Acoustic Simulation for Automotive and Heavy Equipment Industries

At present, noise quality is a crucial issue for automotive and heavy machinery manufacturers. In addition to the strict governmental regulations, it is important for automobiles to maintain the perception of quality in costumer’s mind. On the other hand, the sound of heavy machinery is a safety issue. Loud noises can make it harder for ...

Use of Multidiscipline Solutions to Improve Automotive Noise, Vibration and Harshness

Simulation software is being used extensively around the world due to their accuracy and cost-effectiveness. Instead of using different simulation tools for every different type of testing process, engineers can use multidiscipline tools to better improve NVH (noise, vibration, harshness). MD solution tools can be used for many different areas of testing, including:  Analysis of ...

Reducing Automotive Engine Noise with Multidiscipline Simulation

While companies can solve automotive engine noise problems by using engine mounts to stop vibration and the firewall to stop airborne noise, these solutions are not sustainable if one wishes to maintain quality. Therefore, car manufacturers taking advantage of finite element analysis (FEA) software to better understand noise and vibration. FEA can be used to ...

Assembly Modeling of Aerospace Structures Using Contact Simulation

Bolted or riveted airframe assemblies are typically modeled as continuous meshes. But advances in meshing and solver technology are changing the way we model these assembly structures. Today, continuous meshes are often replaced by individually meshed parts joined together by some type of connector or interaction definition. These individually meshed parts are typically joined together ...

Lightweight, High Performance Composites – Using FEA to Predict the Gradual Failure of Adhesives

Question: How can FEA be used to model the gradual failure of adhesives in composites? Answer: You use the cohesive zone modeling technique. Here is quick explanation of CZM from Andrew Main’s Use of Finite Element Analysis to Create Robust Composite Designs – Going Beyond First Ply Failure. Unlike virtual crack closure, cohesive zone modeling ...

Accelerate your FEA Performance

Imagine increasing the speed of your FEA runs just like you would improve the performance of your car by adding an additional part. GPU cards make accelerating your FEA runs possible. Simply install a proper GPU card, and go! MSC Software will be hosting a webinar titled Accelerate your High Performance Computing and will include ...
