SIG Vibro-acoustics Workshop: New Methods for Predicting Noise and Vibration

1 May - 1 May 2019

10:00 am - 4:00 pm

James Dyson Building, University of Cambridge

This event is the third meeting of UKAN SIG-Vibro-acoustics.

Aim: the aim of the workshop is to introduce state of the art methods for the prediction of noise and vibration developed during recent EPSRC-funded research. Numerical and experimental methods will be presented in a tutorial style. New ways of integrating experimental and numerical vibro-acoustic models will be described and illustrated by practical case studies including an industrial case study to be presented by Dyson.
Applications: vibro-acoustic modelling and design, product design, building acoustics and vibration.
Who should attend: consultants, acoustic and vibration engineers, researcher in vibro-acoustic measurement and modelling. The techniques presented are relevant for applications including automotive, aerospace, buildings, domestic appliances, marine, offshore and others.
