Acoustic Finite Element Analysis
MSI performs acoustic finite element analysis of fluids for a variety of applications. For machinery, the resulting noise produced may be more problematic than the structural vibration. For piping systems, acoustic resonance of the fluid carried by the pipes can give rise to destructive structural stresses. MSI commonly employs FEA techniques to evaluate this behavior, then experiment with potential remedies until a suitable solution is found. This saves time and money by preventing unnecessary modifications through trial and error fixes.
