Short courses, meetings and conferences
ISVR Consulting, the ISVR and the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment offer regular courses in various aspects of noise and vibration. Some courses are designed to give an introduction for those new to noise and vibration, while other courses are more specialised. These courses are open to everyone.
ISVR Consulting can also provide special courses tailored to the needs of individual companies or industries. Examples of possible topics include
- noise control,
- silencer design and exhaust systems,
- various aspects of engine noise, vibration and harshness (NVH),
- low-noise design,
- insight into building acoustics,
- use of noise and vibration instrumentation,
- noise control of leisure craft.
These courses, which are typically one or two days in length, may be held either in Southampton, or at a client’s premises. If you would
like a course tailored to your needs, please contact us, without obligation, to discuss your requirements.
Short courses and workshops
ISVR Consulting staff will be presenting on the ISVR Advanced Course which will run between Monday 7th and Friday 11th September 2015 at the University. The Advanced Course is a five-day course in Sound and Vibration led by world-class experts in their fields. There is a two-day ‘refresher’ in the fundamentals of sound and vibration, followed by a three-day ‘advanced’ course in either Noise Control or Aeroacoustics.
The Advanced Course in Noise Control outlines the underlying principles of noise control, examines the character of noise in some key applications and discusses how noise may be reduced by design or palliative treatment. The Advanced Course in Aeroacoustics provides an introduction to the prediction and control of flow-generated noise, with an emphasis on the physics and modelling that underpin predictive acoustic analysis.
Further details of the Advanced Course, including brochure, costs and booking details, are available on the Advanced Course webpage.
Details of short courses and continuing professional development opportunities at the ISVR and in the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment are available on line.
Meetings and Conferences
ISVR Consulting staff regularly present papers at meetings and conferences.
Acoustics 2016, the Institute of Acoustics Annual Conference, will include three papers by authors from ISVR Consulting:
- Malcolm Smith: Numerical modelling and case studies in acoustics, dynamics and vibroacoustics
- Christos Karatsovis and Daniel Lurcock: FE models of structure borne noise and vibration in buildings
- Erika Quaranta and Simon Roberts: Application of numerical model methods to the design of silencers
Acoustics 2016 is on Monday and Tuesday, 5th and 6th September 2016 at Chesford Grange, Warwickshire.
The ISMA 2016 Conference on Noise and Vibration Engineering includes the following paper from ISVR Consulting:
- Alessandra Treviso and Malcolm G. Smith, Acoustic design of lightweight cabin walls for cruise ships
ISMA2016 will take place from 19th to 21st September 2016 in Leuven, Belgium.
