Development of a Lightweight Sound Package for 2006 Brand-New Vehicle Categorized as C 2006-01-0710

This paper describes an effective method of developing a soundproof package, which balances both light weight and high noise insulation performance. Since it is required to propose design of sound insulator in the early stages of the development, the hybrid statistical energy analysis (SEA) modeling method is applied, which is practical for high frequency analysis. Also an acoustic characteristic estimation technique of the multi layer structures is used. As a result of applying these effective methods, the 2006 brand-new vehicle categorized as C has enhanced in road noise quietness and decreased in weight as compared with the previous model.
