Over the past decade the increased usability and capability of multi-physics simulation tools available to engineers has created a valuable opportunity for more accurate, better informed, and faster product development. This trend is well encapsulated in the recent industry buzzword the ‘digital twin’ which describes virtual replicas of complete physical systems that engineers can use to run simulations before new hardware or hardware updates are built and deployed.

As the growing popularity of hybrid and electric powertrains leads to lower cabin noise levels, and often more complex drivelines, attention focuses on improving drivetrain refinement by reducing noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). Some companies are already ahead of the curve, using sophisticated NVH test techniques to ensure that the required refinement levels are maintained throughout the entire production run of assemblies such as axles, differentials and transfer boxes. One such company is Dana UK Axle.
