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 ...

Reducing Automotive Engine Noise with Multidiscipline Simulation

While companies can solve automotive engine noise problems by using engine mounts to stop vibration and the firewall to stop airborne noise, these solutions are not sustainable if one wishes to maintain quality. Therefore, car manufacturers taking advantage of finite element analysis (FEA) software to better understand noise and vibration. FEA can be used to ...

Understanding Automotive Engine Noise

One of the most significant pressures on car manufacturers today is sound quality. There are many factors that engineers must consider when analyzing the sound emitted by a car. Aside from being a marketing tool, there are now government regulations on sound. New developing technologies including hands-free mobile and speech recognition require the clear voice ...

Automotive Noise Optimization with Simulation Software

Using Simulation Software to Predict Automotive NVH   One of the most pressing challenges for today’s automotive manufacturers is to make lighter cars. A lighter car will maintain a lower level of gas consumption and thus is more eco-friendly. To achieve this goal, many companies switched from aluminum to composite materials and put smaller engines ...

Tuning Acoustic Quality of Audio Devices with Simulation

  When designing an audio device, the most important thing for an engineer to consider is the quality of the sound. Quality is what makes the device valuable and differentiates it from competitors. Audio device manufacturing companies experience extremely high product development costs due to repetitive and expensive physical testing. In addition to the need ...
