There will be demonstrations and case studies relating to stationary noise sources and transient events, reviews of advanced techniques, including 360° field of view measurements (Spherical Beamforming) and mapping of non-planar objects (Conformal Mapping).

The second session will be In-vehicle Automotive SQ with NVH Simulator; a focus on the role of Sound Quality in Automotive industry, binaural recording techniques, mapping of roads and test tracks, sound Quality measurements, use of vehicle simulators in NVH process, interactive use of NVH data and jury testing.

The final session is Analysis Techniques with PULSE. This will be a general sound and vibration analysis workshop, focusing on the latest data analysis tools and applications used by technicians today, including hardware and software tools for easier, quicker and more precise measurements. The session teacher will identify what’s new in data acquisition hardware, demonstrate unique Bruel & Kjaer measurement technologies, such as Dyn-X and REq-X, plug and play transducers and introduce the company’s newest hardware technologies, including PULSE LAN-XI.
