Abstract:
Unexpected noise may occur around air intake manifold when the throttle valve is quickly opened. In order to solve this problem, mesh is often mounted into the air flow between the intake manifold and the throttle body. In this study the effect of mesh design on the noise reduction was investigated. Several designs of the mesh were tested with an actual automobile and the developed test equipment taking advantage of an intake manifold unit, and the noise attenuation was discussed with measuring the noise and observation of the mesh deformation. Based on those experiments, the mesh design for noise reduction was optimized. Furthermore integration of mesh and rubber gasket was examined. Finally, rubber mesh-gaskets which provide sealing and noise attenuation for air intake has been proposed in this study.
