The main purpose of this work is to develop a single vehicle noise emission model that uses speed as input variable and returns as output a parameter directly referable to the noise source, namely the source sound power level (Lw). The model was tested on three light-duty vehicles with different motorizations: Diesel, gasoline and gasoline-electric hybrid. Field measurements were conducted on a straight road and for different speed values (10-90 km/h). The influence of the engaged gear on the noise at different constant speed values was also explored for gasoline and diesel vehicles using one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). Results revealed that the source power level emitted by different typologies of cars against speed followed significantly different trends, more evident at speeds lower than 40 km/h. In such cases, the contribution of the engine on the noise is prevalent and ANOVA test confirmed that the gear choice influenced the noise at low speeds. At higher speed values such difference disappears.

Abstract

The main purpose of this work is to develop a single vehicle noise emission model that uses speed as input variable and returns as output a parameter directly referable to the noise source, namely the source sound power level (Lw). The model was tested on three light-duty vehicles with different motorizations: Diesel, gasoline and gasoline-electric hybrid. Field measurements were conducted on a straight road and for different speed values (10-90 km/h). The influence of the engaged gear on the noise at different constant speed values was also explored for gasoline and diesel vehicles using one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). Results revealed that the source power level emitted by different typologies of cars against speed followed significantly different trends, more evident at speeds lower than 40 km/h. In such cases, the contribution of the engine on the noise is prevalent and ANOVA test confirmed that the gear choice influenced the noise at low speeds. At higher speed values such difference disappears.
