Application of a Laser Vibrometer for Automotive Aeroacoustic Analysis 972065

The Scanning Laser Vibrometer can make full field, high resolution measurements of the normal surface velocity of automotive door glass and sheet metal vibrations. These properties make the vibrometer a very useful tool for locating compliant and noisy areas on the surface of a vehicle, generated by exterior wind noise. An advantage of the vibrometer is that it measures the vibration of the surface, capturing the transfer of noise through the surface, rather than simply measuring the exterior wind noise.
Methods of experimental setup, testing, and problem analysis on outside rear view mirror/A-pillar/Sideglass configurations and body panel vibrations are discussed in the paper.
