In complex mechanical systems such as process equipment or structures that are connected to static or rotating mechanical equipment, the interaction between sound and vibrations is often so complicated that there is no simple solution to the problem.
In such cases, simultaneous measurements using multichannel systems and appropriate signal processing methods will be the more cost effective approach and provide the best quality. Brekke & Strand has measuring and analysis tools to take on such assignments at short notice. We perform measurement assignments ranging from the most basic testing methods to the most advanced methods currently available on the market.
The methodology and algorithms that can be applied are general for mechanical system and can in principle be applied to the problem in any sector where audio and/or vibration analyses are required.
