Title: Meshless parametric modeling of vibroacousticsystems
A general modeling method, the so-called Spectro-Geometric Method (SGM), is discussedfor the vibroacousticanalysis of complex systems which are composed of a number of familiar constituent componentsin the forms of beams, plates, shells, acoustic spaces, etc.The coupling conditions between any two components are generally described in terms of continuous, partial or discrete joints with arbitrary characteristic parameters, thus allowing adequately modeling mostcoupling mechanisms encountered in industrial applications. The solution variable(s) on each component plate are analytically expressed as accelerated Fourier series expansions and the expansion coefficients are considered as the generalized coordinates to be determined using the Rayleigh-Ritz technique. The SGM model is essentially a parametric and meshless (or grid-free)modeling of complex vibroacoustic systems, and is more suitable for sensitivity studies and design optimization. Of equal importance, it can be easily used to obtain the results of statistical significance through properly taking into account model uncertainties and engineering and manufacturing errors. This method does not involve any artificial assumptions or intermediate/derivedvariables. The accuracy and reliability of the present model are demonstrated through numerical examples.
