In this Issue:
1. Normal Mode Tuning
For the exacting modal test requirements of the aircraft and space industries
m+p international have implemented Normal Mode Tuning in the new SO Analyzer 4.1 software release.
This method uses multi-point sine excitation at a strategic choice of the exciter locations with force control and tuning of the sinusoidal inputs. The tuning objective is to excite a “pure normal mode” which means the modal frequency is strongly excited and not influenced by adjacent modes or repeated roots at an identical frequency. The method ensures the most accurate estimate of the normal mode frequency and related damping values and is not limited by FFT resolution issues. The real-time user interface shows progress towards the optimum normal mode frequency indicated by the MIF display and real-time mode shape analysis and includes Nyquist and Bode plots as the final high-resolution stepped sine sweep is completed.
The Mode Shape Validation Wizard with Circle Fit Editor is the ideal accompaniment to Normal Mode Tuning. In conjunction with the interactive mode shape animation it is perfectly suited for checking and optimizing each FRF measurement. The modern interactive multi-display implementation makes this traditional technique quick and easy to review and validate data across even high channel counts.

2. Leading International Test House Chooses VibPilot
TÜV SÜD Product Service Ltd is part of the Certification Division of the TÜV SÜD Group, which employs over 15,000 people across 600 locations and is one of the leading technical service companies in the world. The test house group provides testing, certification, qualification, training and consultancy services to a range of industries covering the aerospace, defense, medical & health, radio & telecoms, rail, trade, electronics & consumer sectors. It is recognized for independently testing and certifying conformance to a wide variety of international standards and regulations and holds over 100 accreditations and approvals.
TÜV SÜD Product Service Ltd has some of the most comprehensively equipped, accredited facilities in Europe. Environmental testing services include EMC, shock, vibration, climatic and mechanical testing. The vibration and shock test laboratory based in Fareham/UK is among the most extensive in Europe. It has a range of hydraulic and electromagnetic shakers covering a frequency range of 1 Hz to 3 kHz. Unique features include the large shakers set into the floor which reduces set-up time and provides a safer working environment. The interchangeable slip tables are capable of up to 159 kN, some with a displacement of up to 100 mm. In addition, there are several shock machines, the largest having a table size of 2.1 m x 1.5 m.
Any work going through the vibration and shock test laboratory of TÜV SÜD Product Service Ltd will use vibration control and data acquisition systems from m+p international. Five VibPilot measurement front-ends with 16 and 24 input channels each are available. These all-in-one devices support both m+p international's VibControl software for vibration and shock testing and the SO Analyzer software for multi-channel data acquisition and analysis.
With m+p international's products for vibration testing and data acquisition, the vibration and shock test laboratory of TÜV SÜD Product Service Ltd tests everything from mobile phones to large military equipment cabinets. Richard Thompson, the Environmental Test Manager, says, “m+p was selected because of the flexibility offered by the modular controllers, intuitive front-end and the excellent support received from m+p over recent years.”
