Modal Analysis and ODS Testing
“A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words”
Using animation techniques like Modal Analysis and Operating Deflection Shape (ODS) Analysis can be the key to understanding some of the complex, dynamic problems that plague operating machinery. Modal analysis helps visualize and better understand the root cause and determine the right fix for even the most difficult structural and mechanical problems.
For over 30 years, IVC Technologies has been providing condition based monitoring solutions to an array of industries across the country. We are the nation’s leading vibration analysis company with a large network of analysts ready to provide immediate service.

Benefits of Modal Analysis- ODS Testing
Modal analysis is the process of testing the components of machinery in order to better understand their natural behavior. It identifies the “mode” or “shape” of a component’s vibration at a given frequency. Simply “guessing” at which location to add a stiffener or mass to a system is a bad practice and doesn’t make economic sense due to the risks. More often than not, action based on “guesswork” results in increased machine vibration which can easily lead to catastrophic failures. Modal – ODS Testing can help eliminate the guesswork.
Accurate Modal Analysis and ODS Testing Services
Identifying the Modes within a system is critical to help determine the right corrective action required to eliminate excessive movement. By utilizing Modal Analysis, coupled with Operating Deflection Shape (ODS) and/or Finite Element Analysis (FEA), IVC Technologies can help you make sure the right modification is made to the system the first time.
