SoundDuctFlow, a Modelica library for the joint calculation of acoustic and flow quantities in HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) ducts is presented. Modeling the sound propagation in ducts by one dimensional acoustic twoport methods is a well-established technique for the acoustic characterization of large HVAC duct networks. Two dierent approaches of acoustic modeling will be considered in the framework: When resonant phenomena are insignificant, it is often sucient to apply…

APPLICATION OF A SIMPLIFIED "SOURCE-PATH- RECEIVER" MODEL FOR HVAC NOISE TO THE PRE- LIMINARY DESIGN OF A SHIP: A CASE STUDY.

The noise due to HVAC systems has a significant impact on living and working spaces inside ships. This is a very tangled problem since there is a lack of regulation regarding ships noise or vibration

Preliminary design of aerospace linear actuator housings

Purpose – This paper aims to propose preliminary design models of actuator housing that enable various geometries to be compared without requiring detailed knowledge of the actuator components.

Functional Debugging of Equation-Based Languages

The novel technique, referred to as functional debugging, can be used in the context of the current systems engineering industrial practice in order to identify system-level problems and explore design alternatives during the early concept design phase.

Exhaust and Intake Noise and Acoustical Design of Mufflers and Silencers

A muffler or silencer is a device used in a flow duct to prevent sound from reaching the openings of the duct and radiating as far-field sound. Reactive silencers do this by reflecting sound back

Sound and Vibration Control

Sound and vibration control, with HVAC and lighting, are parts of the environmental control systems of a building, because sounds useful for communication or for music are called signals.
