INVESTIGATION INTO THE CAUSES OF SOUND LEVEL DISPERSION IN ONE MODEL OF CAR FROM ONE CAR TO THE NEXT

RICERCA DELLE CAUSE DI DISPERSIONE DEI LIVELLI SONORI SU UN TIPO DI AUTOVETTURA

Among the characteristics used to define the quality level of a car model, acoustic comfort has taken increasingly more importance so that it is now on the same level as safety and fuel consumption. To offer real acoustic comfort in a given model, it is not enough to have reduced internal noise level of a prototype, there must be a guarantee that all cars in the series have been improved in the same way. This article describes the work carried out by specialists to guarantee adequate sound insulation for a whole series of vehicles, avoiding dispersion. This is the illustration of one practical case, the article does not pretend to describe a general study method. (TRRL)
