Reverse NVH engineering and more at SAE Noise & Vibration Conference

By Joelle Beuzit

Could reverse engineering possibly serve another purpose than the one of creating insipid copies of well-engineering vehicles? Surely it can. Discover at the 2017 SAE Noise and Vibration Conference how a reversed engineering approach combining test and CAE (1D/3D) modelling helps fully understand and predict vehicle behavior with respect to driveline torsional oscillations and low-frequency booming noise and vibration. The investigation was carried out on a rear-wheel drive vehicle equipped with a centrifugal pendulum vibration absorber (CPVA) and delivers excellent results in a first step to accelerate system driven product development into a consolidated model-based system engineering framework.
