Knowledge-based system for low-noise design of machinery and equipment

The developed software tool provides a component-based representation of the noise situation of machinery and equipment. This representation provides the means to access help information on low-noise design, and also allows parameter studies for any given machine. In this way, the designer not only can obtain general information on noise reduction measures, but can also assess their individual and combined effect on the total noise level.

In this way, the development process of low noise products is speeded up, reducing time to market, providing a common means of presentation and continuity in the specialist field of noise control which is often difficult for designers to deal with.
