16ST2: Investigation of Noise Transmission through Pump Casing

Project Leader: Monika Ivantysynova, Professor of Mechanical Engineering

Institution: Purdue University

This project will model the transmission of the vibrations from a swash plate type axial piston pump through the pump’s casing to the generation of acoustical noise in the surrounding environment.

The goal of this research is to model the transmission of vibrations from a swash plate type axial piston pump through the pump’s casing to the generation of acoustic noise in the surrounding environment. The desired result of this research is to gain a better understanding of noise generation and transmission in axial piston pumps and to create a comprehensive model of a axial piston pump’s noise emission. This computer- based model can be used for predictive design of pumps including pump housing and valve plate design to reduce airborne noise generation.
