ACOUSTIC CHARACTERISTICS OF A CAR CAVITY AND ESTIMATION OF INTERIOR SOUND FIELD PRODUCED BY VIBRATING PANEL

The acoustic characteristics are determined by using a half size model. The acoustic resonances of the model compare favorably with those of an actual car. It is shown that by treating the body structure as an assemblage of a number of point sources, and determining the sound pressure transfer functions for various points on the body structure, the sound pressure level inside the car cavity can be determined with good accuracy. Using this technique, the source areas in a car body, which are major contributors to the total noise produced, can be identified.
