An Interactive Approach to the Design of an Acoustically Balanced Vehicle Sound Package

Roush Industries, Inc.-Richard E. Wentzel, Allan C. Aubert
Published 2007-05-15 by SAE International in United States
Each time a new vehicle is developed, engineers face the challenge to develop the ideal sound insulation package. The goal is to attenuate powertrain, wind and road/tire noise from entering the vehicle while complying with cost, weight and packaging constraints. The design process is greatly facilitated if the engineer has effective tools to rapidly quantify how various sound insulation components contribute to the overall NVH performance of the vehicle.This paper discusses how an interactive vehicle acoustical design tool can be developed that assists the designer in making rapid decisions as to how to balance the performance of the various sound package components. The acoustical design tool is unique for each vehicle, and must take into account design decisions such as type of powertrain, body style, and numerous other factors in order to correctly predict the performance of the total package. Any good modeling tool must also take into account inputs from a reasonable range of operating conditions.A very good model for the acoustical behavior of the vehicle can be developed using data from measurements madeā€¦

A Comparison of the Effectiveness of Elastomeric Tuned Mass Dampers and Particle Dampers

Roush Industries, Inc.-Allan C. Aubert, Edward R. Green, Gregory Z. Chen
Published 2003-05-05 by SAE International in United States
This paper presents a study and comparison of two methods commonly used to treat unwanted vibration in vehicles. Laboratory work was done to measure and compare the effectiveness of common designs for practical tuned mass dampers (TMDs) and particle dampers under a wide range of conditions. The relative strength and weaknesses of the two approaches are compared in their abilities to treat vibration in a system due to resonant modes and forced response. The effectiveness of each method is investigated as a function of the weight of the treatment, amplitude and temperature effects.

SEA for Design: A Case Study

Ford Motor Company-John T. Long, Robert E. Powell
MUG, llc.-Mark J. Moeller
Published 2003-05-05 by SAE International in United States
This paper reports on a case study involving the use of SEA methods in the acoustic design of an advanced design luxury sedan. The power of the analytical method was used to advantage in a case of a vehicle with very challenging NVH targets. Three practical issues are highlighted; review of a method to handle adding components that contribute acoustic absorption, presentation of data to aid vehicle content decisions, and design sensitivity analysis. This effort demonstrates an example in which SEA modeling provided relevant and timely input to the vehicle design team to aid decision making for sound package content.
