From Body in White to Trimmed Body Models in the Low Frequency Range: a New Modeling Approach 2007-01-2340

This paper describes a new approach for modeling a trimmed vehicle body by blending FEA models of the BIW, the passenger compartment and each individual trim component. The approach bases on the update of modal matrices, transforming the untrimmed body-cavity modal representation into an updated modal model including the effect of the trim configuration on the local and global NVH indicators.
Results on simple and more realistic models are presented and show that the methodology fulfills the efficiency and accuracy criteria and is thus to guide the NVH development process.
