Physical Testing

Our skilled engineers diagnose machinery faults, support failure investigations, and validate modeling parameters with testing.

For over 30 years, the SimuTech Group has combined experimental and simulation techniques to validate finite element models and update modeling parameters such as loads, material properties, damping, and boundary conditions with real data.

Blade Frequency

Ensure the blade’s natural frequencies are within specifications.

Campbell Testing

Measure natural frequencies and mode shapes of rotating turbine blade rows.

Moment Weighing

Locate the center of gravity to optimize blade loading sequence.

Modal Testing

Determine the natural frequencies, mode shapes, and damping ratios.

Strain Gage Measurements

Measure static strain due to relatively constant loads.

Ground Vibration and RAP Testing

Modal test techniques specifically for aircraft and spacecraft.

Torsional Vibration Measurements

Determine the natural frequencies and mode shapes of a rotor train.

Vibration Diagnostics

Identify the root cause of noise and vibration problems in machinery.

Wind Turbine Testing

From power curve measurements to power performance testing, we use the most reliable test installation techniques.
