Silencer and muffler design is primarily accomplished via cut-and-try approaches in many industries. Noise issues are identified close to production and mufflers are designed and tested. In this workshop, a design process for mufflers is recommended. The steps that may be taken during the 1) clarification of task, 2) conceptual design, 3) detailed design, and 4) prototyping phases are outlined, and the process is demonstrated at each step for a cross-flow type muffler. It is shown that plane wave analysis is especially valuable in the conceptual design stage whereas numerical simulation is of greater value in the detailed design stage. Basics and tips for both plane wave analysis and numerical simulation are discussed. Measurement of transmission loss using the two-load method will be described and demonstrated using a transmission loss test bench.

This session is to present numerical and experimental work pertaining to noise due to flow around the vehicle body, such as flow-induced interior noise, flow over protrusions, sunroofs, windows, noise from ventilation systems, or flow noise in exhaust system. Papers on aerodynamics alone without sound are excluded. Numerical studies may include new models or models based on existing theory as long as they are adequately supported by experimental or theoretical verifications.

The purpose and orientation are to empower engineers to recognize and fully connect their innate hearing capabilities with interactive analytic tools to characterize, design and improve mobility-product sounds considering human perception. An overview differentiates sound quality engineering from general acoustics as historically practiced, introduces the scientific field of Soundscaping, and provides a thought-context for productive work. “Ear training” examples will be included for recognizing sound characteristics such as modulation, tonality not caused by pure tones, and various types, scales and superpositions of time-dependence. The workshop illustrates and trains the approach to issues by linking perception with technical measurements, including both conventional and psychoacoustic tools. As always, a CD of the presentation will be given out at the close of the Workshop.

A novel Metallic porous absorbing material has been studied in this work. This material is capable of providing similar or better sound absorption compared to the conventional porous absorbers, but with a robust and less degradable properties. Several configurations of the material have been tested inside an expansion chamber with spatially periodic area changes. Bragg scattering was observed in some configurations with certain lattice constants. A new way of characterizing the porous absorber from a simple Transmission loss measurement has been proposed. This Transmission loss measurement can be used to extract the complex effective sound speed and density, fundamental porous material properties. The experimental results were compared with Two-port theory and Finite elements method and a close agreement was found.

This paper presents the particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm to search about the optimum feedback controller gains for the active mount suspension, for the first time, to reduce the transmitted vibrations to the suspended mass placed over a structure. A mathematical model and the equations of motion of the structure system with an active mount suspension are derived and simulated using Matlab/Simulink software. The proposed PSO algorithm aims to minimize the acceleration of the suspended mass as the objective function with constraint of the actuator force. System performance criteria are evaluated in both the time and frequency domains in order to count the effectiveness of the proposed controller. The simulation results reveal that the proposed feedback controller gains tuned by PSO algorithm offer a significant improvement of the vibration isolation compared with both the passive and active mount controlled using the linear quadratic regulator (LQR).

In the present study by the University of Idaho Clean Snowmobile Challenge (UICSC) team, the necessity, history, and research of noise reduction strategies in two-stroke snowmobile exhaust is presented. Testing and design is discussed to show the decision making process of College Design Series (CDS) teams. The UICSC CDS team is comprised of mechanical, electrical, and computer engineers. The development from static to dynamic noise cancellation is explained as a proof of concept and to further demonstrate CDS design. The study presents math models that validate each noise reduction technique. The noise reduction includes both a mechanically active quarter-wave resonator (MAQR) and mechanically active Helmholtz resonator (MAHR). Viability is given for both design types. These are presented with supporting implementation data. Control for both resonator platforms is discussed. The relative effect of each technology is compared based off cost and packaging.

An important trend among vehicle NVH engineers is to produce the attractive engine sounds matching with a vehicle concept and engine performance. Recently customers have much more interests in their personal preferences and enjoying tuning their cars. The PESS(Personalized Engine Sound System) has been developed for making a unique and individual concept of a vehicle. The system helps customers make variety of engine sound in a single vehicle using active sound design technology. In this system, three different concept of engine sound has been defined-Dynamic, Sporty, and Extreme. Each of the engine sounds can be adjusted with a parameter that determines the timbre such as main orders, half orders, and high orders. In addition, the extent to the drivers stepping on the accelerator pedal has been used as a parameter to differ the sound response. An AVN application has been implemented that allows users to easily design those functions.

How to decrease noise and vibration exposure has been of interest for many years. Empirical data have verified that too high dose values can create multiple problems to a human body - often severe. Some years back, the European Machinery Directive has increased the responsibility for manufacturers and employers to make sure limits are complying with legislation. Classical technology often consists of passive solutions aiming at trying to cut back on noise and vibration levels. For low frequency, these methods are often lacking the needed performance especially if weight should be considered at the same time. A smart combination of passive and active techniques can make a real difference. Today, with possibilities for low cost and embedded electronics and the rapid development of new actuators, a vast range of applications are possible for this combined combat approach, with a financial advantage as well.

The accumulated damage that a product experiences in the field due to the variety of vibration stresses placed upon it will eventually cause failures in the product. The failure modes resulting from these dynamic stresses can be replicated in the laboratory and correlated to end use environment to validate target reliability requirements. This presentation will discuss which random profile is needed to simulate end use environment, how to combine multiple vibration environments into one, and how to use FDS to accelerate the test.

Active Noise Cancellation technology is widely used in automobiles to reduce engine harmonic noise. ANC systems require one or more microphones mounted in the cabin to monitor the harmonic noise level and provide feedback to the DSP algorithm. The ideal locations for the microphones are as close as possible to the passenger seating locations and away from any wind turbulence that can hit the diaphragm of the microphone. Excessive wind turbulence on the diaphragm can cause the ANC adaptive filter weights to be perturbed enough and cause audible ‘pumping’ type artifacts. For several practical reason it’s not always possible to control the location of the microphones and hence a DSP software and/or mechanical solution often needs to incorporated in the system. This paper will primarily address the DSP software solutions to detect wind turbulence noise in ANC microphones so appropriate counter-measures can be applied to eliminate the unwanted artifacts.
