Modal / ODS Analysis
RITEC carries out advanced vibration measurements to obtain dynamic characteristics of structures and/or machinery.
RITEC utilizes Cross-Channel Capabilities of Azima DLI Vibration Data Collectors to obtain measurements such as: Cross Spectrums, Frequency Response Functions (FRF), Transfer Functions, Transmissibility, and Coherence, at any number of measurement points (degrees of freedom).
RITEC uses these measurements to extract useful system characteristics such as: damping and natural frequencies.
In addition, RITEC can animate the system at any particular frequency, to obtain: an Operational Deflection Shape (ODS) at any frequency or a Mode Shape of a particular natural frequency.
Furthermore, RITEC can develop a Finite Element (FE) model of the system, thereby evaluating structural modification options to alleviate or mitigate the underlying causes of high vibration.
