Fast Broadband Curved Insertion Loss Simulation of an Inner Dash Insulator Using a Cylindrical Transfer Matrix Method Spectral Approach

Interac-Gerard Borello
Treves-Arnaud Duval, Mickael Goret
Published 2019-06-05 by SAE International in United States
Middle and high frequency vibro-acoustic simulation of complex shape insulators requires using 3D poroelastic finite elements. This can be applied to either the whole part (up to 2500 Hz maximum) or through singly curved pre-computed Insertion Losses (up to 5000 Hz maximum) to be introduced in large SEA or energy-based models. Indeed, a dependence of the Insertion Loss slopes of noise treatments following the curvature is observed both experimentally and numerically. Beyond frequency range limitations, poroelastic finite element simulations following all curvatures and thickness 3D maps typically take too much time of up to a few hours each. A cylindrical Transfer Matrix Method spectral approach significantly reduces the time for the calculation of singly curved Insertion Losses up to 10 kHz to only a few minutes. This simplifies enormously the SEA modeling effort enabling easier, more precise fully trimmed vehicle middle and high frequency vibro-acoustic simulations. A dash insulator Insertion Loss numerical validation case will be presented comparing the different methods.

Overview of the Experimental Approach to Statistical Energy Analysis

InterAC-Gerard Borello
Published 1997-05-20 by SAE International in United States
Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) is used to predict wide-bandwidth noise and vibration. That prediction may rely on parameters derived from theory or from test, which essentially means that there are two distinct approaches, analytical SEA and test-based SEA.The latter is the focus of this paper. Both theory and practice are reviewed, so that the current status of the method can be established. This review also provides some insight on what information can be extracted from the experiment, how the measurements must be conducted and how the results must be interpreted.Another important aspect of test-based SEA is its interaction with the more widely used analytical SEA method. It is demonstrated that both methods are complementary and that the analytical and test-based parameters can either be compared or mixed in a “hybrid” SEA,model. Benefits of the combined use of the methods are discussed.The discussions are supported by results obtained for automotive applications. This overview paper will provide the reader with an understanding of the method and its applications.
