Abstract [en]

With the development of the vehicle industry and the innovation of technology, driving experience is improving in all aspects. Volvo is more and more focusing on improving the comfort of driving. Part of this is to minimize squeaks and rattle (S&R) from vehicle seats. A physical measurement method was studied from component level in this thesis. The communication with the supplier has helped to better understand the definition and measurement method of play. Based on the previous work from Volvo and the supplier, a new improved algorithm has been developed to suit current production demands in this thesis work. A Graphical User Interface (GUI) has been finished for general engineers. The Study and exploration of a FEM simulation method make it possible to measure play in an economical way in the future.
