Brussels, Belgium – July 28th, 2011
NUMECA International announces the acquisition of the acoustic simulation technology developed by Scientific Technical Software (STS, Varese, Italy). The acquisition targets VNoise, a scalable and complete suite for acoustic, aero-acoustic and vibro-acoustic analysis which includes the dedicated modules FWH Solver (Aero-acoustics of blades and fans), Flow-Noise (Flow generated noise) , VNoiseCluster (Parallel calculations), and a coupled BEM/FEM solver for acoustic propagation in uniform and non uniform flows.
“Thanks to this acquisition, NUMECA International becomes the one and only software provider in the world that offers a complete CFD and acoustic package. Furthermore, the combination with our innovative Non Linear Harmonics (NLH) technology provides unrivaled turn-around times for aero-acoustics simulations”, commented Pr. Charles Hirsch, President of NUMECA International.
“This acquisition will allow VNoise customers to access leading CFD technology and brings the benefits of NUMECA’s worldwide support and distributorship network”, said Paolo di Francescantonio, owner of Scientific Technical Software.
NUMECA and STS have established a close cooperation for further development of the VNoise platform and its integration into an unique integrated environment for CFD and aero-vibro-acoustics.
With 20 years of experience in the field of acoustics and vibrations, Scientific Technical Software’s mission is to provide its customers with state-of-the-art tools and services for noise and vibration analysis and testing. More information: www.sts-soft.com
