Acoustic Transparency: Optimize Systems for Sound Transmission
Presented by – Jeremy Charbonneau - Acoustic Application Engineer

The sources of noise may be airborne, or structure borne. As noise travels from its source, the noise will pass through multiple mediums or acoustic barriers, such as the walls or windows of an aircraft or vehicle. The design of these acoustic barriers plays a critical role in mitigating acoustic transparency, or the ability to isolate a fluid volume from external noise sources. This presentation highlights the strategies engineers employ to develop and implement acoustic treatments that serve as barriers. Multiple industry use cases are presented, and comments are made regarding how simulation tools are used to evaluate multiple designs and determine designs that optimally mitigate noise.

Reasons to Attend:

  • Understand how acoustic treatments, such as poroelastic materials, are used to influence acoustic transparency
  • Learn key concepts necessary to develop and analyze the acoustic performance of acoustic treatments
  • Watch how simulation technology is used to replicate experimental acoustic tests and perform acoustic analysis

Duct Acoustics: How Acoustic Waves are Generated, Propagated and Dissipated in Ducts?
Presented by – Bastien Ganty, Senior Application Engineer, Trainings Coordinator

Ducts are present in numerous industries, including automotive, heavy machinery, shipbuilding, consumer products, civil and aerospace. The acoustics of ducts is important in these industries. The size and shape of ducts is highly complex and makes traditional engineering approaches inadequate to evaluate the acoustic performance of ducts. Alternative engineering methods are necessary.

This presentation highlights the use of simulation technology to perform acoustic analysis of ducts. Multiple industry use cases are presented, and a demonstration is given of an acoustic simulation.

Reasons to Attend:

  • Get an overview of the physics behind acoustics and ducts
  • See how simulation technology is applicable not only to part level simulation but also system level simulation
  • Watch multiple use cases that highlight how simulation is used to predict transmission loss, obtain simulation results close to experimental test, and perform acoustic analysis on vehicle systems
