Anticipating Automotive NVH Issues Earlier with IPG CarMaker & Ansys Sound
The way a vehicle sounds, whether it’s the chassis, infotainment system or drivetrain can have a profound impact on the consumer and buying experience—making understanding potential issues for noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) early in the design stage critical. Many Automotive OEMs want to anticipate noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) issues early, however this can require numerous prototypes and physical testing, which can be costly and time consuming.
In this session, we will showcase how using a combination of computer-aided engineering (CAE) files and NVH measurements allows acoustics engineers to attain real-time playback and evaluation within a driving simulator.
We will showcase a workflow using IPG CarMaker simulations and Ansys Sound post-processing tools to understand how vehicle noise will impact human perception. This workflow saves time on NVH troubleshooting and target setting, eliminates over-engineering costs, and allows companies to differentiate from the competition with an NVH-customer centric approach.
