This four-session web seminar provides a detailed understanding of the source – path-receiver relationship for developing appropriate sound package treatments in vehicles, including automobiles, commercial vehicles, and other transportation devices. The course provides a detailed overview of absorption, attenuation (barrier), and damping materials and how to evaluate their performances on material, component, and vehicle level applications. A significant part of this course is the case studies that demonstrate how properly designed sound package materials successfully address vehicle noise issues.

Note: A similar course is available as a classroom seminar.

Learning Objectives
By participating in this web seminar, you will be able to:

  • Identify various descriptors that are used in acoustics while working with sound package materials
  • Identify three fundamentally different sound package materials that are used in the industry
  • Explain how these materials work and how to improve their performance
  • Describe how various measurements are made and why they are necessary on a material level, component level, and vehicle level
  • Prescribe appropriate sound package materials for specific NVH issues
  • Construct proper protocols for combining different sound package materials for different components so that the final vehicle meets the required acoustic target

Who Should Attend
This web seminar will be especially valuable for those new to the vehicle sound package area and those interested in how absorbers, barriers, and dampers work, how they are different from each other, how they interact with each other in an application, and what one needs to be aware of while making measurements so the results are meaningful. The course is also designed for OEM or supplier engineers and those in roles involved with design, evaluation, trouble-shooting, procuring, releasing, supplying, and/or manufacturing noise control materials and parts for passenger cars and light trucks, heavy trucks, off-highway vehicles, farm machinery, and other transportation systems including aircraft, watercraft and rail transit. An undergraduate degree and familiarity with basic acoustics and vibration, or acoustical materials would be beneficial.

Registration Information
Registration for this live web seminar is available on a per-person basis, similar to purchasing a seat in a classroom. Participants attend an online session from work or home; anywhere with a PC with internet access (at least 56K) and a telephone. The fee includes one connection to the conference calls (toll free telephone number provided for U.S. and select countries*) and assigned personal ID number; one connection to SAE's online training center (via WebEx); and access to a secure course in the SAE Learning Center that contains the presentations, class session recordings, supplemental materials, and assignments.

Registrations will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. the day before the start of the web seminar, but early registration is encouraged to allow for pre-course set-up and instructions.

*Global toll-free telephone numbers are provided for many countries outside the U.S., but are limited to those on the WebEx call-in toll-free number list. Check here to see if your country has a global call-in toll free telephone number for this web seminar. If your country is not listed, you may still connect using the US/Canada Call-in toll number or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).

Although WebEx Training Manager will automatically launch when you join the web seminar, you or your system administrator are encouraged to download the plug-in in advance to help ensure successful setup. Click here, then follow the onscreen instructions.

NOTE: The course presentation will be recorded and made available for 30 days to those who register by the deadline.
