International Congress : SIA-CTTM Automotive NVH Comfort

  • 17 & 18 October 2018
  • Le Mans - France

A look back on NVH 2018

 

The 10th edition of Automotive NVH comfort conference was held on October 17-18, 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. This year, 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 has been addressed such as vehicle, power train, system & component case studies, new materials, light weight concepts, progress in numerical and experimental methodologies.

 

This year,  the young engineer prize has been awarded to Thibaut Le Magueresse from the company MicrodB for his paper « Transmission Loss measurement of an automotive dash panel by Bayesian Focusing ».

 

 

This 10 th edition was the last one for Charles Zhang as chairman of the NVH congress, we wish him luck and welcome Léon Gavric as new chairman.

 

 

 

The 2018 edition was a great success, thank you to all the speakers, exhibitors and attendees.

Do not forget to save the date for the next NVH congress in 2020!
