Accurate and intuitive measurements and analysis

Improving sound & vibration engineering

VIBES brings promising, innovative methods for sound & vibration research & development to the automotive and high tech industries, resulting in reliable, time-efficient and cost-effective measurements. Our proven VIBES Methodology leads to accurate source characterizations, prevents (human) error and allows for a modular way-of-working towards full vehicle predictions. These advanced checks and calculations are now accessible in real-time, while performing the measurement, with our DIRAC software.

We are leading experts in:

Test-based Modeling
Test-based Modeling
Obtaining FRF models from test, compatible with FE models
Dynamic Substructuring
Dynamic Substructuring
Combining multiple component FRF models to build an entire system
Source Characterization
Source Characterization
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
