Modal Analysis

Register now

Modal analysis is considered to be the single most important application for understanding and optimizing the inherent structural properties and behavior of structures. This 3-day course provides the participants with an in-depth knowledge of classical modal analysis based on hammer and shaker excitation of the structure. The course focuses on the underlying theory and the practical know-how required for successful implementation. It presents the most up-to-date measurement and analysis techniques as well as describes how to link testing with simulation to improve both test and simulation results. There will be demonstrations and hands-on exercises on real structures during the course.


  • To give an understanding of modal analysis, its possibilities and limitations.
  • To teach how to perform proper mobility measurements as the basis for modal analysis.
  • To explain and demonstrate how to plan and execute a complete modal test and to perform modal analysis on real structures.
  • To discuss and demonstrate how to validate the acquired modal model, how to correlate models and to give an introduction to simulation tools.

Basic knowledge of and experience in vibration analysis, mathematics and physics. Basic knowledge of signal analysis and processing recommended.

Test engineers, test specialists and analysts who either perform or request modal analysis to be performed during, for example, design verification, trouble-shooting, quality control and benchmarking.
