Müller-BBM VibroAkustik Systeme of Germany is to partner with Dutch firm VIBES.technology to couple measured FRFs with simulated FRFs.
The partnership is intended to combine Müller-BBM VibroAkustik Systeme’s long-standing expertise in acquiring, analyzing and managing highly accurate, high-frequency physical data based on an open platform architecture with VIBES’s experience in substructuring technology.
“Currently, trends such as electrification, lightweight materials and the increasing number of vehicles and variants require a more modular approach in NVH engineering. This means simulation and testing will merge,” said Andreas Ansorge, CEO of Müller-BBM VibroAkustik Systeme.
Müller-BBM VibroAkustik Systeme provides the infrastructure for enabling seamless data access across multiple data sources and applications in a standardized, efficient way. Sustainable data management based on cloud technologies will also be possible and will enable the company to collaborate with technology leaders who can integrate high-quality physical data from its PAK device cloud or access recorded data from its PAK cloud.
“The vision of VIBES.technology is to bring promising, innovative methods for sound and vibration testing and simulation to the industry. Our ultimate goal is to significantly reduce the engineering time and effort required in sound and vibration design of vehicles – thus reducing overall development costs and time-to-market”, said Maarten van der Kooij, head of product development and one of the founders of VIBES.
