NOISE CONTROL IN VEHICLES

A key issue in the control of noise inside vehicles is how to prevent or reduce the transmission or re-radiation of vibration as sound. In addition, both weight and space are at a premium. Enter sound damped metal sheet and retro-damp adhesive dampers. Weight for weight they are an order of magnitude more effective than conventional unconstrained layer damping treatments, are more rugged and can be designed-in to the components – even complex formed components and using the same tooling.

automotive damped sumpLow noise is very closely associated with the perceived quality of transport vehicles. Moreover, there are very tight design constraints associated with their design. The “dead metals” provided by us are ideal elements to control structure borne vibration to reduce radiated sound in this field as they are low cost, highly effective and do not impact on other design elements (space, geometries etc).

Typical solutions range from the supply of damped steel or aluminium sheets to the provision of adhesive dampers for existing structures to the manufacture of damped sets of components.

Sound Damped Steel has many years of experience in this field. Contact us to discuss your application.

Heavy equipment and speciality vehicles
Operator and environmental noise levels can be serious issues. SDS materials are ideal elements for these applications as they are high;y effective, rugged and low cost.
