  • Vibration testing of fuel probes

    Aerial Refuelling The American Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey is a multimission, military, tilt rotor aircraft with both a vertical and short takeoff and landing capability. It combines the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the high-speed cruise performance of a long-range turboprop aircraft. But even though it is long-range, some missions require in-flight refuelling. The V-22 Osprey can ...

  • A Device for the Measurement of Sub-Surface Ground Vibrations

    A reliable measurement of free-field stress waves from transient loading has several important applications, for example, in the design of effective wave barriers to protect sensitive equipment and in the design of underground protective structures against explosive loading, to name a few. The characteristics of a stress wave are highly dependent on the energy source and the soil medium through ...

  • Application of particle damping for vibration attenuation in brake drum

    The mechanism of noise of brake is very complex. A particle damper can be introduced without changing the shape of the structure and the addition of mass, and it may be applied in extreme temperature environments where most conventional dampers would fail. However, previous particle damper designs have been based on trial-and-error experimentation. In this paper, the feasibility of an application ...

  • Engine Testing

    Engine testing involves measurement of rotating speed and torque of the engine by applying load controlled by a dynamometer connected to its output shaft. HORIBA has developed various types of dynamometer for the purpose of engine testing. They are mainly classified into two types; one is absorbing only dynamometer such as hydraulic dynamometers and eddy-current dynamometers, the other is ...

  • Vibrations can have both negative and positive effects on the perception of sound

    In a listening test participants were asked to rate their impression of product sound quality of truck sounds combined with steering wheel vibrations. The set-up also contained stimuli where one of two harmonics in the sound was suppressed, corresponding to the most salient peaks in the vibration spectrum. Sound and vibrations were rated as more annoying, tiring, rumbling and of lesser quality ...

  • Evaluation and reduction of steering column vibration of a rear wheel drive sedan

    Vehicle noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) has become a key enabler for successful distinction between competitive vehicles because consumers have come to judge vehicle quality by NVH levels. One of many critical areas of NVH is the amount of vibration felt in the steering wheel as the customer drives the vehicle. This paper presents the evaluation of steering column vibration for a rear-wheel ...

  • Firmness evaluation of melon using its vibration characteristic and finite element analysis

    Analysis of the vibration responses of a fruit has been suggested as a non-destructive measure of its elastic properties (firmness). In this study, 'Huang gua' melons were excited using three types of balls (wooden, steel and rubber) and the vibration was detected by an accelerometer. The modulus of elasticity of the inner, middle and outer portions of melon flesh were determined using flat plate ...
