Automotive noise and vibration

ISVR Consulting’s automotive specialists, formerly the Automotive Design Advisory Unit, have been involved in all aspects of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) for over 40 years.  We have a deep knowledge of automotive engineering and are well placed to solve NVH problems, and to identify means of refining prototype or production engines, vehicles or components.  

Areas of expertise include

Many of the above topics naturally extend to wheeled and tracked military vehicles, and noise in trains.

We have developed High- and Low-frequency Omni-directional Sound Sources with a custom-built noise generator and amplifier.  These are widely used by automotive companies worldwide.   Although we routinely carry out noise and vibration measurements, our main expertise is in more advanced applied research and modelling, and the development of test methods and prediction techniques with a longer-term approach.  

We also present bespoke short courses on noise and vibration for automotive professionals.
