Leuven, Belgium - February 21, 2007 - LMS, the engineering innovation company, today announced that EADS Corporate Research Center Germany (CRC-G) selected LMS Virtual.Lab Acoustics as one of their solutions to simulate the vibro-acoustic performance of aerospace systems. EADS is a global leader in aerospace, defense and related services. The EADS Group includes the aircraft manufacturer Airbus and the world's largest helicopter supplier Eurocopter. EADS deployed LMS Virtual.Lab Acoustics at its Corporate Research Center in Munich, Germany, for research purpose to optimize the vibro-acoustic performance of aircraft and spacecraft assemblies.
EADS CRC-G selected LMS Virtual.Lab Acoustics to perform simulations on the interior and exterior noise of new aircraft designs. Regulations for exterior noise and requirements for passenger comfort become continuously more stringent. EADS therefore optimizes acoustic performance needs early in the design process to avoid problems that require expensive changes in the late stages.
Being a long-time user of LMS SYSNOISE, the EADS research team valued the tight integration of the reliable SYSNOISE acoustics solver into LMS Virtual.Lab Acoustics, and the coverage of the complete simulation process in a single user environment. "Through our first experience with LMS Virtual.Lab Acoustics, we've benefited from specific steps of the optimized process flow of running the solver and post-processing the simulation results," commented Arno Röder, Manager Acoustics Technologies at EADS CRC-G. "Through the integration, Virtual.Lab Acoustics can free up valuable engineering time in our research group to interpret and analyze simulation results, and to refine and optimize our designs."
"The value based licensing system of LMS Virtual.Lab offers EADS CRC-G the flexibility to access multiple Virtual.Lab applications in addition to the core Acoustics solutions used by the research teams. EADS considers the Virtual.Lab value based licensing as an additional benefit. It allows us to easily cover the wide variety of simulation needs we encounter through the multitude of engineering and research projects, without having to reinvest in new software licenses," pointed out Clemens Moeser, Manager Simulation at EADS CRC-G.

Please join us for our Sixth Annual LMS North American Conference for Physical and Virtual Prototyping on March 20th, 2007 at the Somerset Inn, in Troy, Michigan. The Conference provides a forum for engineers to discuss key industry issues in relation to functional performance engineering for Noise, Vibration, Durability, and Design Optimization. Presentations will be given by industry experts on process and technology issues related to Test and CAE. Based on last years success, we will again host a Technology Open House on March 21st (same location) to provide open presentations and discussions of latest technologies, best practices, application use and training.
