Structural Dynamics Toolbox


Page 1 of 4



For analysis, the SDT provides a general finite element architecture that can be used in all fields (multi-physics modeling) and a range of specialized solvers to create models used to study vibration problems.

For test, all the tools for experimental modal analysis and related operations are provided in an open and programmable environment.

Key Features for Analysis

  General 3-D Finite Element Modelling with an open architecture allowing easy user development of new multi-physics elements, ...
  Key compiled functions allow treatment of large models.
  .m files for efficient implementation of major solutions (non-linear statics and time integration, eigenvalue, ...)
  Graphical User Interface (GUI) visualization tools let you build on the MATLAB/SDT ease of use to pre-/post-process computations done using SDT or other codes
  Model reduction,substructuring and system model building
  Physical parametrization of FEM models for optimization or updating
  Data structures fully compatible with popular FEM codes (NASTRAN, ANSYS, ABAQUS, ...)

Key Features for Tests

  GUI based visualization and processing of frequency and time data
  Frequency domain identification
  Animation of test and FEM results , ODS, ...
  Topology correlation and test/analysis correlation criteria
  Import/export routines for popular test and FEM model formats
  Specialized routines to go from test and finite element models to state-space and other system dynamics formats
