Structural Component Failures

Most structural failures are due to fatigue (cyclic stress) rather than static loading. A combination of several analysis methods aid in defining the "root cause" of a structural failure. A combination of several analysis methods will aid in defining the “root cause” of a structural failure.

ODS (Operating Deflection Shapes)

ODS testing is an extremely useful tool for determining the vibration “shape” of machines and structures. Vibration data is obtained at various points on the structures and the data are animated using the amplitude and phase relationships and the corresponding test points of a 3-D model.

Motion Amplification Video

EDI uses the IRIS MTM technology to produce visualizations of machinery, piping, and foundation vibration.    The videos are often sufficient to identify problems and recommend solutions.  In more complex situations, the information from MAV can be combined with ODS or other diagnostics to develop a complete understanding of a vibration problem.
