This presentation is dedicated to Curt Holmer's contribution to acoustics at Ford Motor Co. The presentation material is based on the work he was involved with during the last part of his life. The results of the 1992 Taurus SEA model are used to assess the effect of an aluminum body structure. The noise performance comparison includes airborne and structure-borne paths. The effect of structural damping is also simulated.
