International Conference : Automotive NVH Comfort

  • 17 & 18 October 2018
  • Le Mans - France

Context & Objectives

AUTOMOTIVE NVH COMFORT 2018

 

President’s message for the Automotive NVH Comfort Conference 2018

 

 

The 10th edition of Automotive NVH comfort conference will take place on October 18-19, 2018 in Le Mans which is known for its concentration of acoustic laboratories and research institutes.

 

With 20 years history, the Automotive NVH comfort conference in Le Mans has become one of the most important events for the automotive acoustic community. In 2016, more than 200 engineers and researchers from 10 countries jointed our conference. They represent European & worldwide automotive OEMs, suppliers, engineering companies and research institutes.

As previous editions, a large scope of topics will be addressed such as vehicle, power train, system & component case studies, new materials, light weight concepts, progress in numerical and experimental methodologies.  In particular, there will be two special sessions:

 

  • New pass-by noise regulation session which addresses not only numerical and experimental methods but also technologies to achieve the phase 3 target (68 dBA).
  • NVH of new energy vehicles

 

As the last edition, we’ll distribute a young engineer award to motivate research and industrial application works. In 2016, Dr M. T. Hoang from Faurecia was awarded for this paper ‘Microstructure morphological optimization of foam-based lightweight insulators’.

 

We are counting on you all to make the Automotive NVH Comfort Conference a big success.
