The radiated sound power value is often used to evaluate the sound radiation of a machine or a product. Since its estimation requires the sound pressure on a surrounding surface of the radiating object, the sound power value is mostly computed under high numerical costs due to the acoustic field that has to be modeled. Therefore, approximations of the sound pressure are widely popular. In this article three common methods namely the equivalent radiated power, the lumped parameter model and an approximation based on the volume velocity are investigated. It is the goal of this paper to test these methods on realistic examples. The radiated sound power functions of the floor panel of a car and the radiation of a diesel engine under realistic load cases are estimated.
