Noise and Vibration Control
In Noise and Vibration Control , you'll learn ...
- Procedures for determining sound pressure levels in enclosed rooms
- Practical noise control treatments and solutions for equipment noise problems
- Quantitative values of natural effects and structural interferences in outdoor sound propagation
- Typical forms of vibration isolators
Silence is truly golden when an engineer works towards the goal of minimizing background noise and vibrations generated by mechanical systems. This course provides engineers with the criteria and guidance required to design and to construct the most common features related to noise and vibration control of mechanical equipment systems.
The course begins with a discussion of indoor noise and vibration criteria for acceptable living and working environments, which can be used to evaluate the suitability of existing indoor spaces and spaces under design. It then provides procedures for determining sound pressure levels in enclosed rooms, procedures for estimating changes in sound levels, and quantitative values of natural effects (distance, atmosphere, terrain and vegetation) and structural interferences (barriers and buildings) in outdoor sound propagation.
Next, the course presents a systematic approach for evaluating noise data and arriving at design decisions for controlling the noise of electrical and mechanical equipment transmitted between rooms within a building and to other nearby structures. It discusses the various noise control treatments that are practical and available for solution of equipment noise problems. It also considers the sound levels resulting from the operation of HVAC systems in buildings. In addition, the course provides details of vibration isolation mountings so that the desired vibration conditions can be met for most electrical and mechanical equipment. Typical forms of vibration isolators are given, as well as descriptions of five general types of mounting systems and summary tables offering suggested applications of five mounting systems for the mechanical equipment commonly found in buildings.
