Dynamic Structural Studies
Dynamic structural studies are usually made at one of two points in the equipment's life cycle: in the design phase, in order to validate the static and dynamic design, in production, when abnormal phenomena occur (cracks, severe vibrations, overheating, ruptures, etc.). These studies use measurement tools (measurement of specific frequencies, actual deformation, ODS - operating deflection shape) and simulation tools (finite element calculations).
Examples of industrial applications :
The installation calculations of new equipment include the dynamic calculation of the host structure and the study of vibrational impacts on the environment. Logically, it is followed by the dynamic acceptance of the system: analysis of excitation sources, qualification of the dynamic behaviour of the structure and comparison with the dynamic simulation.
Vibrations in piping:
- Forecast of vibrational behaviour of lines
- Risk assessment
- Solving problems of vibrating pipes
