Abstract

A straightforward method is presented to model the behavior of an elastically supported engine attached to a rigid or a flexible structure. The proposed suspension optimization approach seeks to minimize passenger's perception of noise and vibration inside vehicles. It allows designers to model structure borne noise generated by the engine.
