In the society, Noise pollution created by engines becomes a vital concern when used in residential areas or areas where noise creates hazard. Issues concerning the design and use of large-scale silencers are more prevalent today than ever before. The main sources of noise in an engine are the exhaust noise and the noise produced due to friction of various parts of the engine. The exhaust noise is the most dominant.

The objective is to reduce the noise created by engines with the help of muffler designed for high transmission loss because Noise pollution created by engines becomes a vital concern in the society.

The Experimental Test Rig has been developed for measurement of Transmission Loss with either Two Source method or Two Load Method.

For the efficient utilization of solar energy, its concentration is required. Central Receiver system have higher concentration ratio as compared to other concentrated solar power techniques. The solar flux density distribution and the temperature on the receiver plate are important parameters to assess the peak flux and net thermal energy of any concentrated Solar Power Concentrator. The solar flux measurement of a ganged type solar heliostat system is measured by using a thermocouple method. This method is a simple method and gives a good visualization of the temperature distribution on the focus plate and hence can be very useful for collector and receiver design.
