Electric vehicle manufacturers intent on maximizing passenger comfort must consider the acoustics inside the cabin. With conventional engines, the primary noise source comes from the powertrain. For electrical vehicles, road-noise, HVAC noise, and external wind-induced noise become the main critical noise sources manufacturers are looking to reduce. One significant source of internal noise is generated by the side mirror (wing mirror). Design teams can mitigate noise issues by using simulation early in the design process – even before building the first physical prototype.
In this webinar, our experts will focus on how engineers can simulate external wind noise, propagate the noise into the cabin, and determine the noise level heard by the passengers.
During this session, we focus on the airflow around the side view mirror and cover:
Director, Simcenter solutions for Automotive and Transportation
Frederick started with CD-adapco in 1989, which was acquired in 2016 by Siemens and has extensive experience working with customers on applications such as vehicle heat protection, aerodynamics, and passenger thermal comfort. Frederick has been directly involved development process enabling automation of virtual vehicle simulation all the way from CAD to results. Frederick is currently working with the STAR-CCM+ product management team to help customers streamline their in-house process.
Application Specialist for Vehicle Aerodynamics
Peter has a Bachelor of Engineering degree in mechanical engineering and a Master’s degree in energy sciences. He joined Siemens in 2012 as a senior application engineer in pre-sales with a strong focus on complex geometry handling, aerodynamics and thermal management. He is now an application specialist for vehicle aerodynamics and part of the Simcenter STAR-CCM+ product management team.
