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. On the other hand, low prices are extremely necessary to keep the projects competitive on the sales market.
This job analyses the impact caused over the noise heard inside the vehicle when a change was applied on the design of the halfshaft: the substitution of a tubular shaft by a barshaft. The main goal of this design change is the cost reduction.
