Statistical energy analysis (SEA) computes the flow of vibrational energy between coupled subsystems by applying principle of conservation of energy. Using conservation of energy power balance equations which govern response of a system. Since it is based on energy flow, path analysis is straight forward. In this article it is described how to extract the dominant path in a complex model using SEA and VA One . As a result the subsystems in the dominant path are displayed in the 3d window (All other subsystems are hidden).
