Dr Cor-Jacques Kat from the Vehicle Dynamics Group at the University of Pretoria, South Africa recently completed a month secondment to Tenneco in Belgium, a leading automotive component manufacturer.
During this secondment, laboratory and proving ground tests were conducted at Tenneco’s Monroe Engineering Technical Center, Sint-Truiden, Belgium and Ford’s proving ground in Lommel, Belgium. The aim of the tests were to better understand difference thresholds of whole-body vibration and how it can be used in vehicle suspension design. Dr Kat also attended the mid-term project meeting hosted by UNIMORE in Modena, Italy.
