AVL List has joined the APA (Altair Partner Alliance) online software portal, adding the AVL Excite Acoustics and AVL Fire M packages to the APA portfolio.
Excite Acoustics applies the wave based technique (WBT) to calculate sound radiation emitted in free fields from vibrating structures, such as engines and power units in automobiles. The WBT acoustic models are substantially smaller than traditional models required for element-based methods, resulting in accurate results and high computational efficiency.
Acoustic meshes produced in Excite Acoustics are not frequency dependent, which enables users to utilize one model to achieve accurate results for the entire frequency range. The ability to use unmodified FE mesh to generate the acoustic models with a fully automated process makes for short analysis lead times and a more efficient process overall.
Fire M is a versatile, multi-domain simulation software which makes it possible to simultaneously compute non-reacting single phase flows, heat transfer and solid temperatures in systems without moving boundaries. The software is able to take models of all geometrical complexity levels and perform a fast and robust multiphysics analysis that even users who are not CFD experts can manage.
