Practical Approach to Sound and Vibration Troubleshooting
This course will provide a strategy and understanding of the methods and tools typically utilized to solve product noise and vibration problems. The instructor will review the important factors that drive noise and vibration measurements including meeting standards, and improving product quality, product competitiveness and product reliability.
The course follows the work completed in the course Fundamentals and Basic Measurements of Sound and Vibration and describes more advanced techniques of acoustic measurements including sound quality, sound power, sound intensity and array analysis, and likewise, more advanced techniques for vibration measurements including modal analysis and order analysis. A structured approach and associated techniques for identifying the source of noise and vibration issues are presented with related case studies. Noise control techniques and the application of materials to reduce and “shape” sound at the source and along the path are described.
The course is directed toward engineers, technicians and managers who are looking to start applying solutions to their noise and vibration issues.
