Fluid Power Research Update: Investigation of Noise Transmission through Pump Casing Webcast
We’ve written before about the fluid power research projects coming out of the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP). Ten new research projects have recently been selected for funding. One such project is the Investigation of Noise Transmission through Pump Casing project, which was presented by Paul Kalbfleisch and Dan Ding on the September 27 CCEFP Webcast. CCEFP Webcast archives can be accessed at: http://www.ccefp.umn.edu/CCEFP_Webinar_Archives/
Project Summary: This project has focused on noise modeling techniques for swash plate type axial piston machines. The optimized models are being validated by experimental results. It will contribute to the existing body of knowledge for how noise is both generated and transmitted through fluid power components.
