Simulation Accurately Predicts Noise Generated by Automotive Side Mirrors

An acoustic engineer is someone whose job is never done. Acoustic engineers in the automotive industry have achieved tremendous progress in recent years in making vehicle interiors quieter and more comfortable by reducing powertrain and road/tire noise. But as these major noise sources are reduced, other noises that were previously muffled have become much more ...

Adams Car Integration with Simulation Process and Data Management (SPDM)

To avoid iterative tests and multiple design changes to physical prototypes, engineers today use simulation software. Adams Car is a system dynamics solution that allows car manufacturers to build and test functional virtual prototypes of the complete vehicle under various road conditions and design changes. Adams Car’s architecture is based on databases of CDBs, which ...

Multidisciplinary Solutions For Brake Squeal

Although engineers have started to use simulation software to test brake squeal, its complex nature usually requires more than one different software and discipline. This makes it difficult to transfer data from one software to another and to work in different environments. To address complex brake squeal in one environment, multidisciplinary solutions (MD) can be used. ...

Composites in the Automotive Industry: Forum and Workshop October

Some of the most significant challenges facing the automotive industry include raw material cost, light-weighting and achieving mass production. These are direct consequences of environmental requirements becoming more rigorous as concern about carbon emissions grows. Moreover, the use of carbon fiber is an important part of the answer to these problems but brings on its own set of issues that need to ...

Use of Multidiscipline Solutions to Improve Automotive Noise, Vibration and Harshness

Simulation software is being used extensively around the world due to their accuracy and cost-effectiveness. Instead of using different simulation tools for every different type of testing process, engineers can use multidiscipline tools to better improve NVH (noise, vibration, harshness). MD solution tools can be used for many different areas of testing, including:  Analysis of ...
