BK Connect products and applications are user-centric, modular and form the foundation for your sound and vibration analysis platform. Each core application can function as a stand-alone tool, performing basic tasks or, when combined with other applications, as a custom set of tools that ensures highly efficient workflows from test design to the final report.
These applications and options provide tools for the different phases of sound and vibration testing projects – from standard tests through to complex troubleshooting, data management and reporting.
MEASUREMENT SETUP AND DATA RECORDING
The ability to record time data is fundamental for data acquisition. To prepare for your test you may need to review historical data from earlier tests. When ready, the hardware setup allows you to configure your transducers.
DATA PROCESSING AND SIGNAL ANALYSIS
At the heart of any data processing system are the many types of signal analysis available which allow you to solve simple or complex problems. Whatever the task, BK Connect has the analysis calculations you need.
Structural Dynamics allows you to observe, analyse and document the dynamic behaviour of structures using a single software platform covering setup, measurements, analysis and test-FEA integration.
OPERATING DEFLECTING SHAPES (ODS) ANALYSIS AND MODAL TESTING
BK Connect supports time, spectral and run-up/down ODS analysis, as well as single or poly-reference hammer and shaker model testing. Accurate and reliable modal results are obtained even in the most demanding situations using a targeted set of best-in-class mode indicator functions, curve-fitters and analysis validation tools.
Correlation Analysis is an easy-to-use post-processing application that enables you to correlate two modal models whether they are finite element models or test models. Correlation Analysis and Structural Measurements constitutes an integrated system for test planning, modal measurements, modal analysis and model correlation.
SHOCK RESPONSE SPECTRUM ANALYSIS
A transient (shock) event, has the potential to damage components in a structural system. Just as with any motion input to a system, the response can be amplified by structural resonances, increasing the damage potential. All five SRS models mentioned in ISO 18431–4:2007 are implemented in the module.
Acoustic Signature starts from visualizing the sound field using Noise Source Identification to understand not only the Acoustic Level, but if the end user will like how the product sounds.
Acoustic Camera is a complete troubleshooting system for real‐time noise source identification (NSI) that can be used for both stationary and non‐stationary measurements. The Array post-processing suite includes beamforming and holography.
SOUND QUALITY METRICS
Sound quality is of ever-increasing importance for the total quality of a product. Traditional objective measuring and analysis methods such as A-weighted sound pressure and FFT analysis are not enough for analysing sound. In the end, only the human ear can tell the designer whether he is producing the right sound.
