ESI Group, a leading innovator in Virtual Prototyping software and services for manufacturing industries, announces the release of VA One 2018. VA One is the only full-frequency, single-environment simulation software available for solving a wide range of noise and vibration design challenges in automotive, aerospace, marine and industrial applications. VA One seamlessly combines Finite Elements, Boundary Elements and Statistical Energy Analysis into one flexible modeling environment.
ESI VA One 2018 optimizes ongoing improvements in multi-core processing to provide significant improvements in overall model run time and overall performance speed, particularly in read, write, and solve steps. It also introduces unique capabilities for flexibly modeling complex loads and is able to robustly address the growing challenge faced by the automotive and aerospace industries to accurately predict wind and other noise due to turbulent flow effects. Excessive wind noise, which is generated by vehicles moving at high speed, is more than simply an acoustic annoyance to end users: excessive wind noise negatively impacts phone calls and applications using voice recognition inside the vehicle. Reducing wind noise as much as possible is thus crucial to allow optimal performance of various in-car communications.
