Free Field Technologies (FFT) is a leading global company focused on acoustic simulation and engineering services. Actran, FFT’s software product, leads numerous technology trends of vibro-acoustic and aero-acoustic modeling since 1998, when the company was founded by Prof. Jean-Pierre Coyette and Prof. Jean-Louis Migeot, two renowned pioneers in the domains of numerical acoustics.
FFT’s culture is deeply rooted in its tradition of research and emphasis on innovation, from which FFT has built its global brand. At FFT, a dedicated research team seeks constantly to solve the most cutting edge topics in the field of acoustics. The results of research benefit consequently FFT’s development team, committed to respond to today’s needs but also to help customers face tomorrow’s challenges of acoustic modeling.
Today, Actran is chosen by its clients for both its powerful general purpose simulation features (Actran Acoustics, Vibro-Acoustics and Aero-Acoustics modules) and its unique capabilities to address to specific industrial needs (Actran TM & Actran DGM for aircraft engine noises, Actran for Nastran for NVH issues of trimmed vehicle bodies).
From its five offices around the world, FFT’s engineering teams proudly serve more than 300 clients in the Automotive, Aerospace, Shipbuilding, Home Appliance and Heavy Equipment industries as well as in the Educational and Research sectors.
