3. Definitions Response spectrum A curve representative of the variations of the largest response of a linear onedegree-of-freedom system subjected to a mechanical excitation, plotted against its natural frequency f0 = for a given value of its damping ratio. Absolute acceleration shock response spectrum In the most usual cases where the excitation is defined by an absolute acceleration of the support or by a force applied directly to the mass, the response of the system can be characterized by the absolute acceleration of the mass (which could be measured using an accelerometer fixed to this mass): the response spectrum is then called the absolute acceleration shock response spectrum.
The stresses generated by several shocks of the same spectra (in the frequency range including the principal resonance frequencies), but of different shapes [DEW 84], were measured and compared. One noted that for this assembly whatever the number of degrees of freedom, — two pulses of simple form (with no velocity change) having the same spectrum induce similar stresses, the variation not exceeding approximately 20 %. It is the same for two oscillatory shocks; — the relationship between the stresses measured for a simple shock and an oscillatory shock can reach 2.

Difference between shock response spectrum (SRS) and extreme response spectrum (ERS) A spectrum known as of extreme response spectrum (ERS) and comparable with the shock response spectrum (SRS) is often used for the study of vibrations (Volume 5). This spectrum gives the largest response of a linear single-degree-of-freedom system according to its natural frequency, for a given Q factor, when it is subjected to the vibration under investigation. In the case of the vibrations, of long duration, this response takes place during the vibration: the ERS is thus a primary spectrum.
