Abstract:
An overview of the analytical noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) simulations performed to support the design and development of the Nissan Quest mini-van is presented. The use of analytical techniques on this project was unique in that analytical results were used to drive the pre-prototype design efforts, as well as to assist in the prototype development phase. Analytical models were developed, and simulations performed, prior to the release of prototype drawings. The simulation results identified necessary changes which were incorporated into the design. Once prototype vehicles became available, analytical simulations and development testing were used hand-in-hand to minimize development time as well as to optimize the cost, weight, and performance of NVH countermeasures. The extensive use of analytical simulations in the design and development process was critical in achieving the aggressive NVH performance objectives set for the vehicle. A summary of analytical methods used, and examples of their impact on the vehicle design are given.
