4 Common Issues Faced When Developing Vehicles Using CAE

The second of a four-part series on Automotive NVH comfort, these series are based on the paper, “Improving Vehicle NVH CAE Prediction Capability to Prevent Expensive Late Design Changes” written by Andrew Burke, Global NVH Manager at Altair. To view part one of the series, click here.

Vehicle customers now expect a high level of refinement. This coupled with the market trends discussed in part one of this blog series presents many challenges for NVH (Noise, Vibration, and Harshness) Engineers. CAE is widely recognized as an essential part of the NVH design process. However, methods and procedures must be continually reviewed and developed if design and business challenges are to be met.

Automotive Trends Presenting Challenges for NVH Engineers

Part one of a four-part series on Automotive NVH comfort, this series is based on the paper, “Improving Vehicle NVH CAE Prediction Capability to Prevent Expensive Late Design Changes” written by Andrew Burke, Global NVH Manager at Altair.

Vehicle customers have an increasing expectation for refinement, which is a very important differentiator in a crowded market. Noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) performance is strongly linked to this perception of refinement and quality. In addition to the increasing expectation for refinement, there are also other trends that present many challenges for NVH Engineers, these include:

Drive for Light Weight Designs

Generally, reduction in weight has an adverse effect on NVH performance. This is due to having less mass and inertia to react forces and lighter designs may also compromise structural performance.
