We’ve written before about the fluid power research projects coming out of the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power. 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, a researcher at Purdue University, at the 2016 Fluid Power Research and Innovation Conference.
See the presentation slides from the conference below:
Project summary: This project will focus on noise modeling techniques for swash plate type axial piston machines. The optimized models will be 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.
Watch for project updates as the project progresses.
