The acoustic power reduction method can be used to design a quiet structure. To calculate the acoustic power radiated from a vibrating structure, the dynamic responses have to be determined. It is not easy to analyse the structure composed of the corrugated panels because of the structural complexity and the long analysing time. To make up for these defects, the equivalent orthotropic panel is presented. Also the acoustic power prediction method of the vibrating structures is proposed. As examples, the equivalent material properties of the corrugated plates are obtained and the acoustic powers of the floor structure are calculated at several frequency regions for the Korean High Speed Train.
