  1. 1. Aeroacoustics Studies of Duct Branches with Application to Silencers

    Author : Mikael Karlsson; Mats Åbom; Luc Mongeau; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; silencer; muffler; confined flows; flow duct; aeroacoustics; vortex sound; acoustic multiports; linear stability; self-sustained oscillations; whistling; Herschel-Quincke tube; acoustic resonator; Fluid mechanics; Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : New methodologies and concepts for developing compact and energy efficient automotive exhaust systems have been studied. This originates in the growing concern for global warming, to which road transportation is a major contributor. READ MORE

  2. 2. A Wave Expansion Method for Aeroacoustic Propagation

    Author : Johan Hammar; Gunilla Efraimsson; Ciarán J. O'Reilly; Wim De Roeck; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sound propagation; Sound generation; Aeroacoustics; Aerodynamics; Computational fluid dynamics; Computational aeroacoustics; Numerical methods; Lighthill; Curle; Ffowcs Williams and Hawkings; Frequency-domain propagation; Wave expansion method.; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : Although it is possible to directly solve an entire flow-acoustics problem in one computation, this approach remains prohibitively large in terms of the computational resource required for most practical applications. Aeroacoustic problems are therefore usually split into two parts; one consisting of the source computation and one of the source propagation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Aeroacoustic Characterization using Multiport Methods

    Author : Andreas Holmberg; Hans Bodén; Mats Åbom; Susann Boij; Lars Enghardt; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Aeroacoustics; Multiport; Experiments; Computational Aeroacoustics; Mixer Plate; T-junction.;

    Abstract : Noise is a major environmental pollutant, which can inict physical and psychologicalinjury. An important noise contribution stems from aeroacousticsources, which are found in e.g., ventilation ducts, engine exhaust systems andairplane engines. READ MORE

  4. 4. An experimental and numerical study of an automotive cooling module

    Author : Anders Rynell; Gunilla Efraimsson; Michael Shur; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fan installation effects; spectral decomposition; aeroacoustics; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : Heavy vehicles are major emitters of noise. Especially at idle or low vehicle speeds a large portion of the noise emanates from the fan that forces the flow through the cooling module. The aim of this work is to investigate and reveal aerodynamic and acoustic installation effects linked to the cooling package. READ MORE

  5. 5. Centrifugal compressor flow instabilities at low mass flow rate

    Author : Elias Sundström; Mihai Mihaescu; Håkan Nilsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Centrifugal Compressor; Large Eddy Simulation; Internal Com- bustion Engine; Aeroacoustics; Modal Flow Decomposition;

    Abstract : Turbochargers play an important role in increasing the energetic efficiency andreducing emissions of modern power-train systems based on downsized recipro-cating internal combustion engines (ICE). The centrifugal compressor in tur-bochargers is limited at off-design operating conditions by the inception of flowinstabilities causing rotating stall and surge. READ MORE
