Shearplate – A New Innovative Approach to Reduce Powertrain Noise 2009-01-2065

This Paper is evaluating the development and effectiveness of using a Shearplate, a new and innovative approach to reduce powertrain noise and vibrations. The results show that the approach is offering monumental improvements in terms of reduced noise and vibrations. Sound quality evaluations also show very clearly that the approach is an effective countermeasure to the targeted problems. With the knowledge gathered during the development and with what is partly presented in this paper we now have an additional tool that car manufacturers can deploy in their efforts to design more fuel efficient and cleaner burning engines without sacrificing NVH performance.
