Improve aerodynamic wind tunnel noise testing efficiency

In the automotive industry, vehicle wind tunnel testing represents an effective solution to measure and optimize the wind noise after applying thorough CFD and 3D vibro-acoustic simulation in the earlier development stages. However, with the rising electrification trend, the wind tunnels are in great demand. As the combustion engine no longer masks wind noise, it becomes a top priority to refine. Because of the high cost related to vehicle wind tunnel testing, testing facilities need improved procedures to cope with demand versus cost. For this reason, it is essential to capture as much information as possible during each test run. As a result, there is a shift from more basic testing systems towards more advanced, high channel-count systems.

Engineers are challenged to get the maximum out of test campaigns and need to understand which methods and technologies are the right mix for the job. By combining all different technologies into one integrated platform, new insights for improving vehicle aero-acoustic performance can be obtained. Our solutions offer state-of-the-art technologies, maximum productivity, and reliability and are a safe choice for current and future needs.
