Simulator of Multilayer Acoustic Materials
NOVA software allows you to optimize the sound absorption and transmission loss of several material configurations in a very short time due to its user-friendly interface and extremely fast calculation time. No more expensive and time-consuming tests!
Through the numerical modeling of these materials, different concept proposals can be made with the aim of increasing performance for a given application with respect to cost, weight, efficiency, size as well as other essential criteria.
