A Vibro-Acoustic Finite Element Method (FEM) model capable of calculating the transient sound pressure generated by the door slam of a vehicle was developed in this study. A design sensitivity analysis (DSA) was performed for investigating the effects of major design variables on the related sound quality metrics. The methodology was developed using a sedan-car and its FEM model. This paper shows that a Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) model can be used as a rather powerful tool for giving design change decisions for the door components from sound quality point of view during vehicle body development according to psychoacoustic parameters.
