O’Donnell Consulting Engineers performed a vibration analysis on the framework supporting the Hubble Space Telescope.
Combined analyses and tests showed that conditions were due to second order shortening of the transverse bracing members not found by conventional computer analysis. The vibration problems were then solved using lateral restraints on the transverse members.


We perform engineering design, analysis and troubleshooting for clients in industries including manufacturing and aerospace.
