NVH Analysis for Automotive Applications Using Multiphysics Simulation

NVH Analysis for Automotive Applications Using Multiphysics Simulation


Noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) in automotive systems stem from sound and vibrations generated by various components in a vehicle. NVH analysis is critical when designing the electromechanical parts of a vehicle, ultrasonic sensors, and car audio systems. The acoustics profile of each component is a result of the interaction between multiple physical effects, including multibody dynamics, heat transfer, fluid flow, and structural mechanics. Optimizing component behavior therefore requires accurate prediction and analysis of these different physical interactions.

Key Discussion Points

Attendees will learn how to:

  1. Perform NVH analysis of car cabins, speakers, gearboxes, motors, and mufflers
  2. Efficiently model perforated baffles and pipes in mufflers
  3. Account for viscous and thermal losses in speakers
  4. Analyze the acoustic performance of liners and perforates in the presence of flow
  5. Compute transmission losses in mufflers using built-in port conditions and exterior acoustic fields in open-boundary problems
  6. Investigate sound-absorbing materials for vibration damping
