Acoustic enclosure design is a complex problem that involves the interaction of multiple components. Yet the present conventional approach uses a two-dimensional closed-form solution to evaluate transmission loss of acoustic wall. In this paper, Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) was first studied for simple cases of radiation efficiency, transmission loss, and flanking path calculations. The effectiveness of the SEA method for complex systems was then demonstrated through a practical design application to gas turbine enclosure. It was found that SEA was a useful tool for gas turbine acoustic enclosure design.
