    Abstract Road traffic noise can have a significant impact on the quality of life for residents close to major road networks. One of the most effective measures for reducing the noise from road traffic, particularly on high-speed roads, is to ensure the use of a low noise road surface. Research on pavement construction and the measurement of its acoustic properties has shown that significant noise reductions can be achieved through the use of certain road surface types. However certain low noise road surfaces do not exhibit the desired durability associated with more traditional pavements, leading to costly and disruptive maintenance regimes.

    High-g Shocking Testing of the Martlet Wireless Sensing System

    Xi Liu, Xinjun Dong, Yang Wang*, Jacob Dodson, Bryan Joyce
    Sound & Vibration, Vol.52, No.3, pp. 6-11, 2018, DOI:10.32604/sv.2018.03857
    Abstract This article reports the latest development of a wireless sensing system, named Martlet, on high-g shock acceleration measurement. The Martlet sensing node design is based on a Texas Instruments Piccolo microcontroller, with clock frequency programmable up to 90 MHz. The high clock frequency of the microcontroller enables Martlet to support high-frequency data acquisition and high-speed onboard computation. In addition, the extensible design of the Martlet node conveniently allows incorporation of multiple sensor boards. In this study, a high-g accelerometer interface board is developed to allow Martlet to work with the selected microelectromechanical system (MEMS) high-g accelerometers. Besides low-pass and high-pass… More >


    Modeling and Measurement of a Tunable Acoustoelastic System

    Abstract Acoustoelastic coupling occurs when a hollow structure’s in-vacuo mode aligns with an acoustic mode of the internal cavity. The impact of this coupling on the total dynamic response of the structure can be quite severe depending on the similarity of the modal frequencies and shapes. Typically, acoustoelastic coupling is not a design feature, but rather an unintended result that must be remedied as modal tests of structures are often used to correlate or validate finite element models of the uncoupled structure. Here, however, a test structure is intentionally designed such that multiple structural and acoustic modes are well-aligned, resulting in… More >


    Overview of the New OMAH Technique for Scaling OMA Mode Shapes

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.52, No.3, pp. 18-22, 2018, DOI:10.32604/sv.2018.03872
    Abstract Methods for scaling mode shapes determined by operational modal analysis (OMA) have been extensively investigated in the last years. A recent addition to the range of methods for scaling OMA mode shapes is the so-called OMAH technique, which is based on exciting the structure by harmonic forces applied by an actuator. By applying harmonic forces in at least one degree-of-freedom (DOF), and measuring the response in at least one response DOF, while using at least as many frequencies as the number of mode shapes to be scaled, the mode shape scaling (modal mass) of all modes of interest may be… More >
