Scania Customer Story
Squeak and rattle phenomena are studied in the automotive industry in an attempt to reduce the cabin noise and as a result, give a better ride quality and comfort to occupants. In the case of Scania’s Cabin Development Department, this kind of simulation was not performed historically. The team had to rely on tolerance calculations as well as the choice of materials to reduce the risk of squeak and rattle. To reduce development time and cut down on iterative changes, a desirable solution was identified that enabled a simulation-driven design process during the early stages of the cabin development cycle.
