Engine Testing: Theory and Practice by Michael James Plint, Tony Martyr

By Michael James Plint, Tony Martyr

This e-book brings jointly the big and scattered physique of knowledge at the idea and perform of engine trying out, to which any engineer accountable for paintings of this sort should have entry. Engine checking out is a primary a part of improvement of latest engine and powertrain structures, in addition to of the amendment of current platforms. It varieties an important a part of the sensible paintings of many automobile and mechanical engineers, within the automobile production businesses, their providers providers, expert engineering companies agencies, the motor activity region, hybrid autos and tuning region. The eclectic nature of engine, powertrain, chassis and full car checking out makes this finished e-book a real must-have reference for these within the automobile in addition to extra complicated scholars of automobile engineering.

10a then a pit is required, cast to support a concrete block that sits on a mat or pads of a material such as cork/nitrile rubber composite which is resistant to fluid contamination (Fig. 11, may be installed. 11 Seismic block or cast bedplate (not shown) (4) mounted on air springs (3) within a shallow concrete pit (2) on consolidated subsoil (1). When the air supply is off the self-levelling air springs allow the block to settle on support blocks (5) the rise and fall typically being 4 to 6 mm.

A note on documentation Test cells and control room electrical systems are, in the nature of things, subject to detailed modification during the build and commissioning process. The documentation, representing the ‘as-commissioned’ state of the facility, must be of a high standard and easily accessible to maintenance staff and contractors. The form and due delivery of documentation should be specified within the functional specification and form part of the acceptance criteria. Subsequent responsibility for keeping records and schematics up to date within the operator’s organization must be clearly defined and controlled.

The two outer octaves are rarely used in noise analysis. 13 Fletcher–Munson curves of equal loudness Noise measurements Most instruments for measuring sound contain weighted networks which give a response to frequency which approximates to the Fletcher–Munson curves. In other words, their response to frequency is a reciprocal of the Fletcher–Munson relationship (Fig. 13). For most applications the A-weighting curve gives satisfactory results and the corresponding SPL readings are given in dBA. B- and C-weightings are sometimes used for high sound levels, while a special D-weighting is used primarily for aircraft noise measurements, Fig.
