Webinar: How to Apply Vibroacoustic Simulation During the Development of Products
Heavy equipment can make a lot of noise. Makers of heavy equipment, such as Caterpillar, strive to make quiet products.

Engineers can characterize the noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) coming from these beasts using simulations, which can then be used to optimize a design and limit the transmission path.

In this webinar, you will learn:
  • When to use simplified NVH models and when more detail is needed
  • How to balance a design for acoustics, vibrations, cost and mass
  • How to solve NVH problems with simulation technology

About the Speakers:

Dr. Ricardo de Alba Alvarez is a technical manager specializing in vibro-acoustics at ESI North America. Previously, he worked as a CAE and NVH engineer at GM.

Alvarez has over 15 years of engineering experience. He completed his PhD and Masters in vibration studies at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) from the University of Southampton.

David Copley is a senior engineering specialist specializing in global sound solutions at Caterpillar, Inc. After 22 years at Caterpillar, Copley’s engineering and simulation expertise has touched almost all of their products.

Copley has a BS in physics and MS in acoustical physics from Brigham Young University. He is also a certified member of the Institute of Noise Control Engineering (INCE), where he served on the Board of Directors. Finally, Copley is an active member in the Society of Automotive Engineers’ Acoustical Materials Committee.
