    Abstract Exposure to sound, heat, and increased physical workload can change physiological parameters. This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of concomitant exposure to sound, heat, and physical workload changes on physiological parameters in controlled laboratory conditions. This experimental crosssectional study was conducted in 35 male university students with a mean age of 25.75 years and a mean BMI of 22.69 kg/m2 . Systolic and diastolic blood pressure and heart rate were measured after 15 min rest in the laboratory, 5 and 10 min after starting the experiment, and then after 20 min in controlled laboratory conditions in five combination… More >

    Abstract In this paper, we used time delay feedback to minimize the vibrations of a hybrid Rayleigh–van der Pol–Duffing oscillator. This system is a one-degree-offreedom containing the cubic and fifth nonlinear terms and an external force. We applied the multiple scales method to get the solution from first approximation. Graphically and numerically, we studied the system before and after adding time delay feedback at the primary resonance case (Ω ≌ ω). We used MATLAB program to simulate the efficacy of different parameters and the time delay on the main system. More >

    Abstract Exposure to high level of noise, may cause the permanent cochlear synaptic degeneration. In present study, a model of noise induced cochlear synaptopathy was established and the electrophysiological and histological metrics for its assessment was designed. 6 guinea pigs were subjected to a synaptopathic noise (octave band of 4 kHz at 104 dB SPL, for 2-h). The amplitude growth curve of Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) wave-I and wave-III latency shift in presence of noise were calculated. These indexes were considered in pre-exposure, 1 day post exposure (1DPE), 1 week post exposure (1WPE) and 1 month post exposure (1MPE) to noise.… More >

    Abstract This study determines the natural frequencies of the lock gate structure, considering the coupled effect of reservoir fluid on one side using the finite element method (FEM). The gate is assumed to be a uniformly thick plate, and its material is isotropic, homogeneous, and elastic. The reservoir fluid is assumed to be inviscid and incompressible in an irrotational flow field. The length of the reservoir domain is truncated using the far boundary condition by adopting the Fourier series expansion theory. Two different assumptions on the free surface, i.e., undisturbed and linearized, are considered in the fluid domain analysis. The computer… More >


    Weighing and Prioritizing Noise Control Methods Using the Delphi Technique and the Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) in an Iranian Tire Manufacturing Factory

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.54, No.3, pp. 201-213, 2020, DOI:10.32604/sv.2020.08651
    Abstract Undoubtedly, noise has become a major hazardous issue in today’s industrial world, with a lot of people suffering from exposure to excessive noise in their work environments. This study was conducted to weigh and prioritize noise control methods in an Iranian tire manufacturing complex in Iran. The Delphi method and the Technique for Order Preference by Similarity and an Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) were utilized for this purpose. This cross-sectional, descriptive study was conducted in the baking hall of an Iranian tire manufacturing factory in 2016. To weigh and prioritize noise control methods, Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and TOPSIS were applied.… More >
