Shorten aircraft modal testing without compromising accuracy

Ground Vibration Testing

Ground vibration testing (GVT) is a major milestone in the aircraft certification process. The main purpose of the test is to obtain experimental vibration data for the entire aircraft structure so you can validate and improve its structural dynamic models. Among other things, these models are used to predict flutter behavior and plan safety critical flight tests. GVT is typically performed late in the development cycle, and due to the limited availability of the aircraft, there is pressure to get the test results as quickly as possible. Our integrated software and hardware solutions contain several technological advancements that help engineers perform GVT more efficiently without compromising the accuracy of the results. Being the result of more than 30 years of experience in the field of structural dynamics, this solution has proved to be extremely efficient in providing improved accuracy and insights as well as reducing the time needed for a GVT campaign from weeks to days on many recent commercial and military aircraft programs.
