Novel Glass Laminates for Improved Acoustic Performance 2019-01-0395
Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) performance of vehicles is an all-encompassing study of hearing and feeling vibration as it relates to end user experience. The collection of glass in a vehicle can represent a large surface area, and can have a significant effect on NVH performance. Some of the most important glazing positions in relationship to the driver are the front doors, due to the proximity to the driver. Novel glass laminate constructions can provide acoustic improvement for these body positions over typically used standard glazings. The performance of these constructions will be discussed in terms of: acoustics, glass closing and door slam survivability, and solar performance.
