Measurement of Aeroacoustically Induced Door Glass Vibrations Using a Laser Vibrometer 951331
Work has been performed to study side glass vibrations of a typical automobile using a scanning laser vibrometer. The objective of this work was to achieve better understanding of the source and path mechanisms for aeroacoustically generated wind noise. As a tool for measuring aeroacoustically generated vibrations, the laser vibrometer presents many advantages over traditional methods. These advantages, discussed in this paper, include rapid setup, full field imaging, high spacial resolution, non-contact operation, and wide dynamic and frequency ranges.
