Vibro-Acoustic Analysis

Vibro-Acoustic Analysis

This option post-processes and displays Acoustic Intensity, Sound Pressure Level (SPL), and Sound Power. It allows you to analyze vibro-acoustic problems by displaying both vibration and acoustic data together in the same animated picture.   Acoustic Intensity is measured with a two to four channel acquisition probe and a multi-channel acquisition system. Each Intensity measurement is made either normal to an acoustic grid or surface, or in three directions (tri-axially) at each grid point.   Sound Power flow through an acoustic surface is calculated from Intensity data. Sound power is displayed on the acoustic surface using a color map.   Interactive Source Ranking allows you to graphically document the breakdown of acoustic energy measured from various components of a test article. Acoustic sources can be ranked according to their percentage of the total power, in dB units or watts.
