Radiation Noise Analysis for Electric Scooter Swing-arm 2011-32-0650
Traditionally, a Boundary Element Method (BEM) is often used for a radiation noise analysis. In recent years, to define an infinite region, a Finite Element Method (FEM) that can use an infinite boundary condition has been developed. However, studies on the radiation noise analysis by the FEM are few.
Recently a number of an electric scooter has been increased. One of development issues is a radiation noise by a vibration of a wall surface of a swing-arm. In this paper, the vibration of the wall surface of the swing-arm is calculated, and a sound pressure level (SPL) of the radiation noise is calculated using a result of the frequency response analysis. And compare results of an experimental and an analytical sound pressure, its results were matched to within 5% error. Furthermore we used the method of this paper, proposed the model to reduce the radiation noise 10dB. Then we compare with the FEM and the BEM to verify the computation time and the mesh size.
