Structural Integrity Assurance of Aerospace Vehicles - Modal Analysis – Tap Testing

Modal analysis consisted of experimental tap testing and finite element analysis correlation of the dynamic response. Tap tests were performed in a free-free condition by hanging the test articles from bungee cords. Three structural cases were investigated as follows:

  1. Non-tiled honeycomb panel.
  2. Tiled honeycomb panel.
