Noise and Vibration Control

DanHolohan Member, Moderator, Administrator Posts: 15,384
(Indianapolis, IN) Design engineers seeking to build cost-effective
noise and vibration controls into their product designs can obtain a
systematic and concise tutorial outlining the four principal tools for
noise and vibration control (damping, isolation, absorption and barrier
materials), authored by E-A-R Specialty Composites (E-A-R). E-A-R,
arguably the world leader in composite/elastomer engineering and product
development for handling noise, vibration, comfort, thermal requirements
and/or shock, hopes that the "The Four-Fold Method of Noise and
Vibration Control" white paper will help product designers get a better
understanding of how passive acoustical systems can best be used to
improve product designs at the lowest cost.

George Gabuzda, Senior Director of E-A-R comments, "Whether design
engineers are attempting to retrofit noise and vibration controls into
existing products, or considering new product designs, it pays to have a
better handle on basic principles that affect choices of materials for
noise or vibration controls. Because E-A-R manufactures the broadest
selection of materials for noise and vibration controls available from a
single source, we usually can offer design engineers a wider selection
of choices for noise and vibration controls than is expected. Choosing
the right materials for a particular noise or vibration problem does not
require magic, but can sometimes be tricky. Through many years of
partnering with product designers to solve noise and vibration problems,
E-A-R's engineers know both the usual noise sources in particular
product designs, and how to efficiently diagnose the specific acoustic
signature of a particular model. E-A-R authored "The Four-Fold Method
of Noise and Vibration Control" to help product designers gain a better
understanding of underlying design issues that impact noise and
vibration control."
