This consultant is responsible for the analysis of vibration and sound trans­mission in mechanical systems. This effort often involves performing “noise audits” on a variety of devices such as consumer products, machinery, medical devices, military hardware, etc. The audits rank-order contribu­tions from indi­vidual sources as a basis for developing efficient noise control approaches to reduce noise. The associate has exten­sive experience in developing experimental transfer functions to characterize vibration and noise transmission in ships, automobiles, helicopters and buildings that, along with measured or estimated source levels, complete the noise audit representation of source contributions for these complex systems.

Additionally, this expert has been responsible for the development of analytical models to predict acoustic propa­gation in porous materials and baffles of compliant tubes used on submarine hull structures, acoustic propagation through silencing systems for use with internal combustion engines and airflow paths within medical devices, as well as models for predicting vibration transmission in ship, submarine, and aerospace structuresusing Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA). This consultant has also been involved in the development of adap­tive noise cancelling approaches for an electronic stethoscope used in medical evacuation helicopters to reduce background noise and for a military handset to remove gunshot sounds from radio communica­tions on a battlefield.
