Engineering Challenges with Vehicle Noise and Vibration in Product Development 2007-01-2434
Vehicle noise and vibration (NVH) is among the important attributes of the vehicle. This attribute has to be designed for in the product development process. This produces challenges that are usually overlooked by researchers in the field.
These challenges are assessed in this manuscript. The emphasis here is on the NVH phenomenon at the vehicle level. Little work is being done to study the vehicle noise and vibration from a system or customer perspective. This manuscript brings to the attention of researchers and the NVH community at large the various NVH challenges that constitute complexities to the development engineer and may deserve closer attention.
