    Abstract Noise pollution is one of the most significant harmful physical factors in the industrial and occupational environments. Due to the high costs of exposure to excessive noise; continuous sound evaluation, propose and implement noise control plans in occupational environments is necessary. Thus, the present study aimed to review environmental sound measurements, drawing of noise maps, and prioritizing the engineering noise control methods using the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). This study was a descriptive-analytical study that aimed to assess occupational noises and present a control plan in the City Gas Stations (CGSs) of Kerman, Iran in 2021.

    Airborne Acoustic Transmission and Terrain Topography at SAINTGITS Amphitheatre: An Analysis of Outdoor Auditory Perception and Comparison of Contour Plots

    Jacob Thottathil Varghese1,2,*, Sajan Thomas1,2,3, Joselin Herbert4, Chacko Preno Koshy1,2, Arjun Venugopal1,2

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.56, No.3, pp. 255-274, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sv.2022.016180

    Abstract The arrangement of natural and physical features on the earth’s surface are a few among the countless items that govern the airborne acoustic transmission at boundary layers. In particular, if the acoustic waves are attributes of live concerts at open-air theatres, without losing the sheen and quality, the audience should certainly receive the unbroken depth of the performance. Hence, at all times, it is advisable to analyse the auditory receptiveness, particularly in all intended recreational spaces. The current pandemic circumstances and the mandated COVID-19 prevention protocols encourage gatherings in naturally ventilated outdoor regions than confined indoors. This work predicts and… More >

    Efficacy of Singing Bowls in Childhood Asthma—A Pilot and Feasibility Study

    Sukhbir Shahid*

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.56, No.3, pp. 245-253, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sv.2022.016139

    Abstract The potential use of sound and vibration for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes remains largely under-explored and under-estimated. Sound and vibrational energy has great positive impact on the mind and body. It could be particularly useful for psychosomatic diseases as a complementary therapy. Singing bowls, the spiritual ancient therapy has been claimed to aid in mind relaxation and painful and inflammatory conditions. Childhood asthma is an inflammatory airway disease and a psychosomatic disorder. The psychological management in it is often neglected leading to under-treatment or a relapse. Hence, we hypothesized that sound therapy with singing bowls might be useful as complementary… More >

    Sensitivity Analysis of Contact Type Vibration Measuring Sensors

    Mohit Dhanda1, Pankaj Pant2, Sourabh Dogra1, Arpan Gupta1,*, Varun Dutt3

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.56, No.3, pp. 235-243, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sv.2022.015615

    Abstract With the Internet of Things (IoT) era dawning in, we are surrounded by a plethora of sensors. The present paper focuses on MEMS-based vibration measuring accelerometers, which are ubiquitously present in smartphones, tablets, smartwatches/bands, etc. These contact type vibration sensors have the unique advantage of being very small, low cost, low power, less weighing, and easily accommodatable in electronics. However, the accuracy of these sensors needs to be quantified with respect to more accurate sensors. With this objective, the paper presents a comparison of the relative sensitivity of a MEMS-based accelerometer (MPU 6050), a Geophone, and a sensor from Xiaomi… More >

    Tactile Response Characterization of a Dynamic System Using Craig-Bampton Method

    S. Pradeepkumar*, P. Nagaraj

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.56, No.3, pp. 221-233, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sv.2022.014889

    Abstract Vibrational characteristics in small horizontal axis wind turbine system are presented in this study with a system concept called tactile response and substructuring. The main focus is on managing the dynamic properties like vibration, noise, and harshness that occur during the operational mode. Tactile response is defined as the response of subsystem which is induced when a human body touches a vibrating system. Sub structuring is a computational method used to reduce the dynamic behavior of a large complex system with a smaller number of degrees of freedom without disturbing the mesh size of the model. Sub structuring has the… More >

    Development of IoT-Based Condition Monitoring System for Bridges

    Sheetal A. Singh, Suresh S. Balpande*

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.56, No.3, pp. 209-220, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sv.2022.014518

    Abstract As of April 2019, India has 1,42,126 kilometres of National Highways and 67,368 kilometres of railway tracks that reach even the most remote parts of the country. Bridges are critical for both passenger and freight movement in the country. Because bridges play such an important part in the transportation system, their safety and upkeep must be prioritized. Manual Condition Monitoring has the disadvantage of being sluggish, unreliable, and ineffi- cient. The Internet of Things has given structural monitoring a boost. Significant decreases in the cost of electronics and connection, together with the expansion of cloud platforms, have made it possible… More >

    On Fractional Integro-Differential Equation with Nonlinear Time Varying Delay

    A. A. Soliman1, K. R. Raslan2, A. M. Abdallah3,*

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.56, No.2, pp. 147-163, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sv.2022.015882

    Abstract In this manuscript, we analyze the solution for class of linear and nonlinear Caputo fractional Volterra Fredholm integro-differential equations with nonlinear time varying delay.

    Preliminary Archaeoacoustic Study of Kanheri Caves in Mumbai (Maharashtra, India)

    Ajinkya S. Umbarkar1,*, Deoram V. Nandanwar1, Omprakash P. Chimankar2

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.56, No.2, pp. 193-203, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sv.2022.015322

    Abstract Here we report first ever study on acoustical evaluation of Kanheri Caves located in Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Mumbai (Maharashtra, India). These caves are dated to a period between 2nd century BCE to 7th century CE. In this study we used an ambisonic recorder to capture Impulse Response, which carries acoustic signature of the place. Out of total 109 caves 41 were surveyed in available time. Out of those reverberant environment was noted in 12 caves. Measurements were made only in 3 caves (Cave Nos. 1, 3, 11) which are important. In the beginning we carried out an FFT analysis.… More >

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.56, No.2, pp. 165-191, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sv.2022.015267

    Abstract Usage of rolling contact bearings in variety of rotor-dynamic applications has put forth a need to develop a detailed and easy to implement techniques for the assessment of damage related features in these bearings so that before mechanical failure, maintenance actions can be planned well in advance. In accordance to this, a method based on dimensional amplitude response analysis and scaling laws is presented in this paper for the diagnosis of defects in different components of rolling contact bearings in a dimensionally scaled rotor-bearing system. Rotor, bearing, operating and defect parameters involved are detailed for dimensional analysis using frequency domain… More >
