Abstract

In the transportation engineering field, the turbulent boundary layer over a structure is one of the most relevant sources of structural vibration and emitted noise. Wind tunnels are still one of the best options for vibroacoustic experimental analyses for this specific problem. However, it is also true that this experimental method is not always affordable, due to several limitations—settings hard to control, time and money consumption, discrepancies among laboratories—that wind tunnel facilities present. It has already developed different methodologies to address this necessity, most of them based on the use of loudspeakers or shakers. In this work, an existing numerical method, called the pseudo-equivalent deterministic excitation method (PEDEM), is further developed for the experimental purpose of reproducing the experimental structural response of a panel subjected to a turbulent boundary layer (TBL) excitation, by using an equivalent rain-on-the-roof excitation instead; different formulations are used for the application of this approximated TBL excitation. The experimental application of PEDEM, here called X-PEDEM, is validated by comparison with experimental results of two different panels analysed in two different wind tunnel facilities.
