High Frequency Vibro-Acoustic Analysis Using Energy Finite Element Method 2009-01-0771

As an alternative method to Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA), Energy Finite Element Method (EFEM) offers several unique advantages for vibro-acoustic analysis of structural-acoustic systems. In this paper, the theory of the energy finite element method is overviewed. The main developments of a recently available EFEM code are presented. This is followed by the investigation of several example problems using EFEM; (a) the acoustic pressure computation in an acoustical duct, (b) the sound transmission loss of an automotive dash, and (c) the vibro-acoustic analysis of a truck cab. The EFEM predictions are compared to the analytical solutions, SEA predictions or test data and good correlations are observed. Further, the advantages of EFEM in the solution of high and middle frequency vibro-acoustic problems are discussed.
