KRYLOV, V.V., 2002. Simplified analytical models for prediction of vehicle interior noise. IN: Sas, P. (ed.). Proceedings of the International Conference on Noise and Vibration Engineering (ISMA 2002), Leuven, Belgium, 16-18 September 2002, vol. 5, pp. 1973-1980.
The present paper describes some preliminary results in the developing of simplified analytical models that
could be used as effective engineering tools for prediction and mitigation of vehicle interior noise. The
structural simplification is based on understanding the physics of both generation of predominant modes of
structural vibrations at particular frequencies and radiation of sound by vibrating surfaces into the vehicle
interior. It is expected that the proposed approach will lead to the development of effective analytical tools
that could be suitable for use on a design stage.
