SOURCE is the result of years of method and software development in the field of Transfer Path Analysis (TPA), blocked forces and substructuring. As it operates natively with ATFX data, it can be used in virtually any engineering environment alongside the standard data acquisition systems and software solutions in the NVH industry (Siemens LMS, Head Acoustics, Bruel & Kjaer and Müller-BBM). Results and insights generated by SOURCE fit perfectly in current CAE simulations, allowing to solve critical NVH aspects in an early phase of product development.
Source Characterization (SC) and Transfer Path Analysis (TPA) are two highly popular topics in sound & vibration engineering, as they enable a modular NVH approach. Accurate characterization of active sources, typically by Blocked Forces, requires a clear and robust workflow with quality checks at each and every step.
