Acoustics Simulation

All product designers and engineers must consider the noise a product will generate as an increasingly important factor. This applies whether the product is designed to create noise, such as a hearing device or speaker, is intended to dampen noise such as a muffler, or has potential to create noise as an unexpected by-product through turbulence, friction or structural vibration.

Best-in-class companies are now bringing forward their assessment of a product’s acoustic performance, rather than run the risk of facing a costly build-and-test scenario later in the design stage. By utilising Ansys acoustics simulation techniques to analyse designs early in the design process with a virtual prototype, engineers can significantly reduce production lead times and avoid costly re-engineering processes.


With Ansys VRXPERIENCE Sound, you can listen to, analyze and design sound sources. Create immersive 3D soundscapes to enhance your product or your simulations based on recordings, CAE simulation outputs or your virtual reality (VR) environment.Acoustics analysis can be performed in several ways, either as a pure acoustic problem, or as a coupled vibro acoustic problem.

Sound Analysis and Sound Quality
VRXPERIENCE Sound offers a powerful suite of analysis tools focusing on sound perception. An intuitive graphic display of sounds and a one-click magnification control feature help create the perfect sound signature for your product. With the software, you can also set up psychoacoustic tests based on a listener panel, and obtain statistics about the real perception of your sounds. As a result, you can achieve and deliver the best sound.

You can also evaluate and improve the way a sound is perceived, by using tools based on time-frequency representations.

3D-Sound Playback Systems
VRXPERIENCE Sound uses state-of-the-art 3D recording and playback techniques that create high-precision reproductions of 3D sounds and original timbres in a predefined space. You will discover how sound perception maximizes immersion in a specific real or virtual place.

Interactive Audio Simulators
VRXPERIENCE Sound systems are specially designed to equip your simulators and VR platforms. Available for cars, aircraft and trains, they create realistic, interactive 3D soundscapes using real-time audio sound generation, which can be integrated with your simulators and platforms.

Engine Sound Design
VRXPERIENCE Sound provides the Active Sound Design (ASD) comprehensive solution for engine sound enhancement (ESE) for electric vehicles (EVs) and internal combustion engine (ICE) cars.

Listen to Mechanical and Fluids Simulations
With VRXPERIENCE Sound, you can listen to Ansys Mechanical, Ansys Fluent, Ansys LS-DYNA and Ansys Motion simulations, modify sounds to evaluate effects of level changes on components, and run a study on sound quality. To learn more about VREXPERIENCE Sound read our recent blog post here.

Analyzes the EV engine to separate electric noise from electromagnetic noise. Automotive manufacturers can quickly test design modifications that will alter the overall engine sound.

Perfectly reproduces the sound environment within cockpits and cabins, optimizing them for comfort and safety. It also isolates and modifies sounds that contribute to takeoff and flyover noise.

Calculates psychoacoustic indicators and thresholds for the train. Suppliers may then integrate those thresholds into their standards for parts and components.

Excels in detecting sound sources. Shape each sound based on jury listening tests to get the best customer experience.
