Modal Analysis

Modal analysis is the fundamental dynamic analysis type, providing the natural frequencies at which a structure will resonate. These natural frequencies are of paramount importance in various engineering fields. Suspensions are usually tuned to have different natural frequencies for passenger cars and race cars. Structural engineers need to calculate the natural frequency of buildings so that the seismic waves produced during earthquakes do not match the natural frequencies of the buildings. This course focuses on the basic theories and concepts, as well as the application of modal analysis in engineering.
