Classic product qualification requires prototypes, implying advanced design and costly testing. Digital simulation allows numerous tests on virtual prototypes.

Finite element modeling covers a wide variety of dynamic analyses: solid, cinematic and acoustic. Updating FEM models with experimental results makes it possible to tune them in order to perform digital testing using realistic excitations.


Understand the relevance of simulation before testing
Define the types of measurements to perform for FEM updating
Identify the methods & tools to tune FEM
Differentiate methods & tools to improve FEM

Participant profile
Engineers & technicians in charge of FE model validation
R&D or NVH engineers

Working knowledge of structural dynamics
Working understanding of FE calculation

Program (based on case studies, alternating theory & application exercises)
The updating / tuning process
Measurements: theoretical basis, tools, set-up, acquisition of Frequency Response Functions (FRF), modal identification
Computation: assumptions, resolution, FE modeling, computation in the design process
FE model correlation & updating: tools & their limits, using a modal basis, using FRF results
Collaborative work with an industrial model

Evaluation in the form of a quiz
