Evaluation of Wind Noise Sources Using Experimental and Computational Methods 2006-01-0343
Experiment and CFD have been performed to clarify the distribution of wind noise sources and its generation mechanism for a production vehicle. Three noise source identification techniques were applied to measure the wind noise sources from the outside and inside of vehicle. The relation between these noise sources and the interior noise was investigated by modifying the specification of underbody and front-pillar. In addition, CFD was preformed to predict the noise sources and clarify its generation mechanism. The noise sources obtained by simulation show good agreement with experiment in the region of side window and underbody.
