LMS signs contract for acoustic simulation tech

27 March 2008



LMS International has signed a contract with EADS and IMACS to integrate next-generation acoustic simulation technologies in LMS Virtual.Lab.

Under this agreement, LMS, EADS and IMACS will work together to integrate next-generation acoustic simulation technology based on multipole Boundary Element Methods (BEM) into LMS Virtual.Lab Acoustics. Multipole BEM technology extends simulation capabilities to higher frequency ranges. Thanks to parallel computing processes, multipole BEM also permits efficient and extensive in-depth acoustic analysis on detailed vehicle, aircraft, train or ship models.

LMS Virtual.Lab Acoustics is the LMS dedicated simulation solution that predicts the sound or the radiated noise from mechanical products. Prior to its partnership with LMS, EADS Innovation Works cooperated closely with several leading industrial partners like Airbus and PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN to develop and validate these new technologies. EADS also performed research with IMACS, a French research and technology provider in applied mathematics and scientific computing. IMACS will cooperate with LMS and EADS to provide further support and enhancements for the Multipole BEM acoustic simulation technology.
