Acoustics, Vibration Behaviour and Dynamic Loads

We run experimental and numerical analyses in the following areas of the dynamic behaviour of units, components and systems liable to vibrate.

Acoustics

  • Acoustic harmonisation of vehicle systems in the vehicle or under laboratory conditions (steering, stabiliser control, gearboxes, electric, pneumatic and hydraulic drives, powertrain, etc.)
  • Actual status evaluation, improvement and optimisation, recommendations for packaging, pre-series and series releases
  • Set-up and operation of test benches for the development of systems regarding fluid-borne and structure-borne noise and assessment
  • Advice on design, simulation and prototype construction in the field of acoustics
  • Coordination and/ or support of development work by OEMs and suppliers
  • Support in the drafting of specifications and creation of processes

Vibration behaviour and dynamic loads

  • Measuring of operational vibrations (dynamic loads, dynamic responses, structure-borne and fluid-borne noise)
  • Analysis and assessment according to specified standards as a basis for component testing and for the development of test procedures
  • Analysis and assessment of ride comfort, rough road analyses
  • Mobile measurements in vehicle or on test bench, also with ignited engine
  • Sensor applications, in particular DMS applications for determining loads on ignited or rotating parts
  • Calibration of test parts (bending, torsion, rotating bending, tension, internal pressure etc.)
  • Determination of static and dynamic properties of components, body in white and complete vehicle
  • Identification of structural changes
