Experimental modal test of a structure of the ISS (International Space Station)

CEIT has an important experience in the theoretical and experimental modal analysis (EMA) of components with the following characteristics:

  • Theoretical model by Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
  • Experimental test design: selection of interest shapes, excitation and response points, excitation methods, structure conditions, etc..
  • Experimental modal testing: impact testing, shaker testing.
  • Modal parameters identification
  • Test-theoretical correlation
  • Theoretical model update

Project examples:

  • Experimental Modal Analysis of a wind turbine blade.
  • Dynamic model for seismic study of instrument transformers.
