  • A vibration isolation system for a large reverberation chamber (1,228 $m^3$ and 1,000 ton) has been installed and verified. The reverberation chamber generates loud noise and induces high level of vibration while performing spacecraft acoustic reliability tests. The isolation system prevents vibration transfer from the chamber to the enclosure buildings. This paper describes design process and commissioning experiments of the system. Design criteria have been derived from rigid body model of the chamber. The stiffness of neoprene pads has been selected by employing finite element analysis of the reverberant chamber and isolation system. A total of 21 neoprene pads have been installed between the chamber and supporting Pedestals. A sand bag of 800kg was dropped on the chamber floor to measure the natural frequency of the isolation system. While 136.9 dB noise is generated in the chamber, absolute transmissibility of the isolation system has been measured. The measured natural frequency of the chamber is 10.2Hz, which is 80% of the predicted value. Overall transmissibility at working frequency range (25∼10.000 Hz) is less than -12.4 dB.

  • An active method that improves low frequency characteristics of a reverberation chamber has been proposed. Spatial uniformity of sound pressure at low frequency has been increased by applying active noise control system. The system acts as frequency selective damping materials, which decreases resonance at low frequency and leave high frequency sound field as it is. Linearity of the chamber, which is essential for sound power measurement in the chamber, is guaranteed since fixed control logic has been adopted. Simple application and tests have been done in a small sized rectangular reverberation chamber which has 400Hz cutoff, Loud speakers were used to simulate a noise source and to construct an active noise control system. The spatial distribution of a sound field at 250Hz, 315Hz and 400Hz bands has been measured before and after control. The standard deviation of sound field has been decreased from 3.4dB to 2.5dB. The results show the possibility of active control system as a sound diffuser.

  • The air conditioner system that is used in large structure, such as hospital, hotel, railway platform and train generate a high level noise generally. A chamber with sound absorbing materials, such as glass wool and polyurethane foam, are installed in this system to reduce the noise. However, these chambers cause environmental problems owing to the sound absorbing materials recently. Therefore, we develop noise chamber a built-in perforated panel resonance system as eco-friendly chamber to solve this problems. This noise chambers show the same noise reduction performance as the current chambers in the range above 500Hz. But, it reduces the noise up to 8dB(A) comparison to the current chambers in the range 200Hz~400Hz.

  • Development of light-weight high speed train (HST) based on distributed motor control with the top speed of 350 km/hr has engendered a need for abatement of the interior noise of the train cabin. The development of noise abatement measures is crucial at the design stage of the train car since the noise transmission characteristics of the car structure directly influences the cabin interior noise. Since the transmission loss measurement using the entire car structure is often not feasible, especially at the initial stages of the train development, investigation of transmission characteristics using small-scale reverberation chamber can furnish useful alternative source of predicting the noise level. In the present study, white noise is generated at source and transmission loss estimated by performing measurement of a specimen in a scaled reverberation chamber. Comparison of measured values with the previously derived numerical values show good agreement in the overall trend but appreciable quantitative differences still remain.

  • Indoor noise is very important related to the morale and fighting power of the crew as well as environmental condition for them in a navel vessel. Especially, the crew members working in CIC (combat information center) and sonar equipment room require much more quiet environment condition. One of the most serious noise source in CIC is the cooling fan noise installed in the console of the combat system. Therefore, in this paper, the design of the plenum chamber is studied to reduce the noise of the fan from these consoles by numerical analysis and experiment.

  • We investigated passby noise measurement method in a small-sized semi-anechoic chamber satisfying the American based SAE J1470 Recommended Practice to facilitate the measurements. We have tired two passby noise prediction methods. One is line array microphone method in which the free space sound field is decomposed into its eigenfunctions in the spherical coordinates and rearranged according to the order of the spherical Hankel function. However, due to the characteristics of the spherical Hankel function, it is impossible to distinguish the function's characteristics according to the order in farfield. Consequently it can be applied in the transient region of the nearfield and the farfield. The other method is nearfield acoustic holography(NAH). Although measuring hologram for the several operational engine speeds by conventional scanning method is time-consuming work, we can greatly reduce the measuring time by selecting the appropriate engine speed through preexperimental knowledge. To verify this method we experimented with the outdoor passby noise measurements and the passby noise prediction in the small-sized semi-anechoic chamber for the identical passenger vehicle and obtained reasonable and acceptable results.

  • The walls of modern train cars are required to have higher transmission loss since modern train have had high speed and light weight. The method based on Reverberation Chamber like KS F 2808 could be used to measure transmission loss. However, this method has difficulty in that constrained Standard of it requires extremely large facilities. Recently, the method based on Scale Reverberation Chamber is used as an alternative to Reverberation Chamber. The method of Scale Reverberation Chamber is known to be small and economical but it provides standing wave that directly influences measurement error. Therefore, this research is focus on predicting standing waves based on method of FFM and reducing measurement error by changing shape of chamber.

  • The indoor noise of the naval vessel is very important related to the optimum environmental conditions for crews as well as the ability of fighting power of antisubmarine. Especially, sonar equipment room is one of the rooms where require to be silent because the informations of the underwater noise are collected and analyzed in there. In this paper, the sound reduction of the TASS console, one of the main noise sources in a sonar equipment room for a typical naval vessel, is described. The noise source of this TASS console is the flowing noise of cooling fan. In order to reduce this kind of noise, the plenum chamber and acoustic elbow were developed. Related to the development of the plenum chamber, the area of the air-outlet and sound absorption of the inner lining were investigated experimentally with the evaluation system of the sound insertion loss. Acoustic elbow was also manufactured and evaluated with the evaluation system of the sound insertion loss. Finally, in order to evaluated the ability of noise reduction of the plenum chamber and acoustic elbow, the indoor noise of the sonar equipment was measured when they were appled to TASS console.
