Objective Analysis of the Impact on the Design Change of a Halfshaft 2008-36-0552

The production of vehicles with low noise and vibration level at low costs has been one of the main targets of the automobilist industry. The noise level heard by the passengers inside the vehicle influences directly on the perception they have about the car.
