Operating Deflection Shape (ODS) Characterization - MSI


To measure the operating deflection shape, the system must be run at steady state conditions for an extended period of time, typically one to several hours depending on the complexity and size of the system. Depending on the type of machinery involved, this often means constant speed, power, flow, pressure, etc.

Is it a Mode Shape or an Operating Deflection Shape? -


The subject of mode shapes versus operating deflection shapes has certainly been written about before. In fact, a previous Sound and Vibration magazine article [1] covered them quite extensively. I recommend that you read that article, because it provides valuable insight and contains a number of examples.
