An overview of the development of techniques for Noise Source Identification on practical noise sources – Keith Vickers, Bruel & Kjaer
Workshop/demonstration on Experimental Modal Analysis – Martin Cockrill, ASDEC
ASDEC will demonstrate a number of different techniques ranging from comparing types of excitation (impact hammer and Shaker excitation) and types of instrumentation (accelerometers and laser vibrometer). They will also demonstrate robotised data collection with their RoboVib System.
The Use Of Model Based Systems Engineering Tools For NVH Development – Siemens Simulation & Test, Peter Mas
In this session, through a series of examples and live demonstrations, the attendee will be introduced to the use of model based system simulation tools for NVH development. With case studies encompasses test, geometric and CAE data that are completed at both early and late stages of the development cycle, the attendee will see the benefit of MBSE tools for achieving optimal NVH through multi-attribute balancing.
