Module overview

Driven by both, legislation and consumer demand, automotive vehicle manufacturers have achieved considerable reductions in internal and external noise in recent decades. Key to understanding such advances and targeting future efforts is an appreciation of the contributions of the various noise sources and their dependence on operating conditions. This module provides an overview of noise sources in a vehicle and how they can be reduced or mitigated against. The powertrain (engine, clutch, gearbox, drive shaft and differential) is a predominant source of noise and vibration in some conditions and is considered here in some detail. The origins of powertrain related dynamic forces are examined and design principles are discussed for minimizing them both at source and in transmission to the vehicle.
