All-New NVH Simulator 2019.0 Released

Improved efficiency and ease-of-use in building and using NVH virtual prototypes.

Naerum, Denmark, December 19, 2019 --( Brüel & Kjær Sound & Vibration Measurement A/S, the world’s leading supplier of advanced technology for measuring and managing the quality of sound and vibration, has released an update to its NVH Simulator software, the only comprehensive, interactive, experiential NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) virtual prototyping software of its kind in the market.

The new NVH Simulator 2019.0 is the most significant and sweeping update ever, including a completely new, modern interface and dozens of new features and efficiency improvements to enable faster model builds and easier usage.

With the release, users will experience easier and faster creation of NVH virtual prototypes from any combination of multiple types of CAE (computer-aided engineering) data and test-based measurement data from multiple sources. This release also brings the capability of software-in-the-loop (SIL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) interfacing.

The software interface has been enhanced with drag-and-drop model creation, all new displays, simplified controls and expanded data review and visualisation tools, which guarantee a smooth and efficient workflow.

The NVH Simulator 2019.0 software is the foundation for the driver-in-the-loop Desktop NVH Simulator, Full-vehicle NVH Simulator, On-road Vehicle Simulator and Exterior Sound Simulator.

Sound and vibration, or NVH, are amongst the most important elements vehicle manufacturers use to convey character, refinement and a sense of quality to customers. The NVH Simulator software enables automakers to create and evaluate virtual NVH prototypes, saving millions of euros on every vehicle programme and shaving months off development time. Automotive engineers, managers and executives can drive and interact with these virtual prototypes just like a real car, understand the sound and vibration characteristics of the vehicle long before physical parts are available - and make design decisions with high confidence.
