ENGDYN - noise and vibration

Noise and vibration

ENGDYN incorporates an advanced noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) post-processor, which allows the user to include the ENGDYN solution onto a three-dimensional finite element analysis (FEA) model of the powertrain or ancillary components in order to predict nodal vibrations in the structure. These vibrations can be used to predict stress due to the dynamic loading or using either the integrated Rayleigh or Boundary Element Method (BEM) acoustic solvers.

Specific noise and vibration applications

  • Vibration analysis
  • Vibrational stressing of powertrain components
  • Engine mount structural analysis
  • Radiated noise predictions

Key features

  • Integrated NVH post-processor
  • Automated analysis set up and control
  • Integrated FEA interface
  • Ability to work with any major commercial FE solver
  • Rayleigh and BEM solutions for radiated noise calculations
  • Post-processing
    • Structural attenuation
    • Order plots and campbell diagrams
    • 3D contour plots
    • Animation of modes and displacements
    • Sound intensity aid power
    • Sound pressure
