Bringing Simulation Models to Life with Ansys Sound

Listen to, analyze, and design simulation data


Training Basic

Discover the quality of the sound generated by your virtual products and learn how to assess this in terms of psychoacoustic criteria. This training is offered as a 1-day course.

1 day


Software used
Ansys Sound

  • Making simulation results audible
  • Isolating noise sources and understanding their impact on the overall sound produced
  • Understanding the psychoacoustic parameters relating to perception of sound signals
  • Sound design: designing the sound produced by your products


Don't want to let yourself in for a surprise but would rather hear whatever noise is generated by your product even before the first prototype has been built? During this course you will learn how to use Ansys Sound to make the sound generated by your products audible, and how to investigate and design these sounds all within the confines of the simulation process.

This course provides you with a simple introduction to the subject of acoustics. You will be familiarized with the most important concepts of engineering acoustics and psychoacoustics and be given wide-ranging opportunities to analyze, compare, and assess acoustic signals. You will quickly recognize correlations and get to know ways of creating the perfect sound signature using Ansys Sound.

The course is aimed at users of numerical simulation working in the fields of structural mechanics, fluid dynamics, and electromagnetics who want to produce better simulation results by using new methods of sound analysis and sound design. In addition, this course is ideal for career changers and those interested in acoustic simulation, as basic acoustic concepts are both taught and actually made audible through the use of VR techniques (VRXPERIENCE).

Do you have questions on the training?

When will I receive the final confirmation for my training booking?

Straight after you sign up, an automatic confirmation of receipt will be sent to the email addresses you provided. Once you have successfully verified the data you provided, you will receive your personalized sign-up confirmation, containing further information on course fees, the billing address, etc., by email within two to three working days.  

As soon as the minimum number of attendees has been reached, you will receive a final training confirmation containing further information. If you have booked an on-site training, we recommend that you wait until you have received this final confirmation before booking your travel and accommodation.

If the minimum number of attendees is not reached, we reserve the right to cancel the training seven days before it is due to start at the latest. We are happy to inform you on changing your booking to an alternative date. Please note that we accept no liability for hotel or travel bookings that attendees have already made.

When is the sign-up deadline for a training?

Training places will generally be allocated based on the order in which attendees sign up. For this reason, we always recommend booking for your desired date as early as possible.

As long as a coures still has free places, it can be booked.

At what time do the training courses begin and end?

Usually the training courses start at 9:00 am and end at 5:00 pm of the respective local time. The actual course times will be stated in the booking confirmation. Please note that, depending on the training host, there may be a possible time shift between your and the provider's local time. Therefore all local times are provided with the valid time shift to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
