AV Ingenieros is an SME based in Barcelona specialised in the field of acoustics and vibration emerging as a spin-off company from the cooperation between the Technical University of Catalonia – Barcelona Tech, and the private company VIBCON.
AV Ingenieros divides its activity into four main areas:
- Transportation noise and vibration impact assessment studies
- Environmental noise management
- Industrial noise and vibration
- Building noise and vibrations
AV Ingenieros core business is ground borne vibration prediction projects which allows, among others, to define the railway superstructure or the vibration abatement solutions to apply to minimise vibration levels into nearby buildings.
To carry out these projects, AV Ingenieros combines the use of corroborated and improved semi-empirical own-developed models with FEM 2,5D and FEM 3D numerical models. Models are always validated with in situ experimental measurements.
Since its establishment in late 2008, AV Ingenieros’ has bet for innovation as a basis of its activity. As a result of this strategy, three research and innovation projects has been completed, one of them funded by the European Commission through LIFE+ instrument.
