Actran is a finite element software for vibro-acoustic and aero-acoustic simulation. This class will cover the pre-processing and post-processing capability including acoustic meshing from existing structural meshes. Basic topics in acoustics covering the simulations in frequency domain as well as in time domain will be presented. The course will include both presentations from the instructor as well as hands-on exercises.
Engineering degree with knowledge of Acoustics and/or Vibrations
Course topics will include the use of Graphics user interface, Actran VI and using the Actran acoustics module. Details regarding modelling sound propagation in both confined environments as well as exterior radiation will be presented.
This is a hands-on class with exercises to illustrate the concepts of each section. Upon completing this class, students will be capable of adapting the knowledge gained in the training to develop methods and processes enabling the design low noise products.
