SEA for Design: A Case Study 2003-01-1565

This paper reports on a case study involving the use of SEA methods in the acoustic design of an advanced design luxury sedan. The power of the analytical method was used to advantage in a case of a vehicle with very challenging NVH targets. Three practical issues are highlighted; review of a method to handle adding components that contribute acoustic absorption, presentation of data to aid vehicle content decisions, and design sensitivity analysis. This effort demonstrates an example in which SEA modeling provided relevant and timely input to the vehicle design team to aid decision making for sound package content.
