1. Novel Noise Prediction Technique for Demolition Saves Time and Money
The redevelopment of a subway station in central London required the removal of a thick concrete slab, approximately 66 x 56 ft. To minimize the potential disruption, our customer JoTech Ltd., a company with over 20 years NVH consultancy experience, was commissioned to estimate the noise that would be generated during demolition.
m+p SO Analyzer for noise prediction measurements
Measurements were taken using the m+p SO Analyzer software running on a laptop computer, with a four-channel portable USB data acquisition module. The lightweight, easily transportable kit and the flexibility of the software, including integrated narrowband and third-octave calculations, are ideally suited to such on-site investigations. It is estimated that applying this noise prediction technique saved hundreds of thousands of dollars and many weeks of construction time. Read more.

The m+p VibSlideRule offers a wide range of useful calculating tools for vibration testing and structural analysis and is very popular with our customers. It helps visualise the relationships that apply and includes units conversions.
We further enhanced the m+p VibSlideRule which now includes functions for the following modules: Sinusoidal Motion, PSD Spectrum, PSD-RMS, Shock, Force-Moment, Gain, Error and Units Conversion. Read more.

University of Alabama selected two 16-channel m+p VibRunner based systems to begin the development of advanced high-channel count solutions. Key features include the ability to combine the systems using a standard Ethernet switch to meet higher channel count requirements as well as locate the mainframes around large civil structures due to the architecture.

Assistant Professor Wei Song reflects “I worked with m+p systems at Purdue University and selected their m+p VibRunner for our higher channel requirements at Alabama after extensive industry competition.”
m+p international will be exhibiting at two aerospace testing events this spring: the Aerospace Testing Seminar in Los Angeles in March and the Space Tech Expo in Long Beach in April.
