“Enable organisations to validate, verify and integrate new products for optimal dynamic and acoustic performance.”
Incorporating the concepts of dynamics and acoustics into the product generation process is crucial for many corporations in order to continue innovating, remain competitive or cope with their customers’ requirements. To complete the design internally, companies face a significant costs in:
Dynamic architecture/design competence and dynamic modelling techniques.
Dynamic testing competence and specialised equipment for vibration and/or acoustic measurements.
The second point is the core part where XVA dynamics offers its services. By outsourcing partly or completely the testing process to us the total design cost is reduced (when compared to performing all in-house), the time to market is shorter (no need to build-up competence or arrange equipment) and the quality of the design is better (measurements performed with the right equipment and by experienced engineers).
Our main purpose is to enable organisations to validate, verify and integrate products for optimal dynamics and acoustic performance. Therefore, we work together with you as a partner and take ownership of the testing strategy, the execution and the analysis of the results. Check below for more details on the services we provide or contact us to discuss your specific needs.
Vibrations are a repetitive - rigid or flexible - motion of (solid) parts. Vibration measurements require motion sensors to measure acceleration, velocity and – less often – position at the point(s) of interest. Depending on the needs, additional (pressure, flow, flux, intensity, …) sensors to characterise the excitation source might also be needed.
Some of the most common experimental techniques that we can perform for you are listed below. Based on your input and needs we will combine/adapt them to define the optimal testing strategy.
Experimental Modal Analysis
Operational Deflection Shapes
Diagnostics & troubleshooting
Sound is a pressure waves generated by air particles vibrating around their equilibrium point. The (experimental) analysis of sound is extremely complex due to the many factors that play a role: the boundary conditions (free-field conditions, standing waves, reverberation, etc.), the sound source (multiple sound sources, background noise, distance from sound source, etc.), and the sound generation mechanism (sound radiation, impact of near-field effects, etc.) are few examples.
Depending on the exact needs for your application, one – or a combination – of the measurement techniques below will best represent the sound properties of your system:
Sound Power Measurement
Sound Intensity Mapping
Sound pressure measurements
Sound perception / psychoacoustics parameter estimation
Below you can find an overview of the equipment that we can provide for your project. The list gives only a flavour of our capabilities and is not exhaustive. Depending on your specific needs, the test specification will define the best measurement setup for optimal results at the most cost-effective way.
