Filling the Gaps in Brake NVH Development 2010-01-1684
NVH development is an important part of modern brake product development plans. This paper analyzes a typical NVH development process and identifies gaps in available development technologies and processes that when filled can improve the brake NVH development effort. The paper also discusses how the disciplines of simulation, component testing, dynamometer testing, and vehicle testing are currently integrated and proposes more effective processes of development. The paper identifies opportunities for contributions from professional societies and standardization organizations, vendors of test equipment and software, test laboratories, university research centers as well as brake suppliers' engineering centers to improve the engineering toolbox and fill the gaps in brake NVH development.
