What is the magnitude of the deflections from Vibration Analysis?

The displacements from Vibration analysis are not “real”. They are arbitrary. The displacements describe the shape of the mode, but this can have any amplitude and the amplitude is not known.
To derive a real amplitude, the energy input into a system must be
