Reports on the research of a team of Cambridge University scientists aimed at developing improved techniques for modelling and reducing vehicle cabin noise in Great Britain. Grant provided to the project to fund the modelling of high-frequency vibration generated through the hubs; Computer programs developed to predict tire vibrations and hub forces; Plan to initiate laboratory-based experiments to characterize the response of the treadblock's reaction with the road.
