Development of a Test Method for BSR Noise and the Full-Vehicle Testing System 2014-01-0822
Since vehicle NVH reduction technology has improved dramatically, buzz, squeak and rattle (hereafter referred to as “BSR”) noise quantification from interior and exterior of the vehicle becomes an important factor to measure the quality of the vehicle. (The cost rate of BSR noise claims take around 10-15%, moreover BSR noise negatively affects customers to purchase vehicles.) Therefore, a research of BSR evaluation comes to the fore to make a premium car.
In this paper, we would like to introduce the development of a vehicle excitation test mode, the full-vehicle BSR test system, and a sound acoustic camera to detect BSR noise.
The test profiles were correlated with various road severities such as the domestic field test sites including 5,000km cross-country off road, 19 test tracks for BSR in R&D test center, and quality test tracks in domestic factories. These test modes were classified into 4 levels (Low-Normal-High-Crazy) by judging degrees of GRMS values.
The full-vehicle test system can reproduce various field road profiles of the BSR for chassis parts, interior, and exterior for temperatures of −40∼60°C. The profiles range from high displacement roads such as bump stopper to high frequency road like Belgian road.
