No, I am not talking about standing around with your mouth open.  In this post, I am going to talk about how you can use a Response Spectrum Analysis to analyze transient shock loads.  Transient shock loads can come in any form. However, three common shock forms that often need to be analyzed are: half sine pulse, saw-tooth pulse and trapezoid pulse, see Figure 1.
