Use of Expandable Epoxy Foams for the Improvement of Structureborne NVH Performance 2006-01-0706

Advances in the design and manufacturing of Expandable Epoxy Foam Inserts have resulted in a dramatic rise in the use of these technologies for the treatment of structureborne noise and vibration control. The evolution of these technologies has resulted in light weight and cost competitive solutions when compared to changes in primary body structure and surrounding sheet metal. These advances are discussed in detail.
A structured, methodical approach to the identification of requirements for vehicle treatments is discussed. Based on these requirements, a process for the evaluation of application designs and the design optimization process are discussed. Validation of both the material technology and the engineering approach are presented through demonstration on actual vehicle applications.
