SAE 2015 Noise and Vibration Conference and Exhibition

Technical Session Schedule

Wednesday, June 24

SEA (Statistical Energy Analysis) Design
(Session Code: NVC601)

Room Grand Gallery Room D  10:00 a.m.

This session provides a good overview of recent innovations to SEA modeling techniques. SEA models can be used alone or together with hybrid analytical or experimental techniques to establish good comparative NVH predictions at the earliest stage of the vehicle design process. The papers of this session will describe recent advances and / or validations of SEA theory, applications, or use in conjunction with hybrid techniques for high- and mid-frequency NVH predictions.

Organizers - Mark Moeller; Chadwyck Musser, ESI US R&D; Jian Pan, Autoneum North America Inc.; Alan Parrett, General Motors Co.
