Electrifying Challenges for Road and Tyre Noise

CarsMIRA Technology Institute
18 September 2019

Road and tyre noise present a significant challenge to vehicle manufacturers, particularly with the electrification of vehicles.  This “Electrifying Challenges for Road and Tyre Noise” seminar offers an opportunity to discover and discuss recent novel experimental and analytical methods for understanding and controlling road noise transmission in vehicles, in addition to hearing case studies in the reduction of road noise both at the wheel and body of modern vehicles.
