Sound Package Materials for Vehicle Noise Control

The sound package materials for vehicle noise control seminar provides a detail and thorough analysis of three different classes of acoustical materials - namely absorbers, barriers, and dampers, how they are different from each other, and acoustical properties that materials should possess for optimum vehicle noise control. The seminar addresses new advances in acoustical materials, primarily in absorption materials that impact the vehicle acoustics. The seminar covers ways to evaluate the acoustical performance of these materials using different test methods, including material, component, and vehicle level measurements. The two day seminar starts with the fundamentals of NVH and sound quality related to sound package materials and discusses the importance of various noise sources that impact the development of sound package treatments in a vehicle.
