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.

Learning Objectives
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

Who Should Attend
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.

Prerequisites
Those intending to take this web seminar should have at least a Bachelor's degree in engineering, or equivalent, and be familiar with basic engineering mechanics and vibrations.

Topical Outline
Session 1

  • The Basics of Diesel Engine Noise
  • Combustion Noise Forcing Functions
  • Combustion Mode Switching
  • Mechanical Forcing Functions in Diesels
  • Separating Combustion and Mechanical Noise Sources
  • Strategies for Reducing Forcing Functions
Session 2
  • Surface Radiated Noise
  • Exterior Covers: Radiated Sound and Simulation Modeling
  • Gear Train Noise Issues and Countermeasures
  • Drive-By Noise Contribution
  • Diesel Engine Design Considerations for Low Noise
  • Application Noise Issues

Instructor(s): Thomas Reinhart
Tom ReinhartThomas Reinhart is a Program Manager for NVH in the Engine, Emissions, and Vehicle Research division of Southwest Research Institute. Previous roles include Senior Manager for NVH at Visteon Chassis Systems, where Mr. Reinhart was responsible for the NVH analysis and development of axles, driveshafts, and power steering systems. From 2001 to 2004, he was NVH Program Manager at Roush Industries, Inc. where he was responsible for NVH testing and development of diesel and gasoline engines, as well as transmissions, axles and accessories. Diesel fuel system noise was a special focus of this work. Prior to Roush, he was Director of Noise & Vibration Technology at Cummins, Inc. Mr. Reinhart has been involved in solving noise and vibration issues in engines, as well as in a wide variety of engine applications, including pickup trucks, heavy duty trucks, construction equipment, and marine. Mr. Reinhart has developed noise reduction features for diesel engines, four of which have been patented. He has published 15 technical papers on Powertrain NVH topics. Mr. Reinhart received his B.S. and M.S. in mechanical engineering from Purdue University. He also spent a year studying automotive engineering at the Technical University of Hannover, Germany. His master's thesis focused on the application of acoustic intensity measurements to diesel engines.

Registration Information
Registration for this live web seminar is available on a per-person basis, similar to purchasing a seat in a classroom. Participants attend an online session from work or home; anywhere with a PC with internet access (at least 56K) and a telephone. The fee includes one connection to the conference calls (toll free telephone number provided for U.S. and select countries*) and assigned personal ID number; one connection to SAE's online training center (via WebEx); and access to a secure course in the SAE Learning Center that contains the presentations, class session recordings, supplemental materials, and assignments.

Registrations will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. the day before the start of the web seminar, but early registration is encouraged to allow for pre-course set-up and instructions.

*Global toll-free telephone numbers are provided for many countries outside the U.S., but are limited to those on the WebEx call-in toll-free number list. Check here to see if your country has a global call-in toll free telephone number for this web seminar. If your country is not listed, you may still connect using the US/Canada Call-in toll number or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).

Although WebEx Training Manager will automatically launch when you join the web seminar, you or your system administrator are encouraged to download the plug-in in advance to help ensure successful setup. Click here, then follow the onscreen instructions.

NOTE: The course presentation will be recorded and made available for 30 days to those who register by the deadline.

Multiple Seat Discount - Does your company have a group of employees who need this course? Register one individual at the appropriate member or list price, then register additional employees at half off the list price. Registration by phone with SAE Customer Service is required to take advantage of this discount. Register all individuals at the same time or mention the confirmation number for the first registrant. The offer is good for only the same web seminar offering. All registrants will receive a personal account and opportunity for CEUs.

Cancellations
Can't attend on the date/time above? The presentation will be recorded and made available for 30 days to those who are registered, regardless of availability for the live session. If you still need to cancel, transfer to a future offering, or designate a substitute, a full refund is issued if you notify SAE at least 14 days prior to the web seminar start date. If less than 14 days prior, please contact SAE Customer Service to discuss options*. NOTE: SAE reserves the right to cancel web seminar and cannot be held responsible for related costs incurred by registrants other than the registration fee.

*Cancellation penalties may apply.
