EVALUATION OF DIESEL ENGINE PERFORMANCE WITH INTAKE AND EXHAUST SYSTEM THROTTLING. VOLUME I: TEXT AND APPENDIXES A THROUGH H
The diesel engine itself is an important source of diesel powered vehicle noise, and becomes dominant after proper treatment of intake/exhaust and cooling system noise at vehicle speeds below fifty miles per hour. An investigation is reported, in two volumes, to quantify the effects of intake and exhaust restrictions, and load-speed scheduling on the radiated noise from four diesel truck engines, produced by different manufacturers. Sound power measurements were made in an acoustically modified engine performance test cell. The noise associated with intake, exhaust, cooling and their respective ducting systems were appropriately abated to permit quantification of engine radiated noise. Exhaust emission data including temperature and performance data were also monitored. Portions of this document are not fully legible.
