Porous Materials FE Modeling Scheme Using Experimentally Measured Acoustic Impedance for Predicting Panel Sound Radiation 2009-01-0608
This paper describes the porous materials FE modeling scheme inside vehicle cabin using measured acoustic impedances to reduce the size of the matrices of the FE model while keeping the accuracy. The technique of measuring acoustic impedance using PU probe in a free field is introduced. Next, the surface acoustic impedance of the seat by the side of front is measured using this technique. And the vehicle cabin acoustic field is modeled by FEM using the measured surface acoustic impedance. For the accuracy verification of this model, the acoustic transfer characteristics inside vehicle cabin with and without the front seat are compared with the predicted and the measured transfer function. Moreover, finally the worth of this modeling method is considered.
