NVH CAE application on vehicle development

For Automotive OEM it is more and more crucial  to reduce the time to market and to provide high quality products to the customer at an affordable price. The product development phase and in particular the Virtual Prototyping is of utmost importance to achieve this goal.  NVH is a key quality issue for the more and more demanding costumer and therefore a more robust NVH target setting (costumer request) & deployment (from subjective to objective targets) and increased target achievement capabilities (advanced simulation methodologies) are required. 

For this reason Fiat Group Automobiles continuously enhances virtual prototyping by developing and applying new methodologies, in this presentation an overview of  advanced  NVH simulation methodologies applied during the product development will be given.
