Abstract

Dynamical Energy Analysis (DEA) is a mesh-based high frequency method for modelling structure borne sound in complex built-up structures. Vibro-acoustic simulations are performed directly on finite element meshes, circumventing the need for re-modelling strategies. DEA provides detailed spatial information about the vibrational energy distribution within a complex structure in the mid-to-high frequency range. We will present here progress in the development of the DEA method towards handling complex FE-meshes including Rigid Body Elements and sound radiation. We also provide, for the first time, a detailed comparison of the simulations with measurements on a complex engineering structure consisting of the chassis and cabin of a tractor. Both structure borne vibrations and sound pressure levels (SPL) inside the cabin were considered. For the latter, a combined DEA/SEA analysis has been developed. The simulation results compare favourably with measurement results, both for vibration levels measured across the structure and for SPLs inside the cabin.
