Aeroacoustic and Acoustic Testing of Automobile Side Windows 960902

Several different automobile windows were tested for transmission of noise Bench-scale flow noise tests, full-scale wind tunnel flow noise tests, and acoustic tests were performed The windows tested were the front side windows of a Chrysler sedan The transmission of external airborne noise was measured in a hemianechoic chamber at the Chrysler Technical Center A loudspeaker was used as a white noise source The transmission of the white noise into the vehicle interior was measured Aeroacoustic or flow noise tests were performed in the Chrysler Wind Tunnel in Chelsea, Michigan The test car was placed in a 112 km/hour flow and the resulting flow-induced noise was measured in the vehicle interior Bench-scale flow noise tests were performed at the Cornell University Low Noise Wind Tunnel, using the same set of window constructions The paper describes the results of all three types of tests The bench-scale test data from the Cornell University Wind Tunnel correlated well with the corresponding data measured in the Chrysler wind tunnel
