Active Feedback-Controlled Boom Noise Damping/Absorption in a Large SUV

Large vehicles, such as SUVs (Sport Utility Vehicle) and minivans, exhibit body boom phenomena during multiple source excitation events including rough road/impact and powertrain induced events. The main cause of the boom is the low-frequency acoustic/vibro-acoustic modes of the cavity being excited via the high acoustic transfer functions at multiple paths, due to an inherently […]

Active Vibration Control Using Proof Mass (Inertial) Actuators

Proof mass actuators (PMAs) are used to add tuned damping and tuned dynamic absorption to test structure as well as the rear sub-frame of an all-wheel-drive vehicle. The choice of active vibration control strategy, with a PMAs as the actuator, depends on whether the PMA’s natural frequency is placed below or within the frequency(ies) of […]
