DLR and ONERA select LMS as Ground Vibration Testing (GVT) partner

LMS has entered into an agreement with DLR (the German national research center for aeronautics and space, transportation and energy) and ONERA (the French national aerospace research center) to deliver their next-generation Ground Vibration Testing (GVT) systems.  

Dr. Jan Leuridan, Executive Vice-President and CTO, LMS International, "DLR and ONERA each ordered a 384-channel LMS Test.Lab GVT solution, which can be combined to form a 768-channel test system. Their decision confirms our position as the leading industrial partner for GVT testing. Both DLR and ONERA have developed their know-how for GVT testing over many years, and have a claim to fame for GVT testing in the aviation industry. We look forward to contributing to the advancement of the overall GVT methods and practices at these industry-leading organizations."   

Dr. Boeswald, Coordinator of DLR's Ground Vibration Test Facility, "After the Airbus A380 GVT, we decided to switch from LMS CADA-X modal analysis software to Windows-based LMS Test.Lab. To achieve that with our custom-built VXI data acquisition system, we had to link in-house data acquisition systems to the LMS Test.Lab PolyMAX modal analysis solution. For our next-generation solution, we decided to combine data acquisition and analysis in a common environment, and selected the LMS Test.Lab GVT solution as the platform to support the complete GVT process. We also wanted to maintain the possibility to combine our system with ONERA's system in France. Therefore, we needed to align our decisions and synchronize the evaluation effort."  

Pascal Lubrina, Manager of ONERA.'s Ground Vibration Test Facility, "LMS truly understood our particular situation and offered the solution we needed: a complete yet efficient GVT solution - easily customizable to fit our specific needs. LMS is an innovation-driven company, and LMS fully understands as well the need for high-level support of our research initiatives. By merging their leading GVT solution with our extensive 30 years of GVT experience, we will be able to take our GVT testing practices to the next level, and meet the ever more stringent deadlines of our customers," stated Mr. Lubrina.  

With important GVT campaigns planned for the 2010-2011 timeframe, ONERA and DLR investigated various industrial players. Following successful GVT benchmarks, DLR and ONERA selected LMS and decided to base their new GVT systems on the LMS Test.Lab GVT solution. This solution already covers all common GVT requirements, and could easily be configured to fully manage DLR and ONERA's specific GVT methods and practices. Additionally, the LMS Test.Lab GVT solution proved to have the necessary openness to integrate customized procedures to support DLR and ONERA's research initiatives.    

About the LMS Test.Lab GVT solution  

The LMS Test.Lab GVT solution uses the state-of-the-art LMS SCADAS III networked data acquisition system, in combination with the LMS Test.Lab data acquisition applications for MIMO FRF acquisition under random, swept and stepped sine excitation conditions and a direct modal acquisition module for normal modes tuning. Key to maximal productivity, all acquisition modules are seamlessly integrated with the world-class LMS Test.Lab modal analysis software, PolyMAX, and its wealth of modal validation capabilities.
