Shin, T., Jin, J., Lee, S., and Jung, I., "Study for the Radiated Noise from Engine Depending on Assembly Condition," SAE Technical Paper 2017-01-1843, 2017.
This paper presents the influence of radiated noise from engine surface according to assembly condition between the engine block and oil pan. At the first, the force exciting the main bearing of cylinder block is calculated by using a multi-body dynamics model of the engine crankshaft. Secondly, the modal analysis is processed to obtain the mode contribution and modal participation factors for the FEM of a virtual cylinder block. Thirdly, the radiated noise from a structure is calculated by acoustic-FEM analysis. This structure is assembled by the virtual oil pan with a rigid connection method and a soft connection method. The sandwich panel connection model is used for the soft connection method. The sound radiated from this assemble structure is calculated according to two different connection properties respectively. The sound matrices for two results are compared using an objective method. Finally, the influence of the connection condition on the sound quality is investigated for the further research in a sound quality of the sound emitted by a real engine structure in a diesel engine.
