Application of Transient SEA for Vehicle Door Closure Sound Quality 2005-01-2433
Transient Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) is applied as an analysis technique and compared to measured data in this study. A transient SEA model for a door closure event is developed and compared to measured data to validate this model with measured acoustic and vibration responses. The validated model is then used to predict the effect of changes to component absorption, damping, stiffness, materials, and other properties. The basic theory of transient SEA and the transient SEA model used in the study are described, the validation between analytical model and measured data is shown, and the conclusions from the analysis of design changes to the vehicle components using this model are presented.
