Noise, Vibration & Harshness
Signalysis was featured in a recent NVH article written by Desktop Engineering Magazine. Here is a little of what was written:
If you own a car, you’re aware how noisy they can be. To properly maintain a vehicle, it’s important to listen for any odd sounds and investigate any vibrations that might indicate an issue. A good sound and feel are a mark of automotive quality, so engineers are constantly assessing noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) to ensure safety and an optimal consumer experience.
Engineers rely on a variety of technology to help them test for NVH, ranging from traditional data acquisition hardware to CAE-based simulators. With expanding options from a host of technology and service providers, more teams are able to test in an environment configured specifically for their needs.
“The application will typically define the hardware and software requirements for a NVH test. Normally, you cannot mix and match analysis software with data acquisition hardware. However, there are a few companies that do offer cross platform support. Most companies will normally adopt a vendor’s technology based on functionality, channel count, technical capabilities and of course the cost,” says Neil Coleman, president and CEO of Signalysis.
