Expert Details

Acoustics and Vibration

ID: 732427 Massachusetts, USA

Request Expert

Expert is responsible for performing sound and vibration analyses associated with product noise mitigation, building vibration analysis, and signal processing. These studies have involved sound quality evaluations and source/path identification efforts that lead to effective modifications for improving product sound, and development, implementation and evaluation of various signal processing procedures for use in sound and vibration analyses, remote sensing, active noise/vibration control, and machinery diagnostics.

He has consulted on a broad range of projects including vibration and noise monitoring in labs containing sensitive equipment, the use of a parameter reduction and adaptive deconvolution scheme to extract combustion pressure waveforms from measured engine vibration signals, computer modeling of sound and vibration propagation, development of a prototype embedded system for active control of transient vibration pulses, investigation of ultrasonic methods for determining bolt tensions in the field, and the use of “jury panels” and statistical techniques for determining how different mechanisms and components affect subjective sound quality of various consumer products.

Other representative experience includes noise reduction of products ranging from medical devices to home appliances to truck-mounted refrigeration units, the development of loudspeakers and underwater transducers, and the design of effective audio signal processing to change the perceived height of sounds in home theater applications.

He has consulted in the acoustics and vibration field in multiple capacities for over 35 years.
