Objectives and Approach

The objective of this project was to develop a technology platform for structural dynamic analysis that integrates fatigue analysis and acoustic radiation prediction with vibration analysis.

The prototype of the platform software is targeted at engineering workstations, using advanced user interfaces and data management techniques, with interfaces to existing CAD and FEM systems and to experimental analysis programs for vibration analysis data. The integrated platform allows interaction between designers and experimenters at an early stage in the design process. The project aimed to achieve:

Developments have been validated in conjunction with major manufacturers in the automotive industry.

Exploitation

The methodology and tools developed will have important applications in the automotive and aerospace industries and in the mechanical engineering industry in general. The following benefits are expected:

The results of the development will be made available as commercial products by the IT project partners.
