Measurements and SEA Modeling of the Sound Transmission of Ribbed-stiffened Panels 2006-01-2551

Nowadays, acoustic comfort is an important consideration in the design and operation of airplanes. In this context, an alternative approach, Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) allows the study of energy diffusion in vibro-acoustic systems in mid and high frequency regions. This present study aims to describe the vibro-acoustic characterization of a structure similar to an aircraft fuselage. Several SEA models were considered to compare the analytical formulations found in the literature with measurement data. Two classes of the panels were investigated: simple and ribbed-stiffened. In this regard, the revised model for computing the coupling loss factors was evaluated and the results gave a good agreement with measured data.
