Getting started: structural dynamics
In order to be up running with your structural dynamics trial license in the shortest possible time, how-to and teaser videos as well as example files are available on this page. Example files for PULSE Operational Modal Analysis and PULSE Structural Health Monitoring are available in the installation. A link is shown when you open the software.

PULSE Teaser Videos
Teaser - Operational Modal Analysis
Teaser - Structural Health Monitoring
Time ODS Analysis
ODS as a function of time on a small plate structure with 9 nodes. The plate has been excited by transients using finger tapping.
Spectral ODS Analysis
ODS analysis at specific frequencies on a small plate structure with 9 nodes. The plate has been excited by an engine running at approx. 100 Hz (6k RPM) with a number of dominant harmonic components.
Modal analysis on a brake disc. Frequency Response Functions measured using roving hammer impacts in 60 nodes and three uniaxial reference accelerometers. The disc contains a number of repeated roots (multiple modes at the same frequency) due to its symmetrical properties.
Correlation analysis between a test and a FE modal model of an aluminium frame. The modal test was done using MIMO Analysis with 2 modal exciters and 40 triaxial accelerometers. The FE analysis was done using approx. 27k nodes and 27k elements.
