  1. 1. Modelling of IC-Engine Intake Noise

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Magnus Knutsson; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; IC-engine; intake noise; gas dynamics; linear source data; frequency domain; 2-port; losses; air cleaner unit; filter paper; flow; FEM; BEM; charge air cooler; narrow tube; TECHNOLOGY Engineering physics Acoustics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk fysik Akustik;

    Abstract : Shorter product development cycles, densely packed engine compartments and intensified noiselegislation increase the need for accurate predictions of IC-engine air intake noise at earlystages. The urgent focus on the increasing CO2 emissions and the efficiency of IC-engines, aswell as new techniques such as homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) mightworsen the noise situation.

  4. 4. Homogeneous Ignition - Chemical Kinetic Studies for IC-Engine Applications

    University dissertation from Combustion Physics, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Per Amnéus; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Skeletal mechanism; Mechanism reduction; n-heptane; iso-octane; formaldehyde; methane; Motors and propulsion systems; Motorer; framdrivningssystem; Physics; Fysik; Detailed chemistry; Kinetic calculations; Engine knock; Homogeneous charge compression ignition; HCCI; Fysicumarkivet A:2002:Amnéus;

    Abstract : Calculations on a Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) engine have been performed. Zero-dimensional models were used. The simplest model compressed the gas to auto-ignition, using temperature and pressure at a certain crank angle position obtained from engine experiments. READ MORE

  5. 5. Acoustic Characterization of Turbochargers and Pipe Terminations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Heiki Tiikoja; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; acoustical two-port; turbocharger; transmission loss; sound generation; compressor; turbine; IC-engine; inlet system; exhaust system; flow duct; duct termination; reflection coefficient;

    Abstract : In search for quieter engines there is a need for a better understanding of the acoustic properties of engine intake and exhaust system components. Besides mufflers which have the purpose of reducing pressure pulses originating from the internal combustion (IC) engine, there are many components in a modern car exhaust and intake system, e.g. READ MORE
