Shaker testing is in many cases a "necessary evil" when trying to quantify real world stresses, long term durability, and shock survivability. To actually perform a shaker test can be time consuming, expensive, and when executed incorrectly, potentially dangerous. Enter the concept of Virtual Shaker Testing. Virtual Shaker Testing is a new approach to classic physical shaker testing that utilizes simulation to test a product in the digital domain. By virtual shake testing your products in a simulation, it is possible to measure strains and stresses on your product using any type of excitation, make fast changes to the structure digitally, and play "what if" games with the product before a prototype is even created. This approach can save time, money, and speed up design cycles. Join us for this informative seminar to learn more about what Virtual Shaker testing is, how a Virtual Shaker model is created, and see an example of Virtual Shaker testing applied to a satellite.
