In this webinar, subject-matter experts will discuss a technique called transfer path analysis (TPA), which is used to understand the noise and vibration performance of an assembled system. In this technique, experimental or simulation data, or a combination of both data types, is used to analyze the interactions between sources and subsystems to identify key pathways that control noise and vibration performance, and both acoustic and structural pathways can be meticulously documented. The recorded data can then be used to predict and evaluate the performance of pre-assembled systems to optimize the noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) performance of the entire system.

This webinar will introduce various topics of interest for anyone who wants to bring the benefits of TPA to their workflow:

  • An overview of TPA
  • The difference between mount and matrix force calculations
  • Acoustic quantity Q
  • Best practices for when to use blocked versus contact forces
  • The benefits of virtual prototype assembly
