Ship Vibration Apparatus

Ship Vibration Apparatus

Product Details

Technical Description
The HM 159.11 is used to investigate the dynamic behaviour of a ship structure. It therefore allows the first steps in the area of experimental vibration analysis or modal analysis. Experimental vibration analysis is an indispensible element of modern shipbuilding development activity. This unit allows the natural frequencies and modes of the model ship to be measured and recorded. The simple, stylised ship form simplifies the mathematical resolution of the problem. The model ship and an electrodynamic exciter are attached to a height adjustable cross beam. The beam has a high natural frequency that doesn't interfere with the measurements. A function generator creates different exciter signals: sinusoidal, triangular and rectangular signals. The frequency, amplitude and offset are adjustable. An acceleration sensor at various points measures the response of the model to the vibrations generated.
For experiments in water, a tank is required (not included).

Learning Objectives / Experiments
- Measurement and recording of natural frequencies and modes of the model ship
- Influence of discrete additional masses or ballast  on natural frequency and mode (ballast and additional masses not included)
- Vibration behaviour of model in air
- Vibration behaviour of floating model (possible with additional tank)
- Comparison of theory (approximation formula for determination of 1st bending natural frequency) and practice (measured natural frequency)

* Investigation of the vibration behaviour of the model ship in air and in water (with additional tank)
* Simple ship form simplifies mathematical calculations
* Different exciter signals possible
* Selectable exciter and measuring points
