Engineering Service: Vibration Analysis, Simulation, Consultancy / (c) Laschet Consulting

Overview of Engineering Services

Vibration Analysis, Simulation, Consultancy, Customer Training + Seminars

The ENGINEERING activities as supported by Laschet Consulting cover extensive CAE ana­lyses (CAE = Com­pu­ter Aided Engineer­ing) to provide calcu­lations and analyses in order to determine the dyna­mic beha­vior of drive systems in rotating machinery and vehicles. These CAE services are supported by suitable simu­lation soft­ware tools („Virtual Engineer­ing“).

Our major CAE analyses are dedicated to the studies of torsional vibrations in drive systems or to the analysis of lateral + flexural vibrations. Such jobs can be done very quickly in smaller projects but also as part of com­prehensive studies within R&D or virtual engineer­ing projects – always according to customer require­ments:

  • CAE model generation of complete drive­lines (generating digital computer models supported by power­ful soft­ware tools: ARLA-SIMUL, ITI-SIM, SimulationX, ARMD)
  • CAE analysis (simulation) including evaluations
  • working out alternative system con­figurations (drive­line matching)
  • trouble shooting (in case of failures), root cause analysis (RCA), support of machine diagnosis
  • summary of improve­ment activities, para­meter studies, optimi­zations
  • inter­pretation, overall evaluation, and documen­tation of the results
    including testing methods, and measure­ment results as part of the final evaluation
  • technical report in English (or German) language (also as a brief report)
  • further customer consult­ing (on site or via online meetings or video conferences supported by WebEx)
  • optionally: customized trainings, or general training courses or seminars


Application Areas

Mechanical + Plant Engineering, Automotive, Shipbuilding, Aviation + Aerospace

Based on considerable experiences for more than 35 years many jobs could be realized with great success as part of a virtual product develop­ment process. See the following reference examples taken from the drive tech­nology:

  • reciprocating compressors, screw compressors, pumps, generator drive systems, venti­lators (fan drives)
  • turbomachinery, extrusion machines
  • cement mills, crushing machines, rolling mills
  • drivelines of vehicles (cars, trucks, special vehicles), or ships including engines or electric motors (com­plete power­trains optionally with auxiliary drives)
  • NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) studies in drivelines of cars, trucks, other vehicles
  • drive systems in the aviation and aerospace industry
  • any drivelines with motors, engines, couplings, clutches, transmissions, gear stages, univer­sal shafts, etc.
  • configuration of drive elements within test rigs (test stands), correlation with test signals
  • driveline matching: test rig vs. driveline in reality

A list of customer references is available on request.


Engineering Service as a Teamwork

In many CAE projects a professional team­work of specialists is crucial. That is why Laschet Consulting cooperates with external engineering & measure­ment partners; go to our special site “Cooperation Partner” for more details.
