    Wire Rope Isolators for Seismic Base Isolation

    Claude Prost1, *, Bruno Abdelnour2
    Sound & Vibration, Vol.52, No.5, pp. 2-5, 2018, DOI:10.32604/sv.2018.00002
    Abstract Tall and slender substation equipment is prone to failure under seismic excitations. The consequences of such failure can be devastating and lead to weeks or months of lost power.
    The IEEE Std 693-2005 ensures that all substation equipment installed in high seismic areas are designed to withstand earthquakes of a severity related to that area.
    There are numerous ways to increase the seismic strength of substation equipment and this paper will discuss doing so by base isolation, specifically using wire rope isolators (WRIs).
    It is the purpose of this paper to present a case study in which the Socitec Group… More >

    Perception of Nonlinear Distortion in Music Signals Reproduced by Microspeakers

    Pei Yu, Yong Shen*, Ziyun Liu
    Sound & Vibration, Vol.52, No.5, pp. 6-11, 2018, DOI:10.32604/sv.2018.04090
    Abstract A lot of work has focused on compensating nonlinear distortions of the microspeaker under large excitation, yet it is unclear at which level the effect of nonlinear distortion is imperceptible or not annoying. In this study virtual listening tests were performed to evaluate the deterioration of sound quality in music signals with different levels of nonlinear distortion by a microspeaker. Binaural recordings of the music played by the microspeaker were made at different voltage levels, adjusted to the same RMS power, and afterwards reproduced by a low distortion reference headphone. The “double-blind triple-stimulus with hidden reference” method was used in… More >

    Influence of Operating Parameters on Unbalance in Rotating Machinery Using Response Surface Method

    Ameya M. Mahadeshwar1, *, Sangram S. Patil1, Vishwadeep C. Handikherkar1, Vikas M. Phalle1
    Sound & Vibration, Vol.52, No.5, pp. 12-21, 2018, DOI:10.32604/sv.2018.03927
    Abstract Wide range of rotating machinery contains an inherent amount of unbalance which leads to increase in the vibration level and related faults. In this work, the effect of different operating conditions viz. the unbalanced weight, radius, speed and position of the rotor disc on the unbalance in rotating machine are studied experimentally and analyzed by using Response Surface Methodology (RSM). RSM is a technique which consists of mathematical and statistical methods to develop the relationship between the inputs and outputs of a system by distinct functions. L27 Orthogonal Array (OA) was developed by using Design of Experiments (DOE) according to… More >

    A Study of the Suitable Measurement Location and Metrics for Assessing the Vibration Source Strength Based on the Field-Testing Data of Nanchang Underground Railway

    Ling Zhang1, 2, Xiaoyan Lei1, Jian Jiang2, Qingsong Feng1
    Sound & Vibration, Vol.52, No.5, pp. 22-27, 2018, DOI:10.32604/sv.2018.04058
    Abstract Underground railway vibration source strength is one of the key values used for environmental impact assessment and the evaluation of mitigation measure’s performance. However, currently there is no international standard of measuring the underground railway vibration source strength for such purposes. The available local standards and industrial guidelines do not agree on measurement locations as well as the metrics for presenting the source strength. This has caused many confusions. This paper aims to study the suitable measurement location and metrics using the data from a large scale field-testing carried out at the Nanchang underground railway (Metro Line 1, China) in… More >

    Three-stage Nonlinear Thermal Model for Microspeakers in Mobile Phones

    Zhiliang Zhang, Yong Shen*, Jie Xia, Yuchen Shen
    Sound & Vibration, Vol.52, No.5, pp. 28-33, 2018, DOI:10.32604/sv.2018.03862
    Abstract Since microspeakers are widely used in mobile phones, high power is usually applied to obtain sufficient output sound pressure. However, the electric power is almost converted into heat, leading to the thermal problem in microspeakers. Compared with large loudspeaker, microspeakers are smaller and the under yoke is relatively closed, causing the heat transfer more complex. In this study, a three-stage nonlinear thermal model was proposed for analyzing the thermal behavior in microspeakers. The inside air is a buffer area between the voice coil and magnet, and modeled as a middle stage of the heat transfer. The forced convection is still… More >
