Forces acting on a component during application can have a negative effect on its functionality, productivity and service life. Therefore, the behavior of a component under load is usually analyzed during the design phase.
Dynamic loads are often particularly critical because they change over time, for example with respect to their direction of action or intensity. In addition, operation close to one’s own resonance can lead to a considerable increase in loads. Based on the results of a vibration analysis, both the component and the operating range can be optimized in this respect.
The aim of modal analysis is to identify critical operating areas and to optimize the component by adapting the structure (e.g. stiffening, increasing damping).
Method: Calculation and analysis of modal parameters (e.g. natural frequency, modal mass and damping) to evaluate and optimize the dynamic properties.
The aim of the operating vibration and frequency response analysis is to optimize the operating parameters (e.g. speed, run-up) in order to reduce the load on the component. In addition, vibration optimization can lead to better product quality and a longer service life.
Method: Calculation and analysis of component vibrations under typical load scenarios
Typical Analyses: Steady-state, transient analysis, shock analysis, stationary/harmonic calculation
