SAE 2015 Noise and Vibration Conference and Exhibition

Technical Session Schedule

Wednesday, June 24

Lightweight Design (Part 1 of 2)
(Session Code: NVC305)

Room Ballroom D  2:30 p.m.

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.
