Incorporating Layered Acoustic Trim Materials in Body Structural-Acoustic Models 951307

A fully analytical method for the evaluation of noise reduction in a vehicle interior furnished with layered acoustic trim is presented. The method combines calculation of trim Transmission Loss (TL) and Absorption Coefficient with a Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) calculation of trimmed panel Noise Reduction (NR). This allows for the evaluation of the trim package performance in real operating conditions and ranking of the different air-borne and structure-borne transmission paths.
