Investigate the acoustic performance of a range of different muffler as typically used in automobile represent by different technique. Muffler performance with particular engine specification was conducted using the FEM method for typical muffler elements which was also correlated to experimental results. Different parameter selected for this study with significantly affected. A number of different muffler systems are tested and their acoustic performance predicted by sound measurement techniques. A number of parameters are investigated including diameter of main pipe, length of main pipe, length of tail pipe, flow, engine load.
