Acoustics / NVH

Vehicle acoustics are becoming more and more important for development engineers at automotive manufacturers and automotive suppliers. The priority is now no longer just a quiet product, but rather to create a suitable acoustic atmosphere. To achieve these goals, detailed studies of the noise generated by engines, auxiliary units and power transmission are needed, as well as of tire-road noise, wind noise, and components such as HVAC systems for example. In addition to acoustic optimization, creating the best possible vibration comfort is also very important.

This is why FKFS set up its own acoustics department, right back at the start of the 1970s. Research and development projects on acoustics and vibrations in engines and vehicles are currently ongoing in two closely-linked departments, both with excellent equipment and outstanding staff.
