Description:

Buzz, Squeak and Rattle (BSR) is the industry term for the audible engineering challenges faced by all vehicle and component engineers. Minimising BSR is of paramount importance when designing vehicle components and whole vehicle assemblies. This is the only book dedicated to the subject. It provides a self-contained reference to the background theory, testing, analysis and elimination of BSR. Written for practicing engineers and academics, the book has a focus on applications which will make it the standard handbook for those working in this area. Chapters from leading experts from across the motor industry - including from the design and research labs of Ford, Toyota, Daimler-Chrysler and GM - review the techniques available and provide readers with the appropriate physics, structural dynamics and materials science to address their own BSR issues. * The only book available on automotive BSR (Buzz, Squeak and Rattle - the number 1 cause of complaint on new cars) * Comprehensive and authoritative, with contributions from the leading figures in the field, form companies such as Ford, Toyota and Daimler-Chrysler * Enables readers to understand and utilise the complex tools used to assess, identify and rectify BSR in vehicle design and testing
