Development of a Fast Procedure for Vehicle Noise Source Quantification 2007-01-2277
The identification of the contributions of airborne noise sources in vehicles in operational driving conditions is still a cumbersome task. Whereas the measurement of the transfer path from possible noise sources to the observer ear locations is efficient and accurate in most conditions, the source strength identification is still a challenging task. This paper presents the basic concepts of a new source quantification technique based on acoustic pressure measurements close to the operating sources. The main goal of developing a new technique is to achieve a faster and more economic method as compared to existing methods.
