EXPERIMENTAL ANALYSIS OF EXHAUST NOISE USING A MUFFLER AND A PARTICULATE TRAP IN A DIESEL ENGINE

2017 RASAYAN Journal of Chemistry  
The control of the engine exhaust noise by a particulate trap for a diesel engine is investigated. Adequate theoretical background about the sound waves and engine noise is provided with a brief discussion on the sources of engine noise, exhaust noise generation and the principle of suppression. The experimental work comprises of design and development of the particulate trap for the given engine to control the exhaust noise level. The noise level reduction is also studied using a muffler.
