Structural Testing 360° - Structural Testing. Physical + Virtual = Virtuoso!

Optimizing Prototyping for Structural Analysis and Component Testing

Bringing FEM and testing together. Here is how to do it. Illustrated by an example.

The synergy between real and virtual tests is a key topic for innovative design and the optimization of resources right through to a short time to market. A digital twin allows virtual testing and thus provides huge potential savings. To what extent is it still necessary here to experimentally verify the simulation data?

What you may expect

  • What should be considered when looking at the various approaches to dynamic component testing
    - In the time domain: Stress analysis using strain gauges and optical strain gauges
    - In the frequency domain: Modal analysis using impact hammers and acceleration sensors
    - Virtual testing: Comparison of the measured data with the FEM model and model refinement
  • Explanations, tips & tricks, and a live demo
  • Delimitation of methods against each other

Is it enough to use numerical tools in structural analysis and the optimization of component geometry in line with the loads applied?

To answer this question, we use a specific application to characterize a component’s dynamic behavior in three different ways:

  • Strain measurement,
  • Modal analysis,
  • Virtual testing.

We will demonstrate the correct application of the procedures live and identify typical sources of error. From the installation of the sensors through the application of test loads using an impact hammer and a shaker. Various post-processing tools will be applied to the test data to define the Frequency Response Function (FRF), the basic element of Experimental Modal Analysis (EMA) and Operating Deflection Shape (ODS) analysis. This provides us insight into the MAC matrix, which is a unique and powerful validation tool.

Discuss with us the advantages and disadvantages of the different methods of consolidating your numerical model.

What you’ll take with you     

At the end of the day, you will have a sense of when it is advisable to validate your numerical data by testing and measuring and what is the most efficient test method for your application

Understanding and using digital data acquisition systems

Digital measuring amplifiers and data acquisition systems offer a wide range of settings and configuration options. The event explains in a clear manner the essential parameters and relationships, such as sample rate, filter frequency, carrier frequency, etc.

Each set of topics is followed up by hands-on training to consolidate the lessons learned.

The event day starts at 9:00 am and finishes at 4:30 pm.

 

Target group:

Users from the fields of trial, testing, and production.
Basic theoretical knowledge of test and measurement, though useful, is not a prerequisite.
