Sound Package Materials for Vehicle Noise Control
June 15-16, 2017
8:30 am - 4:30 pm

This seminar starts with the fundamentals of NVH and sound quality related to sound package materials and discusses the importance of various noise sources impacting the development of sound package treatments in a vehicle. This course provides a detailed and thorough analysis of different classes of acoustical materials—how they differ from one another and the acoustical properties needed for optimum vehicle noise control. It also addresses new advances in acoustical materials the impact on vehicle acoustics. The course covers ways to evaluate the acoustical materials including tests measuring material, component, and vehicle level measurements.

Practical NVH Signal Processing Methods
June 15-16, 2017
8:30 am - 4:30 pm

This seminar helps you understand the foundation common to all NVH data acquisition equipment including digitizing, windows, aliasing, and averaging techniques; and common analysis functions including power spectrum, transfer function, and coherence. Fundamental concepts such as filtering, modulation, convolution, and correlation are addressed as well. The seminar also covers multi-input multi-output (MIMO) signal processing, array-based solutions for force identification, source and path characterization, and data visualization. Emerging concepts are briefly covered. Computer demonstrations, physical experiments, and case studies are used to illustrate real-world problems.

Introduction to NVH Aspects of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles
June 15, 2017
8:30 am - 4:40 pm

While developing the NVH behavior of the vehicle is critical to satisfy customer expectations, it is also important to consider the influence of reduced exterior noise levels on pedestrian safety. This seminar introduces you to basic NVH principles and unique NVH challenges encountered in the development of HEV, ReEV, and EV including engine start/stop behavior, electric motor whine, driveline NVH, body structure, influence of noise from accessories, and sound quality development, as well as potential countermeasures.
