Abstract: An investigation was undertaken which was aimed at studying the effect of exhaust silencer systems on the noise and power output of a single cylinder two stroke engine. The theoretical design methods available were first studied. This led to the construction of an experimental silencer the characteristic parameters of which could be varied. Experiments were then carried out on the variations of noise, power output, specific fuel consumption and delivery ratio with engine speeds for variations in the silencer parameters. Pressure-time histories near the exhaust port for various exhaust systems and their effect on engine performance were also investigated.
