Accurate and intuitive measurements and analysis

Improving sound & vibration engineering

VIBES brings promising, innovative methods for sound & vibration testing to the automotive and (high) tech industries.
Our solutions improve the reliability, time-efficiency and cost-effectiveness of sound & vibration research & development. Our proven VIBES Methodology results in accurate source characterizations, prevents (human) error and allows for a modular way-of-working towards full vehicle predictions. The advanced checks and calculations that are the basis of our methodology are now accessible in real-time, while performing the measurement, with our DIRAC software.

We are leading experts in:

Test-based modeling

Blocked force descriptions for active components

Our unique approach

We combine test-based data with simulated data through our unique Virtual Point Transformation. This allows for a hybrid modeling approach where our clients can cherry-pick the best modeling approach on a case-by-case basis.

We use measurements to characterize dynamic properties of components, subsystems or full vehicles. Proper dynamic characterizations are the basis of sound & vibration engineering.

A modular way of working – our unique VIBES Methodology.

  • Test-based models are coupled to simulated models through virtual points
  • The models are a property of the test object only, independent of the testbench or environment
  • Models are valid in large frequency range – up to 3000Hz
  • Only a single measurement is needed per component vs. a measurement for each component-vehicle configuration
