Abstract

In statistical energy analysis (SEA) modeling, it is desirable that the SEA coupling loss factors (CLFs) between two continuously connected subsystems can be estimated in a convenient way. A simple SEA modeling technique is recommended in that continuous coupling interfaces may be replaced by sets of discrete points, provided the points are spaced at an appropriate distance apart. Consequently, the simple CLF formulae derived from discretely-connected substructures can be applied for continuous coupling cases. Based on the numerical investigations on SEA modeling of two thin plates connected along a line, a point-spacing criterion is recommended by fitting the point- and line-connection data of the two plates. It shows that the point spacing depends on not only the wavelengths but also the wavelength ratio of the two coupled subsystems.
