ISNVH Congress puts VIRTUAL VEHICLE into the spotlight of the automotive scene.
At the "International Styrian Noise, Vibration & Harshness (ISNVH)“ Congress in Graz, organized by VIRTUAL VEHICLE, 200 international experts from 17 countries discussed on the latest developments and simulation methods to make vehicle models of the future lighter, more efficient, more silent and even safer, all without losing its typical "sound".
From July 2nd to 4th 2014, around 200 specialists from all over the world attended the eighth "International Styrian Noise, Vibration and Harshness & Congress” (ISNVH) in Graz, to discuss challenges in the field of noise and vibration in vehicles. The ISNVH Congress is the most important European conference on this topic. This year was all about solutions for NVH (Noise, Vibration & Harshness) for light and energy-efficient vehicles with a variety of (alternative) propulsion systems. These require completely new concepts and architectures not only for engine and drive train but also for body and interior to be true consumption-saving champions.
The list of speakers ranges from experts of manufacturers like BMW, Daimler, Toyota, Renault and Nissan up to suppliers such as AVL, Magna or Autoneum, software manufacturers like ANSYS, EXA or ESI to universities like RWTH Aachen, TU Graz and KTH Stockholm. The specialists in the field of noise, vibration & harshness take measures early in the development of vehicles, in order to reduce noise generally and to achieve optimal acoustics. Disturbing noises are largely avoided in both, the cabin and on the road.
The Congress is organized by VIRTUAL VEHICLE, AVL List GmbH, MAGNA STEYR AG & Co KG and the ACstyria Autocluster GmbH as well as the SFG - Styrian Business Promotion Agency in cooperation with the American Society of Automotive Engineering International (SAE).
