To control high frequency wind noise upper than 1 kHz is important to ensure the comfort for a driver and passengers when vehicles cruise at high speed. Therefore the prediction method for high frequency wind noise inside a cabin has been required for development of a vehicle. This paper describes about the prediction method for high frequency wind noise from numerical simulation results. In this study, wind noise caused by airflow around a front pillar is predicted. We have predicted wind noise by visualizing noise sources and pressure fluctuation on vehicle surfaces in recent years. Although an inferior-to-superior relationship can be predicted from these results, it was difficult to estimate quantitative interior noise level. In this research, the SEA code is examined to predict such noise level. The SEA code has confirmed showing a qualitative and almost quantitative consistency of measured and calculated SPL at the head area of a front passenger seat.
