Part of the TCSS Symposium

Gas cylinders are moving to the 21st century and collars with electronics to track the position, contents and condition of the cylinder are being placed on them. However, people put these cylinders in trucks or sometimes drop them and vibrations are induced. What are those vibrations and could they damage the electronics? Cylinders were examined in a series of impulse and drop tests, in order to record the vibration levels and resonant frequencies. These measurements were compared to theoretically derived values, using vibration theory and Finite Element Methods. The response of cylinders to other vibration-inducing conditions was derived and several factors that affect the cylinder vibrations were examined.
