Example files

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
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

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.
