Hi All, I was looking at an integrated file from my long period horizontal and = several questions arose. First, since this is a velocity sensor the = integration should provide displacement. What I am finding is that the = integrated data does not start at zero. I would anticipate that with no = starting conditions known the displacement would be constrained to zero = initially. Secondly, this particular data begins with positive velocity = but the integration gives a negative displacement. Here are the first 8 = points of data and the integration. I used the PSN2TEXT.exe to extract = the data file and I used cursor position on the WinQuake screen to get = the integrated points. The DC offset is about -5 for the file so data = should be reduced by that amount and the rate is about 1.2 sps. Does = anyone have an explanation?
