Abstract
ADRPM (Acoustic Detection Range Prediction Model) is a software program that models the propagation of acoustic energy through the atmosphere and evaluates detectability. ADRPM predicts the distance of detection for a noise source based on the acoustic signature of the source. In this paper the assessment of the acoustic signature which characterizes a vehicle is performed by the conventional Boundary Element Analysis (BEA), and by the Energy Boundary Element Analysis (EBEA). BEA is used for computing the radiated noise for the 1/3 octave bands up to 500Hz, and the EBEA is used for the remaining frequency range. By combining the conventional BEA (for low frequency) with the EBEA (for high frequency), it is possible to perform noise radiation computations over the entire frequency range in a seamless manner. Once the initial detection range is predicted, the main contributors to the acoustic detection are identified and their location on the vehicle is modified in order to assess the corresponding effect to the detectability.
