Conventional modal testing is practically impossible in challenging operating conditions.
VTT and ABB developed FE-models which took into account the most significant factors and phenomena affecting on
the vibration behaviour of the Azipod thruster in real operation conditions. The results were verified by full-scale experiments.
- Faster R&D process with development and verification of new modelling methods
- Elimination of prototype and pilot stages
- Reduction in validation resources
- Immediately revealed trivial design errors
