Objective

The EST project SIM-VIA 2 aims to provide training facilities and scientific supervision for young researches in the field of vibroacoustics for vehicles. The focus of SIM-VIA 2 is to motivate and encourage early stage researchers for scientific work in th is interdisciplinary field. The training facilities include latest facilities for computation and experimental testing. Specific workshops, courses and educational programmes are existing and planed respectively within this training centre. The aim is to t he predictive qualities of modells of different simulation techniques (FEM, SEA, BEM,..). Furthermore, complementary techniques should be introduced and improved (e.g. Wave Based Technique) as well as simulation modelling for new technologies (active layer s). Emphasis is placed upon the verification of the improved simulation models and enhanced techniques by advanced experimental methods. Hybrid and intergral techniques will be developed to enhance the predictive potential for industrial applications. SIM-VIA 2 is formed by a group of participating hosts, combining high education and research institutions as well as industrial enterprises in different countries of the EC including New Member States. Thus, the engineers will have the chance to participate in both the scientific reasearch work and the practical application of developed methods. They will profit from extended international knowledge in the field of simulation techniques and vibro-acoustic methodologies and will thus profit at the time they star t to work in the industry after their academic education. Furthermore, the industry will gain from the specific training of the young researchers for the requirements in the development of new and technologically improved products in the sensitive field of noise polution. The noise generated by vehicles (road, rail, airplanes) is one of the most pressing environmental issues, in particular for urban environmental issues, in particular for urban areas.
