Abstracts must be submitted on-line to only ONE session. Upon submission, you will receive an automatic reply with your paper offer number. If you do not receive a paper offer number at that point, please retry on-line submission or email

Vehicle Subsystem NVH Track

SESSION: Body Strucutre / Chassis

This session covers static and dynamic issues in the body and chassis that contribute to noise and vibration problems in vehicles. Included in this session are modal studies, measurement and analysis methods, transfer path analysis, design guidelines, and recommended practices for noise and vibration control of the body and chassis.


This session provides a good overview of current issues and problem-solving activities in vehicle braking system noise. Braking noise is one of the highest dollars cost warranty issues for the automakers, and therefore, gets considerable attention. The papers of this session will describe both experimental and analytical programs of investigations related to this issue.


This session includes papers regarding vehicle exterior or interior tire/pavement noise

SESSION: Airbag Deployment

This session covers noise sources, measurement and analysis techniques, noise attenuation strategies, case studies, design practices, prediction and modeling methods, and human response related to air bag deployment noise.

SESSION: Squeak and Rattle

This session is focused on the vehicle body interior noise issues caused by friction and/or impact due to the vibration of interfacing components. The papers in this session will investigate those issues through the best practice of analytical and experimental applications.

SESSION: Mounts and Shock Absorbers

This session is dedicated to contributed papers in the areas of static, dynamic, and fatigue characterization of elastomers, bushings, mounts and shock absorbers used in the mobility industry. Particular emphasis is given to new and innovative analysis and testing methodologies to quantify the non-linear properties of these system in addition to the effects of of temperature, frequency, and aging. Papers dealing with specific applications and case studies of existing methodologies are also welcome.
