Operating Noise Synthesis on a Class 8 Truck Cab 2007-01-2428

The objective of this work was to synthesize the time and space average operating airborne noise excitation field from discrete noise sources, to the exterior surfaces of a Class 8 truck cab while operating fully loaded at 60 mph. This noise field was subsequently used as input to a statistical energy analysis (SEA) model, for designing a sound package to reduce interior noise. As a relatively simple and inexpensive alternative approach to direct measurements using a heavy-duty chassis dynamometer in a semi-anechoic chamber, the method nevertheless provided an acceptable input for the SEA development work.
