Abstract:
Reductions of noise in vehicle passenger compartments in recent years have made some previously undetectable noises audible. Expansion devices used in automobile air conditioning systems are known producers of noise. The fact that these devices are mounted very close to the passengers increases the problems associated with the reduction of this noise. The understanding of the propagation mechanisms from the noise generated in the refrigerant by the expansion device, through the tube and evaporator walls, and finally to the outside air is important. This paper will focus on how noise from expansion devices is transmitted through tube walls downstream of the expansion valve.
