The use of accelerometers to monitor the vibrations of either complex machinery or simple components involves some considerations about the mounting of the sensor to the structure. Different types of mounting solutions are commonly used, but in all cases they can be classified in one of these categories: stud mounting, screw mounting, adhesive mounting, magnetic mounting, and probe sensing. Indeed, each of them has a specific field of application depending on e.g. the mounting surface conditions, the temperature, the accessibility to the specific mounting point, etc. The choice of the mounting solution has an important effect on the accuracy of the usable frequency response of the accelerometer, since the higher the stiffness of the fixing, the higher the low-pass frequency limit of the mounting. This article specifically focuses on adhesive mounting of accelerometers, which includes a great number of different products from the temporary adhesives like the beeswax to the permanent ones like cyanoacrylate polymers. Among the variety of commercial adhesives, three specific products have been experimentally compared to assess their transmissivity and the results are reported in this article. A two-component methylmethacrylate (HBM X60), a modified silane (Terostat 737), and a cyanoacrylate (Loctite 454) adhesive have been used to join two aluminum bases, one connected to an accelerometer and the other to the head of electromagnetic shaker. A design of experiment (DOE) approach was used to test the system at several levels of amplitude and frequency of the external sinusoidal excitation supplied by the shaker.
