Analysis of Noise Levels in Typical Passenger Cars
2. Materials and Methods
- Model—X3 G01, standard version;
- Type of fuel—diesel;
- Engine power—125 kW;
- Displacement—1995 dm3;
- Engine fueling mode—normal;
- The vehicle could not be loaded during the test;
- During the test, the vehicle should be disconnected from trailers (semi-trailers); this does not apply to inseparable vehicles;
- Before the test, the vehicle’s engine was brought to its normal operating temperature.
- If the vehicle’s cooling system was equipped with an automatically actuated blower, the system would operate normally during measurement;
- If the diesel engine of the vehicle was equipped with a fuel enrichment system, the lever of this system would be set to the “no load” position;
- The test vehicle was to be placed in the middle of the test area with the drive system in neutral position and the clutch and parking brake engaged.
- Measurement A—measurement of the noise level from the exhaust system at idle speed;
- Measurement AA—measurement of the noise level from the exhaust system at maximum engine revolutions (75% of rotational speed);
- Measurement B—measurement of the noise level at the front of the vehicle at idle speed;
- Measurement BB—measurement of the noise level at the front of the vehicle at maximum engine speed;
- Measurement C—measurement of the noise level above the engine compartment at idle speed;
- Measurement CC—measurement of the noise level above the engine compartment at maximum engine speed;
- Measurement D—measurement of the noise level inside the vehicle at idle speed;
- Measurement DD—measurement of the noise level inside the vehicle at maximum engine speed;
- Measurement E—measurement of the noise level 200 mm away from the vehicle at idle speed;
- Measurement EE—measurement of the noise level 200 mm away from the vehicle at maximum engine speed;
- Measurement F—measurement of noise level 4000 mm away from the vehicle at idle speed;
- Measurement FF—noise level measurement 4000 mm away from the vehicle at maximum engine speed.
