Objective: VIPER is a European Joint Doctorate network focused on research in VIbroacoustic of PERiodic media.
In this chapter sound therapies, vibroacoustic therapy, and biofeedback and resonant frequencies have been introduced in a very superficial manner.
Vibroacoustic Techniques to Diagnose Power Transformer.
The analysis inspects the vibroacoustic performance (that is, frequency response) of a vehicle by simulating the fluid-solid interaction (air and the trim components) within the passenger cabin (the acoustic cavity).
It is used to predict interior noise and vibration in automobiles, aircraft and construction equipment cabs, as well as the radiated noise from ships and the vibroacoustic environments for spacecraft.
Castelo Branco and Rodriguez first documented vibroacoustic disease among airplane technicians, commercial and military pilots, mechanical engineers, restaurant workers, and disc jockeys for exposure to large pressure amplitude and low frequency sound ([greater than or equal to] 90 dB sound pressure level, [less than or equal to] 500 Hz) (Castelo Branco & Rodriguez, 1999; Maschke, 2004).
Wigram (1996) developed his ideas during Vibroacoustic Therapy research, and later published them as a list of the potential elements in sedative music and a list of the potential elements in stimulating music (Wigram, Pederson & Bonde, 2002).
There is extensive evidence that such exposures can lead to a variety of diseases, including vibroacoustic disease (VAB).
Vibroacoustic disease is a well-documented occupational hazard caused by exposure to high levels of infrasound and low-frequency sound.
Research of lawfulness of an impulse and vibroacoustic wave transmission and in solving diagnostic problem lead to necessity of selecting not only information positions for installation of sensors but to evaluate the character of vibration impulse under defects, to set diagnostic regime, determine frequency area of measuring and manner of processing vibroacoustic information to obtain characteristic diagnostic facts.
