Please join us for our September 10th chapter meeting at the Idaho Power Building

Acoustical Issues in Mechanical Systems: Facts & Myths

Practical Noise Control - Avoiding the Sound Traps 

Earl Mullins, PE (mechanical) will talk about the practical aspects of noise control.  He has been an acoustical consultant for 30 years now, and has worked on more than 2100 different major and minor projects around the western US and around the world. 

Learn about commonly tried sound reduction techniques that accomplish little or nothing.  You will be able to apply information from this talk to your current work.  Also feel free to bring specific questions about a current noise problem you are encountering.  We start with the "how" and "why" of sound production and sound transmission, then cover the basic principles of noise control, and explain some of the industry jargon.  We finish with case studies of some real-world projects, describing the noise control solutions that were used.  This is a technical presentation about noise control, not a sales pitch for any particular product.  You will leave with a better understanding of noise control principles, and hopefully enough knowledge to avoid making the most common errors.  There is great value in simply knowing when to ask questions about noise.  The program always includes a few minutes for Q & A.  Program length including Q&A typically runs 55-60 minutes.
