Vibro-acoustique statistique : Etude des hypothèses de la SEA

Abstract : Statistical energy analysis is a statistical approach of vibroacoustics which allows to describe complex systems in terms of vibrational or acoustical energies. ln the high frequency range, this method constitutes an alternative to bypass the problems which can occur when applying deterministic methods (computation cost due to the large number of modes, the large number of degrees of freedom and the unicity of the solution). But SEA has numerous assumptions which are sometimes forgotten or misunderstood ln this thesis, foundations of SEA have been examined in order to discuss each assumption. Diffuse field, modal energy equipartition, weak coupling, the influence of non-resonant modes and the rain on the roof excitation are the five look up hypotheses. Based on simple examples (coupled oscillators, coupled plates), the possible equivalences and their influence on the quality of the results have been discussed to contribute to the clarification of the useful SEA assumptions and to mark out it's the validity domain.
