Hello all. I am looking for some tips on determining the natural frequency of a structure supporting a vibrating screen during coastdown. My understanding is that I can measure the machine speed over the duration while simultaneously measuring the displacements of the structure. I currently have a Dewesoft 4 channel data collector and a tri-axis accelerometer. I am planning on using the tach on the 4th channel of the data collector. I'm new to this type of measurement so I may not be providing enough info or even asking the right questions. Is there a better way to do what I'm trying to accomplish? what tools would be easiest to do a coastdown analysis in your experience?
