EXPERIMENTAL MODAL ANALYSIS

Experimental Modal Analysis-EMA consists of measurements making it possible to determine the natural vibration response of equipment &/or structures. It is an essential part of vibration diagnosis or troubleshooting. This technique also provides information to enable Finite Element Model tuning.
