Simcenter helps you minimize noise or optimize sound quality in designs by simulating interior and exterior acoustic radiation. Simcenter 3D’s technologies for acoustics include:
- Finite Element Acoustics
- Boundary Element Acoustics
- Acoustics Modeling
Minimize Noise and Optimize Sound Quality
Are your customers expecting quieter products? Are competitors gaining ground by using sound quality as a differentiator? Will tighter noise regulations impact your product sales? Would you like to decrease the time spent on predicting sound fields or shave off weeks on complex jobs like engine run-ups?
In the past, parametric analysis and design refinement was simply not feasible because of cost and time constraints. The only option was to apply expensive techniques late in the development stage at the expense of design flexibility.
Acoustics analysis using Simcenter 3D can help you conquer these challenges. Simcenter 3D offers interior and exterior acoustic analysis within an integrated solution that helps you make informed decisions during the early design stages so you can optimize your product’s acoustic performance. Simcenter 3D’s unified and scalable modeling environment combined with efficient solvers and easy-to-interpret visualization capabilities enable you to quickly gain insight into the acoustic performance of your product.
Finite Element Acoustics
Use the efficiency of the finite element method (FEM) to simulate interior or exterior acoustics performance. Simcenter 3D supports the FEM acoustics solution offered in the NX Nastran finite element solver.
Boundary Element Acoustics
Often used for exterior acoustics problems, the boundary element method (BEM) is ideal for problems involving very complex geometry that may be a challenge to model for the FEM method. Simcenter 3D supports the boundary element method for acoustics for both efficient modeling and solving.
Shorten model preparation time and enhance productivity with custom modeling tools specifically aimed at speeding interior and exterior acoustics simulation processes. Using unique capabilities such as surface wrapping for fast fluid domain creation and the ability to quickly create a convex mesh, you can conquer complex geometry and start your acoustics analysis sooner.
