In the effort to solve vibration and noise problems in today's advanced machines, vehicles and structures, experimental modal analysis provides a means for modeling and modifying complicated dynamic behavior. This seminar series is intended to provide a thorough coverage of experimental techniques including measurement and digital signal processing concepts, structural dynamics theory, modal parameter estimation techniques, and application of frequency fresponse function and modal models suitable for practical vibration analysis problems.
Experimental techniques are an important tool in the product design and development cycle. Complex structural vibration problems can be identified and the results can be used to update analytical models. Modern digital systems provide the opportunity to incorporate measurement, analysis and data display into a format which gives engineers a tool to help solve problems including:
- Characterization of industrial process dynamics
- Automotive vibration and noise reduction
- Machine tool vibration and chatter analysis
- Aircraft flutter and ground vibration testing
- Interaction of structural vibration with control systems
- Vibration of buildings and large structures
- Analysis and trouble-shooting of rotating machinery
- Modeling dynamic behavior of space vehicles
For any practitioner, beginner to experienced, experimental or analytical, who wishes to review modal analysis theory and to understand the advantages and limitations of different experimental modal analysis techniques and modal parameter estimation algorithms.
