Transient noise is a typical real-life noise problem. In order to develop efficient methods of dealing with it, the generating and transmitting mechanisms of transient noise radiating from a vibrating structure have been widely studied. The analytical methods used differ according to the properties of the excitation, structure, and acoustic environment. Focusing on plate-like structures, this paper provides an overview of commonly-used approaches to the analysis of structural transient vibration and sound radiation (TVSR). A general process for solving this type of problem is presented, together with suggestions for future work in this field.
