An experimental modal analysis is the process to identify structure's dynamic characteristics. For investigating vibrational characteristics of cylindrical shell with multiple supports, modal testing is performed using impact exciting method. The frequency response function(FRF) measurements are also made on the experimental model within the frequency range from 0 to 4kHz. Modal parameters are identified from resonant peaks in the FRF’s and animated deformation patterns associated with each of the resonances are shown on a computer screen. The experimental results are compared with analytical and FEA results.
