FROM CONCEPT TO VIRTUAL PROTOTYPE
KFB’s unique ability to leverage multiple disciplines let us address the critical elements of product development: the complex science of how things look, feel, handle, function and perform.
Whether an engine boom or a rolling noise, whether a generator or an electric engine buzz, we design, prototype and manufacture to deliver the best possible results to our clients.
KFB’s engineers deliver the ultimate driving experience by resolving complex noise and NVH issues.
KFB combines the focus and drive with the resources and R&D capabilities to resolve complex noise and vibration issues.
Providing the insight and expertise to make your products better.
Test Stand Development
Whether you need an update for an existing test-stand or something designed and built from the ground up.
We have one goal — improving the acoustic quality of our customers’ products.
KFB has developed three approaches to virtual prototyping, tailored to your needs.
Forging new approaches in acoustical optimization of the product
All of our work revolves around commitment to forge a new path toward a future with reduced noise and better acoustics. Through years, we have developed our own methodology aiming at delivering the best acoustical performance of the product.
In our work we distinguish 3 approaches:
- Simulations based on theoretical acoustic models,
- Tests based on prototypes,
- Simulations based on validated acoustic models.
The first approach allows us to quickly test a large number of acoustic variants. If the simulation accuracy required is not too high, we apply this method. However, if the requirements for prediction accuracy are much higher, it is preferable to use the second approach (prototype testing).
On-site measurements of the acoustic parameters of tested object always provide the most accurate data, but the number of variants that can be tested is limited due to technical requirements.
The third method presents a hybrid approach. We validate the theoretical acoustic model with measurements of tested object. In the next step, we create a virtual prototype. This combined method provides a large number of simulation variants and a greater accuracy compared to purely theoretical models.
