When a product is integrated into an environment or a machine, the dimensioning of the structure is essential. To do this, it is necessary to know the forces coming from the product. Vibratec can help you define your product’s force torsor (forces and torques). Dynamic force measurements can be carried out in 2 ways: directly or indirectly.
Direct dynamic force measurement
These measurements can be carried out using a force table equipped with 3-axis piezoelectric force cells, to measure the dynamic component of the force and define the force torsor at a given point.
Indirect dynamic force measurement
Dynamic forces can also be determined using the structure’s response matrix and the inverse matrix of the transfer function. These two values can be determined using measurements in operation with a mesh of accelerometers and at rest with an instrumented impact hammer.
