Modal analysis is a particular form of vibration diagnosis. This method does not examine individual components of a machine but the machine as a whole. The aim is to determine the overall vibration behaviour of the machine. A model of the machine is created on the computer and a large number of measurement points are defined. The machine is then specifically excited to vibration using an impulse hammer. Based on parallel measurement of the excitation and resulting machine vibrations at the various measurement points, a vibration model of the machine can be determined by the computer and presented in three dimensions.
Modal analysis has a wide variety of possible applications:
