Topics

Let's say you wanted to quiet the loud auxiliary power unit on a large Abrams tank or any other loud noisy contraption. Would carbon nanotubes, thinner than a human hair, immediately come to mind? Probably not but that is exactly the solution that Andrew Barnard has developed. Learn how noise control engineers make mechanical systems quiet, the effects of noise on people, and how we engineer systems to be quiet.  Get the full scoop at mtu.edu/huskybites.
