A sequential FEM--BEM approach is employed to calculate the dynamic behavior and sound radiation of rotating wheels. The equations of motion for the wheel are developed in the frame of an Arbitrary Eulerian Lagrangian description with a time-independent formulation for steady state rolling and a spatial description of vibrations. The noise radiation caused by the vibration modes is computed by the symmetric hybrid boundary element method.
