Sensing Seismic and Structural Vibrations
 
Texas Instruments asked engineers what they would build, or the capabilities they envision, with the company's LDC1000 inductance-to-digital converter IC. One idea, presented in EDN Magazine, demonstrates the use of the LDC1000 as a "sub-micron displacement sensor for vibration measurement and logging in seismic and structural mechanics" (seen in this video). Applications of the seisometer and structural vibration monitor could include using inductive sensing to measure active suspension systems in industrial equipment as well as sensing liquid levels in pipes and tanks.

Alloy Dampers Don't Tire or Rust
 
Developers claim their new alloy vibration damper offers 10x the low-cycle fatigue life of steel counterparts. The damper's strength comes from adding high concentration manganese and silicon to iron, which also makes the damper corrosion-resistant. When used with oil and friction dampers, the alloy version can help protect high-rise structures from long-duration earthquakes.

Shimmy Damper is
Fluid-free
 
After flying more than 5,000 cycles on an aircraft, a fluid-free shimmy damper showed no signs of wear. The new damper replaces hydraulic pistons in traditional dampers. Without the possibility of hydraulic fluid leaks, the damper is virtually maintenance-free and could provide up to 10 years of use. Developed for the Piper PA-28/32 aircraft, the damper will soon be available to the public.

Wireless Speech Source Measures Intelligibility
 
Speech intelligibility measurements can be taken with the wireless Echo Speech Source Type 4720. When used with the company's DIRAC 6 room acoustics software, Echo measures and calculates a room's speech intelligibility characteristics. Room-to-room comparisons and field acoustics are measured with an excitation signal and played from the device, DIRAC, or an MP3 player.

Sound System Keeps Historical Records
 
Eleven sensors enable this new sound and vibration monitoring solution to provide real-time reports. Requiring only an Internet connection, the plug-and-play device has an integrated modem, external measurement microphone, and sound intensity probe. An audible alarm alerts users when vibration and sound levels have been exceeded. Historical records are maintained as long as one year.

A Smoother Ride to Space
 
It is rocket science! Tasked with finding ways to reduce vibrations in rockets, these researchers from University College Dublin are developing a control algorithm to communicate with the rocket engines and thrusters on the launcher. The mission: control and absorb vibrations during exit from Earth's atmosphere.
 
Machine Mounts, Vibration Isolators . . .
 
Control Vibration from Ship to Offshore
 
Moving equipment from a supply ship to an offshore platform requires shocks and dampers. So, a shock and vibration isolation solution was developed that will protect the cargo. The ITT-Servi Hydranor system, part of a barrier engineered by Aibel AS for the Gudrun Platform (shown here), includes highly-tuned dampers that absorb the cargo's kinetic energy, explain the designers.

Track Shock History
 
Ideally suited for the transportation sector, this range of shock and vibration data loggers perform 1,600 measurements per second in three axes. The new loggers can monitor shocks up to ±200 g and ensure that the history of a shock can be examined. Enhanced memory capacity is a key feature: 200 million measurements by default and another 1 billion with an SD card.

Noise from Low-voltage Electrical Equipment
 
This 170-page IEEE document, available from IHS, specifies consensus standard methods, instrumentation, and facilities for measurement of radio-frequency (RF) signals and noise emitted from electrical and electronic devices in the frequency range of 9 kHz to 40 GHz. The specified procedures are intended to be applied primarily in controlled laboratory environments, but they may be used for emission measurement of in situ devices where indicated.
