Principles of Vibration Analysis: Normal Modes to PSD to Direct Transient

October 15, 2014

This technical seminar will provide the background theory on normal modes (i.e., eigenvalue, natural frequency) analysis and then walk through the process for performing a vibration analysis from normal modes to modal frequency (sine sweep) to PSD to Direct Transient analysis.


As we know, covering this whole topic would take more than just an hour. We have some suggested readings and can point you toward additional resources for those that want more theory.
