beam axle NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness)





Beam Axle NVH

Beam Axle NVH

Beam axle NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) is a common issue that arises in automotive engineering. The beam axle is a suspension system that consists of one solid beam that connects the two wheels. Therefore, it is necessary to reduce NVH to improve ride comfort and driving experience.

Types of NVH in Beam Axle

There are three types of NVH that occur in beam axle systems: noise, vibration, and harshness.

Noise

Noise is the unwanted sound that is produced by the beam axle system. The noise can be caused by the contact between the axle and the chassis or by the resonance of the suspension components. To reduce noise, engineers use specialized materials to absorb sound and reduce vibration.

Vibration

Vibration is the oscillation that occurs when the beam axle system is in operation. Vibration can be felt in the steering wheel, seats, and floorboards. To reduce vibration, engineers add weight to the system to change the frequency of the oscillation or use damping materials to absorb the energy.

Harshness

Harshness is the discomfort that is felt by the passengers due to the beam axle system. Harshness can be caused by the stiffness of the suspension components or the lack of isolation from the road. To reduce harshness, engineers use specialized materials to absorb shock and isolate the suspension components.

Methods to Reduce NVH in Beam Axle

Design Modification

One of the most effective methods to reduce NVH is to modify the design of the beam axle system. Engineers can add bushings or rubber mounts to the suspension components to reduce the contact between the axle and the chassis. Additionally, the use of lightweight materials can reduce the weight of the system and improve ride comfort and handling.

Damping Materials

Damping materials are used to reduce the amplitude of the vibration and absorb the energy that is generated by the beam axle system. Engineers use specialized materials such as rubber, foam, and felt to reduce NVH. These materials are designed to absorb energy and reduce the transfer of vibration to the passenger compartment.

Balancing

Balancing is the process of adding weight to the beam axle system to reduce the frequency of the oscillation. Engineers use weights to balance the system and change the frequency of the oscillation to a level that is more comfortable for the passengers.

Tuning

Tuning is the process of adjusting the suspension components to reduce NVH. Engineers can adjust the spring rate, damping ratio, or camber angle to reduce the amplitude of the vibration or improve the isolation of the suspension components.
