Recently, the regulations of the government and the concerns of people have rise to the interest in noise pollution levels as compared to other vehicles. In this area, many researchers have studied to reduce this noise in the field of automotive engineering. This paper proposes an optimal design scheme to reduce the noise of the intake system by adapting Kriging with two meta-heuristic techniques. For this, as a measuring tool for the performance of the intake system, the performance prediction software, was used. Then, the length and radius of each component of the current intake system are selected as input variables and the orthogonal arrays is adapted as a space-filling design. With these simulated data, we can estimate a correlation parameter in Kriging by solving the nonlinear problem with a genetic algorithm and find an optimal level for the intake system by optimizing Kriging estimated with simulated annealing. We notice that this optimal design scheme gives noticeable results and is a preferable way to analyze the intake system. Therefore, an optimal design for the intake system is proposed by reducing the noise of its system.
