Developing a diesel engine for a particular application comprises considerably more than getting the power, weight, physical dimensions and fuel consumption right. Two of the more-important ancillary considerations are cold starting ability and noise emission; the latter is becoming of even greater significance as engine specific powers and rotational speeds increase and legal limits are imposed on noise levels. Engine and chassis manufacturers rely heavily on specialised equipment producers to keep them on the right lines where these ancillary problems are concerned. This article describes recent work by the research and development staff of CAV Ltd concerning the problems of diesel engine cold starting and noise.
