dc.description.abstractAs the modern world became mechanized, the associated noise pollution was largely ignored, until recently. New interest in noise control and environmental protection has pinpointed the internal combustion engine as a prime noise polluter. It is therefore appropriate that muffler design and theory become suitable subjects for the college and graduate engineering student. But a search of the literature reveals no applicable lecture demonstration or basic laboratory experiments in this field. The project described herein attempted to fill the void with a muffler test-system and model mufflers. 1) The possible number of variables is reduced byen_US
