Vibration Analysis Consulting Services at Predictive Engineering
A quick graphical overview is presented of our +20 years in the idealization of structures for finite element analysis (FEA) vibration analysis. Our goal is to keep our clients’ structures from experiencing disastrous resonance during testing and in service. As part of our work, we have done User Guides on the main suite of linear dynamics from normal modes, modal frequency analysis (sine sweep), response spectrum analysis (seismic and shock) and PSD.
Besides linear dynamics, we have experience in nonlinear transient dynamics using LS-DYNA where the nonlinearity is low but the vibration response is deadly. Thru the years we have gained experience using a variety of specifications for wind turbines (IEC 61400), seismic analysis of nuclear waste storage vessels (ASCE 4-98, ASCE 7-02 or IBC) and general vibration analysis of electronic equipment and general structures using MIL-STD-810E, -810F, MIL-STD-167, RTCA DO-160F and UBC.
We don’t want to bore the reader, so only a subset of our work will be presented and then burned into a video for publication. What we hope that one will take away from reading this case study is that our experience has been tested and validated in hundreds of simulations and when you work with one of our engineers, you are leveraging hard-won industry experience that is uniquely qualified to ensure that your structure will only vibrate as you want it to vibrate.
