Experimental Vibration, Modal, Acoustic

In addition to testing how reliable your product will endure vibration loads, DES can measure and analyze the vibration characteristics of your product.  This is important to study noise, comfort, performance, mode shapes, damping, and resonance frequencies.  Experimental results can be correlated with analytical FEA models.  Design changes can be optimized using FEA to reduce development costs.

Capabilities Include:

  • Hand Arm Vibration (HAV) Testing of hand held tools & equipment per ANSI S2.70 and ISO 5349
  • Octave analysis of vibration and sound data
  • Experimental modal testing & analysis
  • Correlation of experimental testing to FEA
