  • Publication number: 20140237991
    Abstract: An exhaust apparatus for a multi-cylinder engine which is capable of suppressing deterioration in ejector effect with a simple configuration comprises: a plurality of independent exhaust ducts each having an upstream end connected to an exhaust port of one cylinder or exhaust ports of two or more cylinders which are non-successive in terms of exhaust order; and a merged portion configured to allow exhaust gas passing through each of the independent exhaust ducts to flow thereinto and formed to be gradually reduced in diameter toward a downstream side in an exhaust gas flow direction. The independent exhaust ducts are connected to an upstream end of the merged portion in such a manner that downstream ends thereof are bundled together. An O2 sensor is provided in the merged portion or a portion of an exhaust duct line downstream of the merged portion, to partially block an exhaust gas flow passage.

  • Publication number: 20130038485
    Abstract: A series of samples derived by fixed-frequency sampling of a received signal are processed to detect (local) maximum-value and minimum-value samples. For each of the maximum-value samples, a corresponding reference value and a corresponding group of samples are derived. The reference value is set higher than that of a minimum-value sample which adjoins the maximum-value sample, and the corresponding group consists of successively adjacent samples including the maximum-value sample, each having a higher value than the reference value. The estimated time-axis position of a peak value of the received signal is obtained within the range of time-axis positions of the corresponding group.
