Prediction Technology of Output Power and Intake-Exhaust Noise Using 1D-Simulation for Small-Displacement Motorcycles 2010-32-0004
Using a 1D simulation that transforms the 3D shape of intake-exhaust systems into one dimension and calculates the thermodynamics and fluid gas dynamics of internal combustion engines, a prediction technology of the output power and intake-exhaust noise for small- displacement single-cylinder motorcycles was established. Output power can be calculated accurately for various engines with different displacements and cooling systems by adjusting the boundary conditions in the calculation model. The intake-exhaust noise can be calculated accurately by clarifying some important points for accuracy when transforming the 3D shapes of the intake-exhaust system into the 1D model and by reflecting them in the calculation model. As for mufflers that have complicated internal structures, the calculation of exhaust-noise cannot be made with sufficient accuracy because 1D simulation does not calculate spatial flow behavior. But, improvement of accuracy is expected using a 1D-3D coupled simulation.
