Acoustics and comfort

For development engineers working for automobile companies and their suppliers, vehicle acoustics are becoming ever more significant. Currently, the target is not only a low-noise product but also the creation of a suitable acoustic climate.


This objective requires detailed analyses of the noise produced by engine, ancillary units and power-train as well as of tire-road and aerodynamically induced noise. Apart from acoustic optimization, optimally engineered vibrational comfort is also highly significant.


For these reasons, FKFS set up its own acoustics department in the early seventies. Currently, two precisely geared departments with excellent staff and outstanding technical equipment are engaged in research and development projects concerning acoustics and vibrational behavior of engines and road vehicles.
