Use of modal testing and structural dynamic modification techniques for prediction of the modal parameters of a PC board with a surface-mount component is described. Experimentally determined natural frequencies and mode shapes of a PC board with and without an added component are presented. Several simple dynamic models of the component are evaluated. Results obtained indicate that the component can sometimes be modeled as a point mass.
