Having a background in testing and marketing brakes, Thompson now heads the SAE International Committee on NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) Standards, for which he developed and taught a course. Drawing on that material, he introduces brake noise and vibration testing and measurement to technicians and engineers with or without some previous experience in the noise and vibration. His topics are basic noise and vibration, brake noise characteristics, brake NVH measurements, laboratory testing, on-road testing, pad natural frequency and damping testing, and future trends.
