Beresnev, A. and Beresnev, M., "Vibroacoustic Method of IC Engine Diagnostics," SAE Int. J. Engines 7(1):1-5, 2014, doi:10.4271/2014-01-0282.
The article provides the rationale for, and describes a new internal combustion engine (ICE) diagnosing method, which involves obtaining a signal within the audio frequency range and its examination together with engine performance through the use of algorithms of high resolution time-and-frequency analysis and techniques involving partial signal reconstruction in the phase space.Examples of how the method may be applied to reveal defects and faults of various units and systems are also described in the article. The paper shows that the method may also be used for other assemblies and units of cars (apart from engines) to analyze patterns for periodic wave structures.
