Maximize cabin comfort of heavy equipment with vibro-acoustics simulation and testing


Maximize cabin comfort of heavy equipment with vibro-acoustics simulation and testing

Complying with regulations for noise emission is the bare minimum requirement for heavy equipment manufacturers. Furthermore, operators’ safety and comfort are attributes that require attention to stay competitive.

As design complexity increases, manufacturers cannot rely on existing knowledge alone to address new challenges like electrification. Design complexity introduces new sources of noise and vibration, which in turn impact the machine development process. Collaboration between test and simulation departments is key to modeling the best outcome when designing heavy equipment.

Watch this webinar to learn the benefits of creating synergies between the testing and simulation departments for acoustics purposes. Our speakers will describe how a combination of smart solutions can lead to heavy equipment NVH and acoustics improvements, positively impact the operator’s comfort, and reduce the time to go through the development cycle.

You will learn how testing and simulation can help with vibro-acoustics issues impacting the cabin comfort, including:

  • Validation and correlation of simulation with test data
  • Defining relevant tests based on simulation
  • Designing sensitivity analysis and structural optimization on validated models
  • How to pin-point NVH issues early and reduction of physical prototype cost
