The Advanced Structural Dynamics Evaluation Centre (ASDEC) is UK’s first commercial 3D laser measurement & modal analysis centre. Reducing vibration is the aim of design engineers across multiple industries, a goal often obstructed by the difficulty of obtaining good measures of vibration as it happens.
The newest and most effective way of measuring vibration is now laser Doppler vibrometry (LDV). This depends on very accurate measurement of the deflection of laser beams as they strike a vibrating object. The reflected laser reveals the deflection of the target.
ASDEC’s facility is located at the MIRA Technology Park site near Nuneaton. We are situated in the ‘Engineering Heartland’ of the UK.
- Rapid – Many readings can be taken per second
- Complex structures can be easily measured, with fine detail of vibration within them
- Small and large structures (up to the size of a whole car) can be measured
- Can measure any material
