The purpose of this thesis is to understand the characteristics of noise attenuation of a diesel engine block, by means of setting up a structural attenuation model and exploring the impact of variations of the model, in terms of nonlinearities. A model motivated by a set of experimentally-determined attenuation measurements was constructed, validated and explored for the potential for sound power prediction, with the aid of simulation.
