What is Ground Vibration Analysis?

Applied Technical Services is a proud provider of ground vibration analysis services in a host of different industries. Our team will perform a detailed site survey of a location ahead of the installation of sensitive equipment.

Our findings will then be compared to the environmental specifications of the original equipment manufacturer, along with industry standard guidelines, to help eliminate potential issues that can result from natural challenges present in the area.

Factors That Influence Unwanted Vibrations

A huge number of different environmental properties can lead to unwanted vibrations, ultimately negatively affecting the operation of a sensitive piece of equipment. Any mechanical device that happens to be in motion can lead to unwanted vibrations due to mechanical failure, mechanical looseness, fluid-induced instabilities, imbalances in rotating parts and more.

The natural motion of engines, electric motors and other properties, if not properly accounted for at the design phase, can also lead to similar situations.

The Importance of Ground Vibration Analysis

Ground vibration analysis is hugely important in terms of the operation of sensitive equipment. A number of ground properties have a natural effect on vibration, from the stiffness of the floor system in place to qualities like damping and natural frequency and more. All of this can ultimately negatively affect the way a piece of sensitive equipment operates, at best providing something that isn't working the way it's supposed to and at worst creating a dangerous situation for the operator and everyone else in the area.

Ground vibration analysis allows highly qualified engineers to help engineer these solutions in such a way that the vibration variations are accounted for, eliminating problems and increasing workplace safety at the same time.
