A numerical study of the effects of mechanical shock on Radio Frequency (RF) connectors is presented. The finite element method is used to analyze the mechanical shock responses of RF connectors. Three commonly used shock profiles, namely the rectangular, the triangular, and the half-sine profiles are considered. The effect of added mass as well as the direction of mechanical shock are also analyzed and discussed.
