Aided Engineering and Design (CAE/CAD)
Many designers have a minimal experience base upon which to assess
the vibroacoustic qualities of their designs. All too often,
we receive a call following the discovery of a noise problem in a
project that is at or near completion. While we often become
involved with projects at this point, it is not the most cost effective
approach. Sometimes, at this late stage in the project there may be
no engineering solutions that fit within cost, weight, and space constraints.
In this event, no one is happy.
kind of problem is routinely avoided by including realistic noise
and vibration level targets among the design objectives. We
can review and comment on the noise control treatments shown in
your drawings and data. We can provide unique designs for
your project that achieve stated objectives at minimal cost to the
customer. We can work with your CAD data to add the detail
necessary to achieve project goals.
a readily available solution required for meeting your needs is
not available, we'll invent one.
example, one of our clients required exhaust silencers for a set
of 1300 hp marine diesel engines in a luxury motor yacht.
As such, excellent low noise characteristics were required.
As is often the case, there was insufficient space available for
effective conventional exhaust silencers.
responded with a silencer design that achieves superior noise reduction
in a very small volume. It also includes an inlet, outlet
and water drain arrangement designed to optimize its placement in
the engine room, minimizing the space allocated to exhaust treatment.
design was so successful, it has since become the standard at one
of Italy's premier yacht builders.
provides a wide array of design services to ensure that noise and
vibration goals are met. We are experienced in the full assortment
of noise and vibration solutions. Whether it's a flexibly
mounted propulsion package or an annoying air handler, we provide
the designs to make them quiet.
it must be quiet ..... we'll design it!
