Smart NVH Solutions for Next-Generation Brake Design

Available On Demand until September 15, 2017

Brake noise is one of the most frequent complaints from car owners. Brake engineers have spent significant time addressing consumer complaints of rattles, groans, and squeals.

Consumer expectations and the high cost of warranty repairs have created heightened demand for optimized brake NVH performance. Additional demands are placed on automotive manufacturers as a result of new technologies such as autonomous emergency braking (AEB), which requires reduced NVH to ensure reliable sensor and communication functions.

To address these issues, automotive brake engineers need an understanding of lubrication tribology and product options that can deliver solutions for the most demanding challenges. This 30-minute Webinar provides insight on tribology’s role in brake system design and examines how selecting the appropriate lubricant can simplify design and improve performance. Also highlighted are the latest product technologies being developed to address next-generation NVH concerns.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
