Installation guide

Thank you for purchasing Modal software.

Modal is a dedicated tool for processing a comprehensive modal analysis.

Start with the construction of the geometry and the acquisition of data in an optimized window. After these first steps, continue naturally by displaying quickly the Operating Deflection Shapes. Finally, with the provided powerful algorithms, modal parameters: natural frequencies, damping ratios, and mode shapes can be easily obtained from either modal data or operating data.

This "INSTALLATION GUIDE" will help you to install the Modal software.

For getting detailed information on the software, you can go and visit the Online Help embedded within the software. To start to use your new modal software, you can follow the instructions in the ’Getting Started’ document installed simultaneously to the software.
