Statistical Energy Analysis for Road Noise Simulation 971972

Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) is being actively pursued in the automotive industry as a tool for vehicle high frequency noise and vibration analysis. A D-class passenger car SEA model has been developed for this purpose. This paper describes the development of load cases for the SEA model to simulate road noise on rumble road.
Chassis roll test with rough shells was performed to simulate rumble road noise. Sound radiation from tire patch and vibration transmission through spindles were measured to construct the SEA load cases. Correlation between SEA model predictions and measured data was examined. Test and SEA result comparisons have shown that simulation of airborne road noise requires only a trimmed body SEA model, while simulation of structure-borne road noise may require SEA modeling of chassis components.
