A dull, thundering noise or vibration that becomes apparent at between 50 to 60 mph is sometimes called "body boom."

a potential source of rear-seat noise and an unpleasant resonance engineers call "body boom."

First of all, the Maxima's V6 engine is so remarkably quiet, you can hear the competition's jaws drop. Then, by reinforcing the Maxima's body shielding, side sill and pillars, we reduced NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) and infrasonic vehicle sensitivity (body boom) to a minimum

Interior noise

The intensity (amplitude) of all sound heard inside a moving car but excluding that produced by a radio, air-conditioning system, etc. Usually measured in decibels (db) on the "A" weighting scale of a sound meter, thus expressed as dBA. Interior noise stems from the powertrain (intake hiss and exhaust boom from the engine, whining of transmission or differential gears, etc.), the road-tire interface (dependent on surface type and relative roughness as well as the tires' size, tread design, etc) and the car body's shape and acoustical properties (the former determining the degree to which air or "wind" is heard rushing over and around the car at speed, the latter perhaps amplifying the exhaust note or road-tire noise into a body "boom").

Espero que te sirvan de algo, saludos.

Resonancia de la carrocería

Este fenómeno de "resonancia" se estudia en vibraciones y se produce sólo en una pequeña gama de frecuencias.

Una explicación sencilla de por qué a los soldados no se les deja desfilar marcando el paso en los puentes es porque una estructura como un puente tiene una frecuencia propia de vibración y si coincidiese con la frecuencia de marcar el paso se podría producir un fenómemo de "resonancia" (que podría causar la destrucción del puente).

En algunos coches si aceleráis poco a poco el ralentí podéis ver cómo se comporta la palanca de cambios. Veréis que a determinada frecuencia vibra más; es decir: entra en resonancia.

Espero que te valga
