Use of new lightweight materials impacts acoustic levels. Accurately identifying the acoustic properties of materials and components, such as mufflers, doors and panels, helps maintain comfort levels and reduce noise, while keeping material costs under control. Measure sound absorption and sound transmission loss with our tube or our room-based acoustic material testing solutions and efficiently characterize your product.
Use digital image correlation (DIC) to precisely determine mechanical material properties for any type of material, from concrete to polymers, from metals to composite under load. Extract truly quantitative information on the strain field under load from experimental data. Our seamless integration of the Virtual Fields Method (VFM) identifies material properties from full-field deformation measurements much faster and much more accurately than any inverse model updating technique can do.
