Experimental Modal Analysis

Combine modal testing and analysis tools to validate your 3D simulation models, perform vibration response calculations, or complete a root cause and damage detection analysis. Our solutions integrate over 40 years of engineering experience to help you easily perform a full experimental modal analysis.

Modal Testing

Obtaining accurate frequency response functions (FRF) is the starting point of trustworthy NVH testing and analysis, in any situation such as performing a modal analysis, troubleshooting vibration issues or running a transfer path analysis. Rely on our dedicated solutions for impact hammer and shaker testing, as well as on our wide selection of excitation profiles, to execute your testing scenarios and obtain top-quality data quickly and efficiently.

Modal Parameter Identification

One of the main objectives of modal analysis is to identify natural frequencies, modal damping and mode shapes of structures or objects, obtained from measured data. Rely on our state-of-the-art modal parameter identification algorithms to easily obtain accurate, reliable and repeatable modal estimates from frequency response functions (FRF) or operational data

Vibration Troubleshooting

Streamline your process of analyzing and solving vibration issues. Simcenter Testing Solutions help you quickly pinpoint the root causes of vibration issues and offer powerful analysis tools to remedy structural weaknesses. From basic tools to advanced solutions, our Simcenter offering is always adapted to your needs.

Transfer Path Analysis

In order to fully understand the vibration behavior of a system, engineers perform a transfer path analysis (TPA) that helps them identify and assess structure-borne and airborne energy transfer routes, from the excitation source to a given receiver location.

Transfer path analysis quantifies the various sources and their paths and figures out which ones contribute the most to the noise issues and which ones cancel each other out. From the quantified and modeled sources and paths, it becomes a relatively straightforward design task to optimize vibro-acoustic and the NVH performance of the system.
