Actran

Actran is a suite of general purpose CAD software for acoustical engineering developed by FFT (http://www.fft.be). It includes different modules for vibro-acoustics, aerodynamic noise sources, and flow acoustics. And it can be interfaced with a variety of meshing tools as well as pre- and post-processing tools. Its main applications include aircraft noise (including nacelle design), automotive engineering, helicopter turbine noise, air conditioning systems and ducted cooling systems (electronic devices). More information can be found at http://www.fft.be.
