### SVI Analysis Method with Detailed Procedure | Finite Element Analysis

SVI is one of the familiar method of mode shape computation (Eigen Value calculation) in Finite Element Analysis.
Apart from Lancoz and Guyan's method, SVI method is widely used for modal analysis in FEA application.

This thread will help to understand what are all the steps that takes place behind the solver, when SVI method is used.
