New Course in ARTeMIS This Fall

This 2-day course is for the new as well as experienced users who want to be updated on Operational Modal Analysis technology as well as the latest features of ARTeMIS Extractor 2011.

The course will be held on October 27 and 28, 2011 at Sana Rex Hotel in Lisboa, Portugal. There will be lunch and coffee breaks during the day and free WiFi internet access. The course instructor is Dr. Palle Andersen, CEO and senior developer of ARTeMIS Extractor. 

On day 1 you will get a comprehensive introduction to Operational Modal Analysis technology in general. During this introduction the differences to the well-known input/output modal analysis will be described. Also the procedures for acquiring high quality measurements will be discussed in details. The introduction is followed by a presentation of the user-friendly Frequency Domain Decomposition (FDD) technique, and we will analyze some example data as hands-on exercises. Finally, the two other FDD related techniques of ARTeMIS (Enhanced Frequency Domain Decomposition and Curve-fit Frequency Domain Decomposition) are introduced and we will continue with hands-on exercises using these techniques. The example data will both be from ambient excited structures as well as mechanical structures subjected to sinusoidal (harmonic) excitation.

On day 2 you will be introduced to Stochastic Subspace Identification (SSI) and all the latest features, such as the Crystal Clear SSI estimator, Automatic Mode Estimation,  and the latest technique for Merged Test Setups. Finally, the day ends with an introduction to the ARTeMIS Testor software, where you will learn how to create test geometries graphically and how to upload measurements and perform DOF assignment.

You will get a binder with the course material as well as a 1-month free trial version of ARTeMIS Extractor Pro 2011, that we invite you to install on your own laptop for use during the hands-on exercises of the course.

Attending the course will cost 400 € per person and of course we give a 50% student discount.
