The AES Audio Product Education Institute (APEI) presents a new webinar series on the practice and benefits of simulation-driven audio architecture design by use of Digital Twins. In a new series of Modeling and Measurement online events, experts from COMSOL, JJR Acoustic, Klippel and Facebook, will discuss the role of Digital Twins and how advanced experimental transducer identification can be used to influence fundamental design considerations, even before the first prototype is built to proof a concept.

In audio product development, computer modeling and simulations are often used to troubleshoot and optimize acoustic performance once fundamental design assumptions have been defined. And yet, the largest gains in audio performance are consolidated in the very early architectural design phase, where the form factor, transducer choice, and placement dictates the overall acoustic product performance. What if "high fidelity" Digital Twins and advanced experimental transducer identification was used to influence the form factor, transducer type and tuning decisions even before the first prototype is built to proof a concept?

This webinar series focuses on how experimental transducer and virtual simulation-driven audio architecture explorations can work alongside, impacting the very early product development cross-functional discussions with PM (Program Management), PD (Product Development) and ID (Industrial Design). With expert contributions from JJR Acoustics, Klippel and Facebook, the webinar series will share methods and experiences on how to meet PMs desired audio user experience, PDs manufacturing strategy/story, and IDs aesthetics and function.
