Establishment of the Specification Design Technique by Multiple-Purpose Optimization of Sound Proof Package 2007-01-1544

This paper describes an effective method with statistical energy analysis (SEA) for specifying the vehicle sound proof package that achieves the best balance between light weight and high sound insulation performance. For proposing the sound proof package in the early stages of vehicle development, it is necessary to assess a number of specifications and to pick the best design specifications for weight and sound proof performance. However, there are difficulties in achieving conflicting objectives simultaneously, and acoustic engineers need special technical know-how. In this study, a new automated optimization method is proposed that approaches the problem above. As a result, detailed sound insulation package specifications, including the thickness distribution of each part, can be obtained and these can be easily transferred to drawings. Moreover, the accuracy of this method is proven by a reduction in vehicle interior cabin sound pressure level
