NVH & Frequency Domain Analysis in LS-DYNA - ONLINE TRAINING

The objective of the training course is to introduce the frequency domain vibration and acoustic
features of LS-DYNA to users, and give a detailed look at the application of these features in vehicle
NVH simulation.

This course is recommended for engineers who want to run NVH or other frequency domain vibration and acoustic simulation problems with LS-DYNA. This course is useful for engineers and
researchers who are working in the area of vehicle NVH, aircraft/spacecraft vibro-acoustics, engine
noise simulation, machine vibration testing and simulation, etc.
