Diesel Engine Noise Control

This web seminar provides an in-depth overview of diesel engine noise including combustion and mechanical noise sources. In addition, the instructor will discuss a system approach to automotive integration including combining sub-systems and components to achieve overall vehicle noise and vibration goals.

What Will You Learn

By participating in this web seminar, you will be able to:
  • Identify and analyze commonly occurring diesel engine noise sources
  • Understand how analytical and experimental techniques can be used to solve diesel noise issues
  • Prescribe appropriate noise control analysis and solutions for specific diesel engine NVH issues

Is This Course For You

This course is ideal for those want to understand the root causes of many diesel engine noise issues, and how to use this understanding to better diagnose and control diesel engine-related noises.
