Santana, C., Barros, J., and de Almeida, H., "Analysis of Vibration and Noise of an Internal Combustion Engine by Application of Test and Experimental Analysis of the Frequency Spectrum," SAE Technical Paper 2013-36-0103, 2013, doi:10.4271/2013-36-0103.
The problems of vibration and noise from an internal combustion engine are common because of the wide variety of parts and components that make up an internal combustion engine. In recent years engines have evolved considerably in relation to the control of vibration and noise emitted, since these effects reduce the useful life of the internal components of the engine itself and, besides giving discomfort to the occupants of the vehicle. The objective of this work was to identify and describe the main sources of vibration and noise in an internal combustion engine. The methodology used in this work involved instrumentation of an internal combustion engine (Otto cycle), the experimental tests of the engine on a test bench and involved the application of analytical techniques for treatment and analysis of experimental data.
