The challenges associated with using composites as a replacement for aluminum reside primarily in the complex manufacturing processes and technologies for fabricating composite parts. The high cost of composites material and its manufacturing complexity have been inhibitors to the wide transfer of this technology to the non-aerospace market. The search for solutions to high manufacturing costs and efficient manufacturing processes have resulted in intense research by government, aerospace industry companies, and space agencies worldwide.

***Please note: The Thursday, June 25, 2015 seminar class time is 10:30am - 6:00pm. The sound package materials for vehicle noise control seminar provides a detail and thorough analysis of three different classes of acoustical materials – namely absorbers, barriers, and dampers, how they are different from each other, and acoustical properties that materials should possess for optimum vehicle noise control. The seminar addresses new advances in acoustical materials, primarily in absorption materials that impact the vehicle acoustics.

Event
The purpose of this session is to describe solutions for weight savings, which is a well-known strategy for improving fuel consumption in vehicles, and to explain the NVH impact of these weight reductions. Weight savings can come from interior and structural parts of vehicle in the form of one of the following solutions: composite materials, light weight alloys, aluminum & magnesium versus steel, bonding dissimilar materials, new damping compounds, elimination of mass barriers, higher performance acoustical products, reduction of part weight, reduction of part size, material substitutions, or reduced complexity of parts. NVH countermeasures for these weight reduction solutions will be outlined so that lightweight design for next generation vehicles can be implemented with attention to noise and vibration throughout the vehicle.

Surface texture is one of the most important topics in today's world of design, development and performance. As tolerances are shrinking and performance demands are increasing, surface texture is rapidly becoming one of the most important aspects of engine and vehicle performance. Every moving component on a vehicle or engine is influenced by surface texture in one or more of the following ways: vibration, sealing, adhesion, traction, emissions, safety, durability, wear/failure analysis. Many of the industry's top warranty issues (leaks, noise, vibration, etc.) are a direct result of surface texture implications.
