Sound level meter aid ships noise projects

Sound level meter aid ships noise projects
As ship-owners must ensure their vessels meet strict noise regulations, Tokai University initiated two projects intended to help engineers reduce and control noise on board during operation. The latest regulation - International Maritime Organization (IMO) noise level code on board ships, which became mandatory for new ships on July 1st, 2014 - is to protect seafarers against hearing loss, improve comfort levels and make aware the need to communicate with colleagues and hear alarms.

Data acquisition system certifies business jet noise

Data acquisition system certifies business jet noise
Dassault Aviation has performed noise certification tests on their new Falcon 8X business jet, using an acoustic data acquisition and analysis system from Brüel & Kjær. Exterior aircraft noise certification tests are required by aviation regulators. The tests establish certified aircraft Effective Perceived Noise Levels (EPNLs) for each of the flight conditions: approach, flyover and sideline.

Sshh! Microphones aid sound test in " quietest place in the world"

Sshh! Microphones aid sound test in " quietest place in the world"
Microsoft has a vision to make its customer devices so effortless to use that they all but disappear and - since sound quality holds the key - the company built a series of anechoic chambers for testing, which include the quietest place in the world. As well as machines understanding humans, people also need to understand each other effortlessly if technology is to become an ‘invisible’ assistant.

Data acquisition hardware aids bid for Olympic Gold

Data acquisition hardware aids bid for Olympic Gold
French engineering student Raphaël Chevalier has developed a device that helps Olympic prone shooters improve their accuracy by up to 24%. Rifle shooting is a precise science where the combination of barrel and ammunition affects the bullet’s accuracy. This is mainly due to the gun’s ‘kick’, also known as recoil, as the bullet fires: transverse vibrations result from recoil forces in the rifle imparting on the back of the barrel.
