The subject area of acoustics (noise, vibration, harshness) is very important for the development of vehicles. Reasons are, on the one hand, predetermined exterior noise levels issued by the legislator for vehicle registration. Now that the respecitive guidelines have undergone revision, further reductions are pending.
On the other hand, vehicle buyers and owners also display growing demands in terms of vibration and sound comfort. Measuring up to these demands is further impeded by conflicting aims between acoustics and other criteria like the reduction of both CO2 and fuel consumption (efficient engines, downsizing, downspeeding, lightweight construction). Apart from that, the acoustician is faced with entirely different challenges in terms of electric and hybrid vehicles.
In order to find solutions for these tasks, acousticians require an informed understanding of the entire vehicle system which will only be achieved by means of considerable efforts by the vehicle manufacturers and the supplier industry.
This course is designed for engineers and technicians from the vehicle and supplier industry who want to learn from one of the most experienced specialists in five intensive course days.
