Activities in Vibroacoustics include numerical simulations through techniques as FEM, BEM, SEA, and multibody simulation of vehicle and subsystems aimed at the optimization of the acoustic and vibration behaviour. Particular attention is paid toward the study of gas-dynamic noise produced by the intake and exhaust systems and the implementation of innovative methods based on auto-regressive mathematical models for knocking identification by using vibrational data acquired on board.
