Webinar: Predicting Industrial Fan Noise and Propagation in Heavy Vehicles

As emission legislation becomes ever more stringent, the pressure on cooling systems has increased exponentially. Engineers often attempt to fix the problem by increasing the flow rates of cooling fans, often in resulting in excessive noise created by these fans. This  increase in noise levels is unpleasant both the occupants of vehicles and communities around the vehicles or generator sets.

Exa has a unique solution to fan noise issues. By directly simulating the noise generated by these fans in situ, Exa can simulate the noise and help the engineer reduce the noise signatures coming from the whole package. This has distinct advantages over the traditional CFD methods of looking at pure component level simulation. In this free 40 minute webinar we will show how Exa’s tools can optimise your WHOLE PACKAGE using real world examples and validation exercises.

Exa Corporation’s solutions for engineering simulation are based on an extended Lattice Boltzmann method. This inherently transient, numerically stable and patented technology enables Exa to predict fluid flow with a level of accuracy and insight into flow behaviour better than physical testing or traditional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) methods. This represents REAL WORLD systems saving on production and prototyping.

Join us in this webinar series where we will demonstrate how we do things differently, both in the way we do business and the tools we use.
