IMPORTANCE OF ACOUSTICAL LEAKS IN PASSENGER CAR BODIES

In its treatment of acoustical leaks in passenger car bodies, this paper considers the general principle of noise control in a passenger compartment, the concept of acoustical leaks, examples of such leaks, and design guidelines for acoustical isolation. The guideleines include elimination of unnecessary holes in the body sheet metal; relocation of necessary holes to less critical areas; minimization of trim intersections and avoidance of alignment of body shell holes with trim intersections.
