What Is A Hammer Test Or Hammer Impact Test?

This is often also known as Modal Testing. It is a method of testing that allows us to calculate the natural frequencies (modes), modal masses, modal damping ratios and mode shapes…

Using global variables, variable arithmetic & script fragments

One of Prosig’s engineers was recently creating a complex worksheet application that required some complicated arithmetic to be performed on values calculated in the worksheet. Worksheet (or global) variables are ideal for this. The Variable Mods DPU also has an expression evaluator built in. Consider the following worksheet that takes a Named Element from two signals and sums them. (more…)

Finding The Analysis That You Need

I’m sure many users will have been in this situation. You need an analysis function, you know it’s in DATS, but you can’t remember where. One of the major strengths of the DATS package is the depth of analysis functions it provides. Unfortunately, when you have a deadline and can’t find the function that you want that isn’t much help. But assistance is at hand… (more…)

Using Named Elements & Global Variables In Worksheets (Part 1)

This article is the first in a series that will introduce two very important facilities that can be used when creating DATS worksheets – Named Elements and Global Variables. It is perfectly possible to perform simple measurement and analysis with DATS without knowingly using either of them. However, knowing how they work and what they can do, will lead to much more efficient and flexible worksheets. The first subject we’ll look at is Named Elements. (more…)
