The designs of vehicle seats have significant impact on interior acoustic modes as well as sound pressure level inside the vehicles. Seats trimmed with elastic porous materials are especially critical to the acoustic behavior of the vehicles due to the sound absorption of the materials. This paper demonstrates how seating materials affect the acoustic performance of an earh-moving cab. To accurarely simulate the sound absorption of the seat, the seat was modeled as a bulk reactive absorber instead of a local reactive absorber.
