Method Using Multiple Regression Analysis to Separate Engine Radiation Noise into the Contributions of Combustion Noise and Mechanical Noise in the Time Domain 2014-01-1678

A technique was created to separate the contributions of combustion noise and mechanical noise to engine noise in the time domain in order to achieve efficient measures for enhancing the sound quality of combustion noise.
There is an existing technique based on 1/3 octave band analysis that is known as a method for separating the contributions to engine radiation noise, but this technique cannot provide time-domain data.
Therefore, the author has proposed a technique that separates engine radiation noise into combustion noise and mechanical noise in the time domain by finding the combustion noise for each cylinder and calculating its structural response function by considering its real and imaginary components.
Results of analysis of actual engine radiation noise with this technique confirmed that combustion noise, which is characterized by strong pulsation, and irregular mechanical noise can be separated in the time domain with good precision. Moreover, the structural response function, combustion noise, and mechanical noise characteristics showed a valid changing trend in response to changes in cylinder pressure and structural specifications. This demonstrates the effectiveness of the technique.
