  Partially responsible for broadband active control of sound radiated from an air conditioner compressor using adaptive algorithms.  Developed a new (patented) method of broadband active noise control from vibrating surfaces which relies on vibration information to alter the acoustic field.  Performed active control of structural vibrations using experimentally obtained impulse responses.  This experiment employed a feed-forward controller that compensated for feedback loop to achieve broadband vibration reductions.  This control technique= was used to control the sound of an air compressor.

  The active means used specially designed force actuators to control the vibration response of a cylinder such that it radiated minimum acoustic power.  T= hese force actuators were PZT based inertial shakers that employed a flextension= al design which amplified the small PZT displacements to yield large dynamic forces.  This strategy utilized a combination of analytical, numerical and adaptive control methodologies.  The passive means were centered on the = use of iterative optimization techniques to determine the distribution of structur= al material properties such that the structure is naturally an in-efficient radiator of sound.  The particular distribution of structural material properties was achieved through variati= ons in thickness or specific arrangement of plies of a composite structure.

  One such method was based on quadratic optimization of the radiated acoustic power expressed in terms of actuator forces.  The structural radiation characteristic= s were altered by tailoring its vibration response.  Also, experimentally investigated the potential of piezoceramics and shape memory alloys as a means of actuation.  Implemented Finite Element and Boundary Element models of composite plates with embedded actuators to provide numerical predictions of the effectiveness of these actuators for altering structural radiation characteristics. Became proficient in use of the ANSYS finite element packa= ge. Formulated a numerical methodology based on Linear Programming techniques f= or designing quiet structures using variations in geometrical or material properties (stiffness and density). Also during this period, gained hands-on experience with SMS STAR modal analysis software and took responsibility for providing maintenance and user support for the Unix-based Masscomp 5500 sys= tems at the Noise Control Laboratory.
