An accelerometer (or laser velocity transducer) is used to measure the response of the structure. By using an FFT analyzer, such as the PULSE™ system, the frequency response function and mode shapes of the test structure can then be derived.


  • Impact-force measurements on medium to very large structures
  • Measurement of frequency response functions using impact excitation techniques
  • As part of a dynamic structural testing system for modal analysis and prediction of structural response
