Estimation of the Noise and Vibration Response in a Tractor Cabin Using Statistical Energy Analysis 1999-01-2821
The purpose of this paper is to establish a method of predicting the noise and vibration of tractor cabins in the engine-idling state by using Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA). At first, an analytical model of a tractor cabin is constructed, and power flow equations are formulated for the tractor cabin. To solve these equations, SEA parameters are estimated experimentally and analytically. These parameters are the modal density, loss factor, coupling loss factor, and input power. With these parameters, the noise and vibration responses of the tractor cabin are calculated. Good agreements are found between the analytical and experimental data.
