Knowledge of the acoustic source characteristics of internal combustion engines (IC-engines) is of great importance when designing the exhaust duct system and its components to withstand the resulting dynamic loads and to reduce the exhaust noise emission. Number of studies has been published earlier on the low frequency in-duct exhaust noise of high speed engines. The goal of the present study is to investigate the medium speed IC-engine acoustic source characteristics numerically and experimentally not only in the low frequency - plane wave range but also in the high frequency range. The low frequency acoustic source characteristics were predicted by simulating the acoustic multi-load measurements using a one-dimensional process simulation code. The engine model used in the one-dimensional process simulations was validated with measurements. In this study, it is shown that the low frequency in-duct exhaust noise of a medium speed IC-engine can be predicted quite accurately by using a onedimensional process simulation code. The high frequency source data is estimated by averaging the measured acoustic pressures with different methods. According to this study, using the simple cross spectra averaging method instead of two microphone method to estimate the induct downstream acoustic power of medium speed IC-engine exhaust noise seems promising. The simulation of the high frequency exhaust noise is beyond this study.
