Joint Damping Experiment - Structural Monitoring in Space
The Space Shuttle Endeavor carried the CR10 and CR9000
dataloggers into orbit as part of the NASA-funded, Utah State
University-produced Joint Damping Experiment. The
experiment measured the influence of gravity on structural
damping with the goal of better understanding the behavior of
structures in space. The CR10 controlled the experiment,
while the CR9000 measured acceleration of the system in the
x, y, and z axes, and the response of structural joints to a
"twang" from a solenoid. The experiment was GAS payload
on STS-69.
