Development of Trimmed Body Model for Noise and Vibration

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.16 No.1


Modeling Technology for a trimmed body that can predict noise and vibration with short computation time and high accuracy was developed. In order to reduce the total degrees of freedom, parts that exert only a small influence on the acoustic characteristics were simplified from shell elements to concentrated mass models. The acoustic significance of trim parts was determined both experimentally and computationally. Also, Automated Multi-Level Substructuring (AMLS) was applied resulting in significant reduction in computation time. Finally, the trimmed body prediction results agreed closely with experimental data.
