    ODS & Modal Testing Using a Transmissi- bility Chain

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.52, No.2, pp. 1-6, 2018, DOI:10.32604/sv.2018.03637
    Abstract In this paper, we show how Operating Deflection Shapes (ODS’s) and mode shapes can be obtained experimentally from measurements that are made using only two sensors and two short wires to connect them to a multi-channel acquisition system. This new test procedure is depicted in Figure 1. Not only is the equipment required to do a test much more cost effective, but this method can be used to test any sized test article, especially large ones.
    The testing method introduced here involves moving a pair of sensors along together in a prescribed manor, and calculating the Transmissibility between them. The… More >

    Influence and Enhancement of Damping Properties of Wire Rope Isolators for Naval Applications

    Claude Prost, Bruno Abdelnour
    Sound & Vibration, Vol.52, No.2, pp. 7-10, 2018, DOI:10.32604/sv.2018.03641
    Abstract Wire Rope Isolators (WRI) are well known and used for the protection of sensitive equipment against non-contact underwater explosions (UNDEX) on board Naval Ships, amongst others, which are extremely destructive and can comple`tely impair the ship’s combat capability.
    Traditional WRI exhibit a number of definite advantages, such as large deflection capability, modularity and insensitivity to aggressive environment when proper materials are used. However, their inherent nonlinearity does not always provide the best solution in terms of shock attenuation. (Stiffening tension characteristics)
    Fortunately, there are ways to overcome this problem, namely increasing their damping and/ or changing their aspect ratio. It… More >

    Comparisons of MFDFA, EMD and WT by Neural Network, Mahalanobis Distance and SVM in Fault Diagnosis of Gearboxes

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.52, No.2, pp. 11-15, 2018, DOI:10.32604/sv.2018.03653
    Abstract A method for gearbox fault diagnosis consists of feature extraction and fault identification. Many methods for feature extraction have been devised for exposing nature of vibration data of a defective gearbox. In addition, features extracted from gearbox vibration data are identified by various classifiers. However, existing literatures leave much to be desired in assessing performance of different combinatorial methods for gearbox fault diagnosis. To this end, this paper evaluated performance of several typical combinatorial methods for gearbox fault diagnosis by associating each of multifractal detrended fluctuation analysis (MFDFA), empirical mode decomposition (EMD) and wavelet transform (WT) with each of neural… More >
