Computational acoustical models allow automated optimization of tractor design with respect to acoustic properties, which could speed up significantly the design process of tractor cabin prototypes. This article gives insightful prospectives to the tractor design process by considering modern computational acoustics technology. Mathematical formulation for a system consisting of vibrating elastic tractor structure and airfilled acoustic enclosure are given and a related numerical solution technique with finite element method (FEM) is presented. Simulation results produced with commercially available software are reviewed.

Airaksinen, Tuomas; Pennanen, Anssi; Toivanen, Jari (Elsevier, 2009)A physical damping is considered as a preconditioning technique for acoustic and elastic wave scattering. The earlier preconditioners for the Helmholtz equation are generalized for elastic materials and three-dimensional ...
Airaksinen, Tuomas; Heikkola, Erkki; Pennanen, Anssi; Toivanen, Jari (Elsevier, 2007)A preconditioner defined by an algebraic multigrid cycle for a damped Helmholtz operator is proposed for the Helmholtz equation. This approach is well suited for acoustic scattering problems in complicated computational ...
Airaksinen, Tuomas; Heikkola, Erkki; Toivanen, Jari (World Scientific Publishing, 2011)A numerical method for optimizing the local control of sound in a stochastic domain is developed. A three-dimensional enclosed acoustic space, for example, a cabin with acoustic actuators in given locations is modeled ...
Airaksinen, Tuomas; Heikkola, Erkki (University of Jyväskylä, 2010)Shape optimization of a duct system with respect to sound transmission loss is considered. The objective of optimization is to maximize the sound transmission loss at multiple frequency ranges simultaneously by adjusting ...
Airaksinen, Tuomas; Heikkola, Erkki (Acoustical Society of America, 2011)This paper considers the combined use of a hybrid numerical method for the modeling of acoustic mufflers and a genetic algorithm for multiobjective optimization. The hybrid numerical method provides accurate modeling of ...
