2. Modal test tutorial
An experimental modal analysis project can be decomposed in following steps
- before the test, preparation and design (see section 2.2)
- acquisition of test data, import into the SDT, direct exploitation of measurements (visualization, operational deflection shapes, ...) (see section 2.1)
- identification of modal properties from test data (see section 2.3)
- handling of MIMO tests and other model transformations (output of identified models to state-space, normal mode, ... formats, taking reciprocity into account, ...) (see section 2.4)
Further steps (test/analysis correlation, shape expansion, structural dynamics modification) are discussed in chapter section 3.
