White Paper

Acoustic Emission Analysis and Optimization with XCARAT
Considering acoustic emission when designing a component under dynamic loads can help to reduce development time and improve design effectiveness. This white paper presents how XCARAT can be used to analyze and optimize components in terms of acoustic emission. The methodology implemented for this purpose is described in detail, and the available acoustic structural response for optimization is explained. A simple thin plate structure demonstrates the effectiveness of acoustic analysis and optimization. Thereby, the shape optimization method is used to find optimal bead structures, and the thickness optimization method is used to find suitable distributions of damping material layers.
