Experimental Assessment of Wind Noise Contributors to Interior Noise 971922

Wind noise reaches the interior of a vehicle through a variety of mechanisms including: aerodynamic excitation of vibration and reradiation from the greenhouse surfaces; acoustic transmission through door seals including gaps and glass edge leaks, and due to airborne transmission of noise generated by wind interaction with body panels. This paper presents experimental results that quantify contributions to interior noise from individual greenhouse surfaces and from airborne sources on the underbody. The measurements were carried out on a production vehicle in a wind tunnel. Greenhouse surfaces, in addition to the driver window are important contributors to interior noise along with airborne transmission of noise generated due to the flow over and through the vehicle underbody.
