MSC Software 2012 Acoustic Seminars:



Please join us for one of our upcoming Acoustic Theory and Numerical Simulation Seminars with Dr. Jean-Louis Migeot, co-founder and CEO of Free Field Technologies, an MSC Software Company.

These one-day seminars will cover aero and vibro acoustic theory and an overview of the primary numerical methods for acoustic simulation including BEM, FEM, SEA and Ray Tracing.  They will include the most important acoustic concepts and the physics underlying the most commonly used software tools in acoustic engineering. The course material draws from Jean-Louis’ teaching experience as well as from the long list of acoustic engineering projects he conducted with his team over the last 20 years for a wide variety of industries.

The following topics will be discussed in these free one-day technical seminars:
1.  Introduction to Acoustics
2.  The Six Key Acoustic Phenomena
3.  Vibro-acoustics
4.  Aero-acoustics
5.  Numerical Methods in Acoustic 


Dr. Jean-Louis Migeot

Dr. Jean-Louis Migeot is the co-founder and CEO of Free Field Technologies, the acoustic CAE company that recently joined the MSC Software group. He has devoted his career to the numerical simulation of noise and vibration problems after earning his MS, MBA and PhD at the University of Brussels. He first joined Structural Dynamics Research Corporation, then was a co-founder of Numerical Integration Technologies, the original creator of SYSNOISE acoustic CAE software. In 1998 he co-founded Free Field Technologies, SA in Brussels, Belgium together with Jean-Pierre Coyette, where they created Actran acoustic CAE software and developed it for the past 13 years into the global technical leader for acoustic simulation.

Jean-Louis is also a professor of Acoustical Engineering at the University of Brussels. He has published numerous technical papers in journals and conference proceedings. He is currently a Vice-Director at the Belgian Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences.
