Designing Quiet Structures: A Sound Power Minimization by Gary H. Koopmann,John B. Fahnline

By Gary H. Koopmann,John B. Fahnline

This ebook is the 1st of its style. It offers the reader with a logical and hugely quantitative technique of together with noise as a parameter within the early layout levels of a desktop or constitution. the original and unified method builds upon the common disciplines of acoustics, structural dynamics and optimization. It additionally exemplifies the artwork of simplification - the essence of all sturdy engineering layout.

Strategies for designing quiet buildings require broad analytical and experimental instruments. For computing the sound strength from complicated buildings the authors suggest a brand new 3D, lumped parameter formula. This totally built, common application will be utilized commonly to noise-control-by-design difficulties. exact directions for working the appliance are given within the appendix in addition to numerous pattern difficulties to aid the person start.

The authors additionally describe a brand new device: a especially built resistance probe used to degree a structure=92s acoustic floor resistance. to illustrate, the method is printed for measuring the valve hide of an inner combustion engine. certainly, through the publication the reader is gifted with genuine experiments, numerical and actual that they could reflect of their personal laboratory.

This is a must have e-book for engineers operating in industries that come with noise regulate within the layout of a product. Its sensible and didactic strategy additionally makes it very best to graduate students.

  • First textual content masking the layout of quiet structures
  • Written via of the prime specialists on the planet within the quarter of noise control
  • Strong in its integration of structural dynamics, acoustics, and optimization theory
  • Accompanied by way of a working laptop or computer software that permits the computation of sound power
  • Presents a number of purposes of noise-control-by-design tools in addition to equipment for enclosed and open spaces
  • Each bankruptcy is supported via homework difficulties and demonstration experiments
