Vibration, Sound Quality, Vehicle Acoustical Comfort Index, Vbration Dos Value
Vehicle acoustical comfort and vibration in passenger car cabin are the factors which attract the buyers to a vehicle in order to have a comfortable driving environment. The amount of discomfort depends on the magnitude, frequency, direction and also the duration of exposed vibration in the cabin. The comfort of the driving will affect the driver by influencing performance, for example by bothering vision, and at the same time giving stress to the driver due to generated noise. Generally the vibration is caused by two main sources, which are engine transmission and interaction between tyres and the road surface. In this study an approach has been carried out to find out the amount of noise which was influenced by the vibration due to interaction between tyres and road surface. The sound quality study has focused on the estimation of the noise changes through the generated sound quality depending on engine speeds. From the results, the amount of noise followed the increases and decreases of the engine speeds. The results of the study provided a technical method to show the correlation between the noise annoyance level and engine speeds in order to predict the noise annoyance level due to exposed vibration caused by the interaction between tyres and road surface.
