Nonparametric Tests for Equivalence of Vibration Data 630344

This paper is concerned with the use of nonparametric statistical equivalence tests as a tool in vibration data analysis and evaluation. The need for equivalence tests is discussed with reference to classical procedures. The desirability of a nonparametric approach to the problem is then considered. A specific nonparametric test based upon the number of runs that are observed in a collection of measurements is outlined. The procedure is illustrated by two numerical examples representing important data evaluation problems.
