The Road Vehicle Aerodynamics Forum Committee (RVAC) reports to the Vehicle Engineering Systems Group of the Motor Vehicle Council. The Committee is responsible for developing and maintaining SAE Standards, Technical Papers, and Special Publications related to road vehicle aerodynamics and wind noise performance and test techniques. The Wind Noise Measurement Standards Subcommittee has been developed under the RVAC scope to provide an international forum for industry and academia to encourage the exchange of ideas and progress relating to automotive wind noise, encompassing occupant perception of wind noise, experimental methods and facilities, numerical simulation, and other methods of wind noise prediction and optimization. Participants in the SAE Road Vehicle Aerodynamics Forum Committee include OEMs, suppliers, consulting firms, government, and other interested parties.
