Design of Automobile Components for the Minimization of Aeroacoustic Noise
In recent years, automotive manufacturers have invested significantly in measures to minimize the noise level within an automobile cabin. Today, aeroacoustic noise produced by airflow over car accessories such as vehicle side-mirrors, windscreen wipers and roof carrier systems make a significant contribution to the sound level within the automobile cabin. Consequently, the design of these components to minimize aeroacoustic noise has become important. This paper is concerned with minimizing the aeroacoustic noise of a roof carrier system.
