An Advanced Method for Developing Combustion Noise through the Analysis of Diesel Combustion 2013-01-1901
The source of the combustion noise of diesel engines was investigated in this paper. In the development of exhaust emission and combustion noise, we must optimize the injection parameters at the cell where engine noise can not be measured. To solve this problem, it is necessary to identify a method for developing combustion noise through in-cylinder pressure measurements. It is known that the combustion noise of a diesel engine is generated mainly in the phase of premixed combustion and depends on the rate at which the pressure increases. The combustion noise was analyzed by measuring the in-cylinder pressure and engine noise. Our results show that the combustion noise has a low correlation with the maximum rate of pressure increase. For this reason, a new index called the combustion noise index was developed based on the cylinder pressure level. This paper describes an advanced method for developing combustion noise and illustrates some examples of the results obtained.
