Prevent customer dissatisfaction and design more successful products. Redefining and expanding sound concerns beyond the limits of noise control, Designing for Product Sound Quality progresses from introductions and definitions on product sound quality and sound radiation to targeting, resolving, and testing design features.
Features illustrations on every page! Emphasizing that anticipating product operations that produce sound can be an asset in design planning, this monograph defines the terminology and characteristics most relevant to design demonstrates how to conduct and interpret jury tests/listening panels discusses structural responses to noise energy and resonant modes applies concepts to the mechanisms of cams, gears, chains, and sprockets highlights the importance of the single DOF system supplies numerous examples from actual design cases prescribes production line diagnostics for detecting faults and much more!
Supplemented with over 220 drawings, photographs, equations, and tables, Designing for Product Sound Quality is an essential tool for mechanical, design, manufacturing, industrial, and acoustical engineers- acoustical physicists- and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
