NVH, Frequency Domain, Fatigue

The objective of the training course is to introduce the frequency domain vibration, fatigue and acoustic features of LS-DYNA to users, and give a detailed look at the application of these features in vehicle NVH simulation.

This course is recommended for engineers who want to run NVH or other frequency domain vibra­tion, fatigue and acoustic simulation problems with LS-DYNA. This course is useful for engineers and researchers who are working in the area of vehicle NVH, aircraft/spacecraft vibro-acoustics, engine noise simulation, machine vibration testing and simulation, etc.
