With the ever increasing demands for reduced noise and increased comfort, engineers constantly strive to give a smoother ride coupled with better sound quality. The papers presented in this important volume exaimine the developments and available technologies involved in reducing the interior and exterior noise in passenger cars, trucks, and other vehicles. Vehicle Noise and Vibration looks closely at the range of technologies employed by engineers for analysis, diagnosis, and design of vehicles and their sub-systems. This volume addresses the key areas of: Powertrain design and refinement Development of exhaust and suspension systems Transfer of road-surface excited vibrations Artificial excitation test techniques for noise generation Boundary element analysis in vehicle NVH refinement Optimization of power steering, strut mountings, and suspension systems Vehicle Noise and Vibration includes contributions from acknowledged experts in the field, backed-up by case studies and theoretical possibilities. This volume is invaluable reading for all those involved in the important field of automotive engineering.12-13 May 1998, IMechE Headquarters, London, UK Institution of Mechanical Engineers (Great Britain).
