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 ...
