Analysis of structure-borne noise and structural dynamic modification 2000-05-0300
Faced with the challenge to improve vehicle quality and reduce the development cycle for new product, experimental and/or analytical approach have been used to assure improvements in vehicle NVH performance. Prediction of dynamic characteristics is the most important factor to shorten development time. In order to predict car interior noise at the pre-design stage, a total vehicle without chassis parts and its cavity are fully modeled by finite elements. To reduce FE model generation time and get more effective design modification index, hybrid model combining FE data and experimental data is used. In this paper, the hybrid modeling based on FBS technique is used for identifying substructure contribution and modification. Driving force is also acquired by powertrain test. To verify this model, a passenger car is tested and compared with analysis data.
