Structural acoustics or vibro-acoustics is the study of structural vibration and fluid structure interaction leading to the radiation of sound. Structure borne sound is a well known vibro-acoustic phenomenon but in fact most airborne sound sources can also be considered from the same vibro-acoustic viewpoint.
At Salford we are equipped with state of the art facilities, equipment and a broad range of vibro-acoustic measurement methods, many of which are unavailable elsewhere. Using these methods it is possible to diagnose and fix vibro-acoustic problems or assist product design.
