Operational Acoustic Modal Analysis: Sensitivity-Based Mode Shape Normalisation
Nowadays Acoustic Modal Analysis often plays a significant role in the optimisation process of the acoustic parameters of all kinds of cavities, e.g. the interior of a car, a train, an airplane etc. A problem with the existing experimental Acoustic Modal Analysis techniques is that one has to use volume acceleration sources which interact with the acoustic system. The Operational Acoustic Modal Analysis (OAMA) technique doesn't suffer from this problem. An important disadvantage of the OAMA approach is that the estimated mode shapes are not correctly scaled. This scaling problem will be tackled in this paper. We will introduce a sensitivity based rescaling technique for the acoustic domain. Local volume changes of the cavity will make a correct estimate of the mode shapes possible. The technique will be validated by some simulations and experiments.
