EDC specialise in stress, vibration and noise analysis and measurements. Our vast experience and advanced analysis techniques ensures realistic results from both problem solving and certification measurements. EDC can assist manufacturers and operators with verification of designs, problem solving and certification of performance from both static and dynamic viewpoints.
