Importance of Acoustical Leaks in Passenger Car Bodies 720507
In its treatment of acoustical leaks in passenger car bodies, this paper considers the general principle of noise control in a passenger compartment, the concept of acoustical leaks, examples of such leaks, and design guidelines for acoustical isolation.
The paper states that the basic problems can actually be designed into vehicles through lack of understanding of acoustical principle, and various examples are given in illustration. Remedies for some of these deficiences are also proposed. Finally, design principles formulated to eliminate acoustic leaks are presented.
