Passive damping treatments for controlling vibration in isotropic and orthotropic structural materials
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2015)
The structural vibration damping behaviour of plates and beams can be improved by the application of viscoelastic passive damping materials. Unconstrained layer damping treatments applied to metal plate systems were studied ...
Analysis and Development of a Decanter Centrifuge: Power consumption analysis, development of a composite bowl, and feed accelerator analysis
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2013)
This project was concerned with the analysis and development of a decanter centrifuge. The aim of the project was to increase the understanding of the operation of the machine, and identify and implement methods of improving ...
Damping behaviour of plant-fibre composite materials
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2014)
The vibration damping property of plant fibres composites is of practical interest for commercial applications of biobased and eco-composites. Damping behaviour has been observed by experimentation and exploited in the ...
