Blocked Forces using Virtual Points: what is it all about?
This technology – Blocked forces and moments at 6-DoF virtual points – helps to identify and avoid typical problems regarding completeness of the interface. This approach can be applied to any force characterization, improving the general usefulness of the found forces and leading to perfect predictions of in-vehicle contributions.
Dynamic Substructuring allows to model each component using the most quality- and cost-effective technique and “substructure” their dynamics together. With Dynamic Substructuring, insights on full-vehicle NVH performance can be obtained much earlier, as already-available components can be measured and substructured to FE models of the rest of the vehicle.
VIBES.technology has played a pioneering role in the field of blocked force source characterization, both in method development (many published papers) as well as bringing the technology to the market.
