First-time-right sound and vibration engineering

new game plan

Today’s consumer and professional demands drive the design complexity of cars, airplanes, ships and many other mechanical equipment. One important aspect of product design is sound and vibration engineering. Because of the many technical challenges, this is usually performed in the latest phase of product development. This leads to iterative design cycles involving many physical prototypes, which can become costly and time consuming.

In other words: product managers and engineers need a new game plan.

Bringing CAE and testing together

Using experimental Dynamic Substructuring technology, one is able to smartly combine simulations (CAE) and structural dynamic / acoustic measurement data. Engineers are able use powerful hybrid modelling and simulation strategies with significant improvement in quality of sound and vibration prediction of complex products.

Late-phase sound and vibration troubleshooting is avoided, fewer iterative design cycles are needed which results in saving time and other resources.
