Powertrain Acoustic Characterization at High Frequencies: Acoustic Source Modeling Based on Sound Intensity Measurements 2003-01-1457
Predicting the propagation of air-borne noise radiated by the powertrain at high frequencies requires acoustic power data for source modeling. This paper proposes a new model of source based on an acoustic intensity mapping in an anechoic test-bench. Given an energy propagation model, it is possible to back-propagate acoustic intensity data to a model of powertrain, by solving an inverse problem. Application of the method to a 2.0L gasoline powertrain has led to convincing results between 500 and 5,000 Hz, and most of the radiation patterns of the powertrain are well represented in space and frequency.
