ADM720 - Frequency Domain Analysis using Adams/Vibration

Horizontal spacer

This course is intended for users who want to perform frequency-domain analysis. Using Adams/Vibration, you can study forced vibrations within the Adams model at isolated instances. The results from Adams/Vibration can be used in noise/vibration/harshness (NVH) studies.
