Pass-by Noise Analysis in a Commercial Vehicle Homologation 2003-01-3652
NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) is an important vehicle attribute and focus in every Product Development at OEM'S (Original Equipment Manufacturers). Pass-by Noise is one of these aspects in order to improve noise vehicle as a whole. As a result, this paper will show opportunities that Pass-by Noise test can get in a new development of Commercial Vehicles, presenting the methodology, NVH improvements, Quiet Truck and Frequency Analysis as well as Robustness of Noise Package Development. Moreover, the presentation will consider all the requirements and the advantages that Pass-by Noise can accomplish in a new Sound Package Development to meet a new Conama Resolution. The focus on this topic is to meet a new Governmental Regulation (CONAMA 272/2000) and consequently improve overall noise quality showing procedures that will accomplish targets of NVH. Conclusions will present the advantages of the proposed method regarding to timing and cost and real cases examples will be mentioned.
