NVH & Friction
The Area NVH & Friction deals with the fields of Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH), as well as the determination and reduction of friction loss in the vehicle. Within the context of ever-increasing system complexity, this area seeks to provide solutions to help meet the growing demands for drive systems with recuced consumption and emissions and lower weights, all while maintaining (or even improving) passenger comfort.
The research focus is on the areas of:
- NVH Material & Technology
- Vehicle Noise Reduction
- Friction Loss & Vibration Reduction
- Flow Acoustics
- Testing & Measurement
In combination with the other aspects of the full vehicle, these issues form an essential keystone in the development of future vehicle concepts.
