Investigation of Cabin Noise while Accelerating on Low Mu Track through Simulation Approach Using Full Vehicle ADAMS/Car Model 2019-26-0179

Cabin noise is a significant product quality criteria which enables the customers for product differentiation. There are various sources of cabin noise such as wind, structures(panels), engine, suspension, tire and roads. During product development phase, extensive tests has been conducted to improve vehicle dynamics behavior on various climatic conditions. One such test is accelerating vehicle on low mu or icy surface. While performing acceleration manoeuvre (tractions) on a low mu tracks, Cabin noise with source identified from front underbody & low tractive torque build up is reported. This undesirable behavior may occur due to following reason (1) Excitation of coupled modes between suspension and powertrain which induces torque fluctuation. (2) Transmissibility of various subsystem can be the reason for above problem statement. (3) Poorly chosen tire compounds and design leads to fluctuation in torque.
A detailed simulation based study using ADAMS/CAR has been performed to assess the contribution of various full vehicle sub-systems, primarily suspension & powertrain sub-system towards the said problem statement. The dynamic interaction between road, suspension, powertrain and BIW has been is the focus of study both in time and frequency domain. This simulation helped understand the factor effects and contribution levels and correlates well with the subjective feel observed on the physical vehicle on low-mu track. This model has been further used to provide design recommendation on the compliance parameters to overcome the issue at hand. Test has been conducted with recommended tire grip properties and suspension bushing parameters which lead to reduction in cabin noise
