Correlation and Verification of a Tractor Cab Model Using Statistical Energy Analysis 2018-01-0142

A model of a tractor cab was built using Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) best practices. In this paper, it is shown how this model was correlated using p/Q transfer functions measured in the lab with a volume velocity source. After correlation, the model was excited using acoustic loads measured during tractor operation. It was found that the data predicted by the model is in good agreement with the data measured inside the cabin during this test. It was concluded that SEA can be used as an engineering tool to predict the behavior under many different conditions and can be used to guide the development process.
