Wind Noise Transmission Loss for Separated Flow Conditions 2019-01-1469

The transmission of turbulent flow pressures through panels to the interior noise depends on the spatial matching of the pressure and vibration fields. Since the exterior pressure field on a moving vehicle includes both turbulent pressure and acoustic pressure, both need to be factored into a noise transmission loss calculation. However, these two exterior pressure fields have very different spatial patterns. This is further complicated when the exterior flow is separated from the surface due to an obstruction. This study uses wind tunnel and road tests to measure and model the wind noise transmission loss through the side glass of a vehicle. The results are seen to be very different from the traditional sound transmission loss curves for an acoustic pressure source.
