LMS (www.lmsintl.com), one of the leaders in simulation software, has donated software to support the research projects and educational objectives of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. LMS has been supporting the research efforts of the University of Kentucky’s Vibro-Acoustics Consortium for over 15 years.
The donated software includes Virtual.Lab for acoustic simulation needs as well as Imagine.Lab software, which consists of a full suite of tools for modeling hydraulic, pneumatic, electric and mechanical behavior. Because intelligent system integration is driving improved product performance and delivering innovative designs for a variety of industries, UK’s students will gain experience with the same software used by industry leaders to simulate internal combustion engines, transmissions, flight controls and building energy systems.
“The software will be of enormous benefit to our students in their capstone design projects and other coursework,” said Vibro-Acoustics Consortium director and associate professor David Herrin.
The Vibro-Acoustics Consortium consists of 20 companies who are dedicated to using vibro-acoustic simulation to improve their products.
