Compressors -- Research and Noise control -- Research
Compressor-noises occur when portions of energy are removed from the desired energy flow, transferred through the internal-combustion hermetic shell and carried as airborne noise by the vibration of supporting structures. Designers can analyze mechanical resonances, dynamic forces, electromagnetic forces and fluid dynamics to predict the occurrence of compressor-noises. They can also use Sysnoise systems for acoustic analysis, Fourier transform analysis and time-domain analysis to determine the cause of the noise prior to prototyping.
Examines the attributes of the popular rapid prototyping systems. Ability of the systems to handle a mobile phone, a fan and a track ball; Performance of the device based on time, quality and cost; Design phase indexes.
