Hello all,

This question is for the ones of you who are more experienced in XFlow.

I am using XFlow to do an acoustics simulation on a vending machine. I got two fans for cooling on the bottom side and two small motors on top for which I have values for noise.
The fans are set to enforced movement and they rotate at a given speed therefore, moving air and generating noise. So I get some results though..but incomplete.

I am not finding anything on how to put some noise values on the small motors. Is there a way you could define, let's say a point that actually generates noise, increasing sound pressure levels?

How else would I approach this?
Please let me know if you need more information or if I was not clear enough. Looking forward to your replies.

Thank you,
