What is the effect of temperature on e-NVH?

Impact on excitations Temperature can first influence electromagnetic excitations (e.g. slotting harmonics) responsible for magnetic noise in electric machines. It is already known that cogging torque varies with temperature due

What is acoustic loudness?

Context There are differences between sound parameters we measure physically and the sound perception we have as humans. For instance, we are used to describe the loudness of a sound

What is sharpness?

Definition Sound perception is a subjective phenomenon depending on both physical and cognitive factors. The aim of psychoacoustics is to better understand the human perception of sound and improve Sound

What is tonality?

Definitions A tone is a sound composed of a single frequency component. Sounds we hear can be either pure tones (e.g. a whistle in a quiet background), or a combination

What is psychoacoustics?

Context Hearing is a cognitive phenomenon : auditive perception can be improved with experience, but it can also diminish with age, hearing fatigue or traumatism. Perception varies from a person

What is masking effect?

Definition Some sounds may no longer be perceived when combined with an additional sound: this effect is called masking. There are two forms of masking : spectral and temporal. Spectral
