High performance computational environment for vibro-acoustic optimization

Objective

The project aims to bring together major computer-aided engineering suppliers and automotive manufacturers to develop a high-performance and high-productivity framework for noise and vibration analysis, specifically for vibro-acoustic optimisation.

In current practice, several hours of computation on a multi-processor system are needed to analyse a single configuration only. Stricter environmental regulations for external noise and increased customer expectations for both noise and vibration levels are forcing leading automotive companies to improve not only their design methodologies but also the supporting computational environments. The full benefit of vibro-acoustic optimisation tools will only be realised if their performance is dramatically increased. This is essential if the product refinement and optimisation phase is to match the demands imposed on development and engineering by competition and stringent time-to-market targets. This project further addresses issues extremely important for improving the productivity of the overall vibro-acoustic optimisation process by tackling the major issues of data flow and meshing.
