Development and Experimental Evaluation of a Vehicle Structural-Acoustic Trimmed-Body Model

A structural-acoustic finite-element model of an automobile trimmed-body is developed and experimentally evaluated for predicting body vibration and interior noise for frequencies up to 200 Hz. The structural-acoustic model is developed by coupling finite element models of trimmed-body structure and the passenger-compartment acoustic cavity. Frequency-response-function measurements of the structural vibration and interior acoustic response for shaker excitation of a trimmed body are used to assess the accuracy of the structural-acoustic model.
