Simcenter 3D is a comprehensive, fully-integrated CAE solution for complex, multidisciplinary product performance engineering. Simcenter 3D for acoustics simulation involves:

  • Geometry preparation

  • Meshing and assembly

  • Preprocessing

  • Solving

  • Postprocessing

An integrated solution for informed decisions early in the design stage

Simcenter offers interior and exterior acoustic simulation within an integrated solution that helps you make informed decisions during the early design stages so you can optimize your product’s acoustic performance. 

This solution guide outlines solutions to make informed decisions during the early design stages to optimize a product’s acoustic performance. 

Acoustic simulation benefits a variety of industries

A quiet product is often perceived as having a higher quality. As a result, companies are adopting efficient processes and tools to optimize the noise performance of their products.

Simcenter 3D offers benefits to a variety of industries:

  • Aerospace and defense: Aviation engineers can predict cabin noise on the fuselage or by aero-acoustic noise coming from the environmental control system (ECS)

  • Automotive and transportation: Noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) engineers receive insight into acoustic, vibro-acoustics and aero-acoustic noise contributions

  • Consumer goods: High-quality speakers, silent vacuum cleaners and washing machines are built using advanced noise engineering and sound characterization features

  • Industrial machinery: Machine-radiated noise can be evaluated and the effect of encapsulations with sound treatments can be captured

  • Marine: Acoustic features can be used to study complex underwater radiation
