Multi Objective Optimization of Noise and Vibration in Passenger Car Cabin by Using Goal Programming Approach
Car cabin acoustical comfort is one of the main points which may attract the customers to purchase a new vehicle. Basically the noise in passenger car cabin is closely related to generated vibration in the vehicle system. The amount of discomfort depends to magnitude, frequency, direction and also the duration of exposed vibration in the cabin. The comfort of the driving influences driving performance. Generally the vibration is caused by two main sources: engine transmission and interaction between tyre and road surface. In this study the effects of vibration to noise in passenger car cabin were studied. Vehicle acoustical comfort index (VACI) was used to evaluate the noise annoyance level and vibration dose value (VDV) was used to evaluate the vibration level. According to the changes trend of noise and vibration level depending to engine speeds, goal programming model was used to optimise the noise annoyance level in passenger car cabin. At the end of study, a multi objective model successfully built to optimize the noise annoyance levels by looking the required vibration dose value at certain engine speeds. The results of the study might be useful for automotive researchers to provide technical method to optimize acoustical comfort in manufacturing of vehicles.
