Diesel impulsiveness (so called Diesel knocking) present in the cabin of diesel vehicles is perceived as unpleasant because of its impulsive time structure. JD Power data clearly show the customers preference of vehicles with little Diesel knocking over those with severe knocking. Corresponding objective descriptors that reflect the customers' perception are introduced.
The occurrence of such noise patterns is influenced by the combustion process itself as well as by all excited mechanical components within the power train. Further the transfer characteristics of the engine structure and various vehicle noise paths do contribute to a poor Diesel Sound Quality. It is essential that all these factors have to be considered in combination. This paper provides an overview about suitable methods and technologies, including Binaural Transfer Path Analysis and Synthesis. The potential of the approach is demonstrated by an example. Investigations are carried out on the complete vehicle and on the engine test bench, and principal improvements on engine level and on vehicle level are derived.
