Royston, Herts, United Kingdom, 2012/11/27 - A Desktop Noise Vibration Harshness (NVH) Simulator has vastly improved Commercial Vehicle Group’s (CVG) customer relations and jury testing capabilities - BKsv.com.
The simulator was the latest addition to their range of Brüel & Kjær products that began when their R&D facility was commissioned in 2008. Back then, when it came to setting up a new lab, the combined experience of their commercial and construction vehicle experts led them to choose Brüel & Kjær to provide the equipment they need for world-leading NVH development of their automotive solutions.
The significant investment in the new headquarters clearly showed that they were ready to meet the demands of the world’s customers. As Jim Haylett, an NVH Engineer and the group’s NVH expert says: “It is clear that our customers are increasingly concerned about acoustics and this is a major factor when developing new products.”
The NVH team uses the simulator for troubleshooting and performing diagnostics, as it gives greatly improved context to the testing environment, and a fuller experience. For analysing their NVH development and displaying it to customers and their own staff, CVG use the desktop unit either alone, or incorporated into a whole truck simulator that is linked to a six-degree-of-freedom driving simulator made by MOOG. With it they can simulate hills, snow and ice, and benchmark competitor products. The NVH Simulator adds sound and interior cabin vibration to give a totally realistic driving experience.
