Content

The combustion engine is still the dominant source for interior noise of a vehicle. Therefore it is important that engines provide a certain sound quality to ensure product value and brand identification.

The lecture gives an outline on important aspects of sound engineering. In detail it covers the fundamentals of noise formation and perception as well as a description of modern measurement and assembly methods. Afterwards virtual engine development tools like FEM and their potential to modify the sound of an engine are discussed.

 

Topics

The following topics are dealt with:

  • Acoustic Fundamentals
  • Acoustic Behavior of Combustion Engines
  • Legal Regulations
  • Acoustic Assessment of Engine Concepts
  • Vehicle Interior Noise
  • Sound Quality
  • Simulation und Computation
