Experimental Evaluation of Wind Noise Sources: A Case Study 1999-01-1812

Several of the authors have recently developed procedures to efficiently evaluate experimentally the relative contributions of various wind noise paths and sources. These procedures are described and, as a case study, results are provided for the noise in the interior of a production automobile subjected to wind tunnel airflow.
The present measurements and analysis indicate that for the tested vehicle significant contributions to interior noise are provided by underbody and wheel well flows, radiation from the roof and seal aspiration. A significant tone associated with vortex shedding from the radio antenna was also noted.
