Prediction of Engine Noise using Parameterized Combustion Pressure Curves 2007-01-2373
A parameterization for combustion chamber cylinder pressures is tuned to measurements on an inline 6 cylinder Diesel engine at different operating conditions. Both measured and modeled signals are filtered in the frequency domain and according to the so called Lucas attenuation. Two different estimates of engine radiated noise are obtained and compared in this fashion. The influence of physically meaningful parameters on the frequency contents of the final noise level is analyzed, as well as the contribution of the pressure trace of the motored engine. The scattering of data in the pressure signal is calculated as a function of the crank angle allowing for statistical considerations.
