The acoustics & vibrations laboratory provides support for teaching and research within the areas of acoustics, vibrations, wear and machine condition monitoring. This involves the measurement and analysis of air-borne or structure-borne noise and vibration, and wear and fault analysis.
The laboratory is well-equipped with state-of-the-art noise and vibration instrumentation and wear testing facilities, ranging from sound level meters, multi-channel signal analysers, shakers, sound sources, accelerometers, microphones and multi-functional tribometers. The instrumentation and measurement systems are complemented by computer-based modal analysis and data processing systems.
Current research undertaken in the Laboratory covers the following:
Research work undertaken in the Acoustics and Vibration Laboratory is in collaboration with the Defence Science Technology Organisation (DSTO).
