Tyre/road noise prediction: A comparison between the SPERoN and HyRoNE models, Part 1
Paper i proceeding, 2008
The SPERoN and HyRoNE models predict the pass-by tyre/road noise of a passenger car from intrinsic characteristics of the road surface. Both models are hybrid: they combine statistical laws with physical models. With a computing time of a few minutes (very quick compared to full physical models), they provide operational tools for tyre/road noise prediction. Particular fields of interest are road surface optimisation with respect to noise at the laboratory scale, conformity of production of a new surface and acoustic monitoring of roads. They are now implemented as user-friendly stand-alone applications. The presentation will address the principles of the models, their performances and their respective main fields of application. Part 1 will address the philosophy and the principles of the models.
