Welcome to our latest Newsletter about the Vibration & Environmental test world in addition to the latest information from m+p international.
The m+p international Newsletter is circulated exclusively to test engineers and managers involved in vibration test, data acquisition and signal analysis and hopes to bring you some useful technical snippets gleaned from around the world and from around the test and measurement industry. We always look forward to your inputs, send us your views to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The renowned Tsinghua University in Beijing successfully uses m+p international’s SO Analyzer impact testing software to perform modal tests on helicopter rotor blades. These tests are done to study the coupled/uncoupled behavior of the blade which is exposed to wave, shimmy and torsional modes.
The acquired modal parameters (natural frequency, mass and damping) enable optimization of the blade design such that it cannot resonate with the air harmonic excitation. The test results can also be used as input for flutter evaluation.
Read more about our impact testing software and our other products for sophisticated structural testing and full modal analysis in our 2-page Application Note “Modal Testing on Helicopter Rotors”.
2. Full-Featured Data Acquisition with Wide Variety of Hardware Technology
Are you searching for a full-featured data acquisition system that allows for faster setup and simplified operation?
Then benefit from the outstanding performance and functionality of our turnkey Coda solution. Coda is our easy-to-use data acquisition system with extensive built-in features and tools, thus offering a functionality that was previously available only in custom packages. It processes virtually every physical quantity.
Choose your measurement hardware from different hardware platforms: Coda supports a wide range of powerful LXIbus, VXIbus and USB-based instruments from manufacturers such as VTI Instruments, Bustec and Agilent. Without any programming required. From a few dozen to thousands of channels.
Coda is perfectly suited for:
For more information on our full-featured, flexible Coda system, please contact your m+p representative at (+1) 973 239 3005 or email@example.com.
3. Simulating Challenging Noise and Vibration Environments
Successful product development requires simulation of complex noise and vibration environments in which the product must operate. Engineering groups perform these simulations to validate new products as well as to validate performance and optimize existing designs.
The article “Simulating Challenging Operational Environments” written by Tim Copeland, m+p international’s Central Region Manager, discusses simulation in space launch, vibration, and acoustic environments. Each of these environments is described along with the techniques used to create the simulation.
4. m+p international at ESTECH 2010
We would like to invite you to the ESTECH 2010, the annual technical meeting of the IEST.
You can see the latest revision 4.0 of our SO Analyzer for dynamic signal analysis, the compact 4-32 channel VibPilot instrument for vibration control and N&V analysis, our VibControl products for advanced vibration testing as well as our digital acoustic control system.
We would be pleased to see you there.
Well, that brings to a close this edition of the m+p international Newsletter. If there are items of info you would like to see here or if you have useful tips for the rest of the environmental test world, then please send us your pointers and we'll include them in the next edition.
Please forward this Newsletter to your colleagues if you have found it of interest, spread the word...
m+p international listens to customers...
