Innovative software for optimizing NVH performance
In order to support customers already in the design phase of new models and in the further development of existing vehicles, Autoneum uses a broad spectrum of internally developed simulation software programs. These programs combine Autoneum's in-depth expertise with the individual requirements of the vehicle manufacturers.
With the help of this software, Autoneum predicts and optimizes the NVH performance (noise, vibration, harshness) of vehicles and in doing so makes a decisive contribution towards their noise reduction. For example, Autoneum has developed the GOLD simulation software for the needs-based deployment of damping materials in the vehicle. It not only optimizes the size, weight and quality of damping materials but additionally illustrates the optimal positioning of these components in the vehicle. This enables the best possible combination of damping materials and body panels to be achieved.
The high-performance REVAMP and VisualSISAB software programs are used for the analysis, optimization and validation of the isolation and insulation properties of components for the vehicle interior floor. These components include carpet systems as well as bulkhead, wheelhouse and floor insulators. The aim is to achieve the perfect balance between acoustic performance and product weight. This enables Autoneum to make a significant contribution towards further improving the interior acoustics and reducing the weight of vehicles.
The simulation software programs developed by Autoneum are also used for the calculation and subsequent enhancement of the thermal insulation properties of components for the engine bay and the execution and analysis of material fatigue tests.
