Material Sciences Corporation has developed laminated steel and aluminium that will reduce noise and vibration while cutting mass.
When it comes to electric vehicles, every pound matters. With the weight of the vehicle and the battery pack, every possible measure is taken by engineers to reduce vehicle mass.
Traditionally, the reduction in NVH has been achieved by increasing mass. This leaves engineers with a trade-off between reducing mass and attaining the best Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) characteristics in a vehicle body.
In this article, from Charged Electric Vehicles Magazine, Matt Murphy, VP of Engineered Solutions at Material Sciences Corporation (MSC) discusses what MSC is developing to eliminate the trade-off between light weighting and NVH optimization, leading with Quiet Steel® and Quiet Aluminium®.
