Altair’s Squeak and Rattle Director enables expert and novice computer aided engineering (CAE) engineers to rapidly identify and eliminate a variety of sound, vibration, and perceived quality issues in products at an early design stage.
Users can easily analyze multiple loading scenarios – static, dynamic, thermal events or even a combination of them – then identify root causes through modal contribution studies and find robust design solutions through numerical optimization, all without the need for a physical prototype.
Squeak and Rattle Director is the only integrated platform which facilitate finite element (FE) model building, dynamic solvers, diagnostics, and FE-test correlation. All working concurrently.Learn More About SnRD
Altair’s Squeak and Rattle Director (SnRD) enables expert and novice computer aided engineering (CAE) engineers to rapidly identify and eliminate squeak and rattle in products at an early design stage. By utilizing a novel set of tools and methods in a streamlined, semi-automated process that is fully integrated in the Altair HyperWorks™ environment, SnRD simplifies otherwise complex and time-consuming tasks.
Improving the ESL using Complete Vehicle Correlation In the previous webinar, the development of an ESL has been shown based on a complete vehicle simulation. In order to validate this new approach, a comprehensive correlation work has been performed. Using the dynamic distortion in all closure body openings as correlation criteria offer a unique possibility to increase the understanding of the load from both the engine and the wheel suspension. This webinar presents this correlation where a test vehicle is driven on different test tracks both in reality and virtually. Presenter: Jens Weber | CAE Engineer, CEVT
Speaker design and analysis, especially for a more complex product, system, or component, often requires building multiple simulation models. The loudspeaker development process involves multi-physics and multiple sources in parallel, to multiple simulation runs for prototyping, testing, and validation. This results in separate models for nonlinear analysis of strength, thermal analysis and stiffness, noise, vibration, and acoustics. Even though each model isn’t always built from scratch, typically the use of different solvers for each attribute will require that models need to be converted from one solver format to another. This practice is not only time consuming but frequently error prone resulting in an inefficient use of engineering time.
Reducing the presence of interior Squeak and Rattle (S&R) noises has become an on-going trend within the Automotive and Aerospace communities. Read more to see how Ziegler's PEM database helps to identify eliminate this phenomena.
