Under the constraints of improved vehicle refinement, automotive OEMs are challenged to improve vehicle noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) characteristics, reduce vehicle weight, and streamline manufacturing and assembly processes. In support of these objectives, alternate methods of vehicle noise control are being investigated. This paper will address one area where alternate material strategies are being investigated to meet these requirements.
Floorpan damping treatments are a primary component of the overall vehicle noise package. This paper will investigate three floorpan damping treatments. Comparisons will be made between asphaltic melt sheets, constrained layer dampers, and spray-on dampers. Performance of these treatments will be measured using laboratory methods and will feature a case study using a Body-In-White (BIW) to demonstrate performance of the different materials.
