Design of a Hybrid Exhaust Silencing System for a Production Engine 2005-01-2349

A prototype hybrid exhaust silencing system consisting of dissipative and reactive components is designed based on the boundary element method (BEM) with a specific emphasis on its acoustic performance as evaluated relative to a production system. The outer dimensions of the prototype system are comparable to its production counterpart, which has two silencers connected by a pipe. The predicted transmission loss by BEM for the prototype is compared with the experimental results in an impedance tube for both the prototype and production hardware, providing a design guidance for the former. The sound pressure levels measured at the tailpipe exit during the engine ramp-up experiments in a dynamometer laboratory are presented to compare the two systems, providing the final assessment. The acoustic effect of the pipe connecting the two prototype silencers is also examined computationally, along with a discussion of the measured flow performance and the surface temperatures of silencers in both systems.
