SOLIDWORKS Quick Tip - Natural Frequencies, Mode Shapes, and Vibration Tutorial

This is a short tutorial describing what are natural structure frequencies and mode shapes. You can run a frequency analysis to have the software find the natural frequencies, periods, associated shapes and relative deflections. The value to the designer is that you can alter structure characteristics to modify the frequencies and avoid resonance with motors and pumps.
