Abstract
The report describes the theory and operation of a computer program referred to as SPADE (Signal Processing and Data Enhancement). SPADE is a computer program for the numerical processing of transducer signal data available in the form of digital computer files from air-blast structural response trials. In addition, the program can graphically compare the processed data with predictions made using the finite element structural analysis computer programs VAST and ADINA. SPADE is a fully interactive program that can be run from a computer terminal. The Tektronix TCS PLOT 10 and AGII packages are used to optionally give an interactive plotting capability. The program has a reasonably comprehensive set of options which makes it easy and convenient to process the voluminous amount of data that can be generated during a shock wave-structure interaction experiment. With reasonable ease the program can be adapted to the processing of any type of transducer output. TRUNCATED
