Comfortable Driving Without Annoying Noise
Line Systems for Power Steering for optimized Acoustics
The severe space restrictions in modern engine compartments make it necessary to tightly define the routing of lines.
The only design latitude left to development engineers is within the lines themselves. The laws of physics as they pertain to sound damping can also be applied to fluid conduction lines in the form of suitable flow guidance and the creation of resonance spaces.
Purposeful measuring and evaluative analysis are used to identify critical areas in the specific vehicle. Appropriate configuration of the line's "inner life" then provides the solution. The goal in each case is to assimilate the noise inevitably generated by the servo-pump into the overall sound level of the vehicle or to avoid annoying noise regardless of the vehicle's operating state.
