Investigation of noise-intensive driving modes of L-category vehicles

Topic and Goal of the Thesis

L-category vehicles cause high noise emissions under specific driving maneuvers and conditions. However, the type approval tests of this vehicle class mainly cover average driving maneuvers. Therefore, the aim of this work is to identify study-based limitations of the current type approval tests in the context of real driving modes. An essential part of this work is a methodical approach for the identification and classification of current studies on type approval tests and the subsequent evaluation of these procedures.
