EDITOR'S PICK OF THE WEEK
Full Frequency Noise and Vibration Simulation
DE Editor at Large Tony Lockwood discovered the importance of noise and vibration (or, rather, the importance to reduce them to an acceptable level) in a recent dishwasher shopping adventure. His reflections on ESI's VA One, a vibroacoustic analysis environment, is punctuated by the sound of a dishwasher in the back. Lockwood was impressed by, among other things, the product's modular nature.
