Structural Dynamics Testing
Understand the structural behavior of physical structures with state-of-the-art structural dynamics testing solutions
Structures are test characterized for many different reasons using methods of varying sophistication and complexity. You can start by pinpointing and correcting a vibration problem by identifying structural resonances and dominant forcing mechanisms or by plotting the structural deformation pattern at a specific frequency. To fully understand structural behavior, you can turn to modal analysis to characterize measured force inputs. The modal models can be used to validate and update existing finite element models or used directly as the basis for design modification or multi-attribute studies.
LMS Test.Lab Structures provides you with a fully scalable solution for a wide variety of structural dynamics testing applications and differing levels of expertise. Structures can easily be expanded and tuned to your changing needs, fully protecting your testing system investment. Starting with impact testing, you can extend the solution with modal analysis, multiple input and multiple output (MIMO) testing or operational modal analysis capabilities. You can focus on identifying root causes of vibration problems and apply powerful analysis tools to explore the best solution for practically every structural weakness.
