Vibration Equipment

The Structural Vibration Laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art vibration testing equipment including:

  • A Scanning Laser Doppler Vibrometer (Polytec PSV 400), allowing sampling rates up to 1 MHz.
  • National Instrument CompactDAQ acquisition system with modules to measure strains and ICP sensors. A campus wide license for LabView provides the acquisition software. Modal View toolkit allows modal analysis of measured results.
  • Miniaturized accelerometers, strain gages, load cells.
  • Modal shaker.
  • Mid-range acoustic speakers for excitations up to 20kHz.
