Assessment

Many parameters of the object that needs to be suspended are taken into account when developing the most optimal solution. During the assessment phase of Loggers’ SDM information is gathered as a starting point for further analysis. This information includes technical specifications of the dredger and the results of vibration measurements.

Some important parameters are:

  • Weight
  • Dimensions
  • Center of Gravity
  • Disturbance frequencies
  • Sea-going conditions
  • External forces on the object (e.g. wind)

Resonance can result in malfunctioning and even serious damage. The specialists of the Center of Excellence manage this risk by keeping all natural frequencies far away from the disturbance frequencies.
