ARTeMIS Modal - Validation
In ARTeMIS Modal
estimated modes can be validated by comparing modal results from the different
estimation techniques used for the same project. Results of different projects
can also be compared, allowing an older analysis of a structure to be compared
with a new analysis. External results may also be imported using Universal File
Format, allowing e.g. numerical modes of a Finite Element model to be compared
with experimentally obtained modes.
Major validation features are:
Overlaid animation of mode
Difference animation of mode shapes.
Side-by-side and Top-Bottom animation
of mode shapes.
3D and table read-out of the Modal
Assurance Criterion (MAC).
Mode shape Complexity Diagram.
Frequency versus Damping Diagram, with
optional uncertainty ellipsoids in case of SSI-UPCX.
