- High Tech Consulting : Automotive Industry

Over the years we have worked on a variety of projects related to the automotive industry. From vibration and acoustics issues on the drive train of our local electric car manufacturer, Tesla, to diagnosing radiator failure on a high performance after market product using time and frequency domain measurements of acceleration and strain. The use of vibration testing in locating a frequency dependent load path is an essential part of the de-bugging process. This testing becomes part of our larger understanding of the whole system and its interrelated dynamic couplings. We characterize the problem, analyze the data, report to engineering team to explain what is happening and why, present various engineering solutions, and/or next steps.

We often us accelerometers to measure response to operating conditions, or to forces applied though our electromagnetic shakers and force hammers. From these tests we identify force transmission paths, and response-per-force characteristics. These frequency response functions (FRFs) are helpful in solving vibration related fatigue issues, acoustic transmission issues, and resonance issues.
