A calculation methodology to solve the one-dimensional governing equations system is presented. This calculation methodology is based on the Independent Time Discretisation (ITD) of the ducts composing the system. The purpose is the improvement of the trade-off between the accuracy and the computational cost that the current 1D gas dynamic models can yield. The ITD methodology is applied to the specific problem of noise prediction in internal combustion engines in order to evaluate its performance in the frequency domain. The application of the ITD methodology to the well-known acoustic configurations which are representative of the main attenuation mechanisms in commercial mufflers shows its ability. The potential is evaluated in terms of reduction of the computational cost and the accuracy and robustness provided by the results as a function of the spatial mesh size and the family of finite difference numerical method applied. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
