at all.  As I said, there is a LOT of good info there.  I posted a ton of stuff there.  When I left that site, I thought about deleting it, but that would have just been petty, and not in the best interest of the vibration community.  I thought of moving my stuff over here, but taken out of the original context, it makes little sense. 

When we post something, we are more or less "publishing" that content for public use, without a copyright, or disclaimers.  It's what makes the internet great, and frustrating, and a little dangerous sometimes.

I saved a copy of the even more prehistoric older site right before when our friend crashed it w/o backup a half of a eon of time ago so I have it published but very akward so maybe you like to have the dump? It was then running on a SUN machine somewhere with little or no protection so it was not to difficult to make a backup at that time. I have the in fact "blessing" from TO as he wasn't able to do much about it and he didn't want to spend the effort to even make it possible to search it and did accept the fact that it was as it was. It is anyway a gathering of a quite some time of quite a few people's experience that should/could be handled some way.

Thanks for the kind words Curran. Glad there was something useful in all that rambling. 

We definitely have a good bunch here and I'm glad you've joined us.
