Ansys Acoustics Analysis
Acoustics Sound Design and Analysis

The sounds a product makes directly impact on user experiences. Sounds create strong emotions — positively or negatively — that reinforce brand identity. The difficulty of predicting acoustic results means that a single engineering mistake can prove costly to the final product, making Ansys Acoustics Analysis a powerful solution to ensure optimal acoustics and a successful end product.

Ansys Acoustics Analysis

High Level Features

Ansys Acoustics Analysis helps optimize sound from the first steps of product development. By applying this acoustic modeling software, you can have best-in-class tools at the ready to deliver top-quality user experiences that blend optimal functionality with pristine acoustics. By predicting the acoustic effects of a given product configuration at the earliest stage of design, you maximize your acoustic benefits while minimizing time, costs and rework. Test and validate the future soundscape of your product, such as electric vehicles, via simulation to ensure the desired acoustic experience.

What's New

The Ansys 2024 R1 release enables users to perform acoustic analyses better. See what’s new and improved for Ansys Sound:

  • Ansys Sound Analysis and Specification (SAS) is now available to all Mechanical Enterprise users. It allows them to perform acoustic analyses quickly, listen to the results of CAE NVH simulation, and create quieter or more pleasing sounds for their products.
  • Ansys Sound Data Processing Framework (DPF Sound) now includes the leading psychoacoustics indicators (loudness, tonality, sharpness, etc.), allowing users to use libraries for their development or scripts to estimate how humans perceive sound.
  • Ansys Sound Virtual Reality 3D Sound Player (VRS) now includes video and image display, providing users with enhanced immersion and realism. This enhancement allows users to play a 3D sound and display a synchronized video or image.

Discover multiple aspects of your products’ acoustic properties through in-depth testing, simulating and analyzing, all with the goal of improving a final design early in the development process.

Based on real test measurement or acoustic CAE simulation, listen and separate the sound sources, to then analyze the sound and improve the sound quality.

E-motor optimization means you can simulate the noise radiated by the e-motor and optimize designs according to acoustic KPI or sound quality criteria. 

Through vibro-acoustic and CFD simulations, you can listen to the sound of your virtual prototype and optimize the acoustic performance and sound quality at the beginning stages of the design process. 

Along with qualitative testing, acoustic design includes real-world perception—something Ansys evaluates with jury testing tool, with several psychoacoustic methods including statistical analysis.

Active Sound Design technologies can create an atmosphere to make the vehicle more alive, more attractive and safer thanks to audio feedback while driving. This is used for ICE engine cars and EV, including AVAS and ADAS sound. 

Combining simulation results, lab measurements recordings and acoustic transfer path, you can listen to your product and each of the components of your system in a fully realistic environment, like a driving or flight simulator.
