Production Processes Group Seminar - "Acoustic damping in steel"
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Roger Baker.
Summary: Caribbean steel pans are made from the ends of mild steel oil drums, shaped using standard metallurgical processes to produce quite sophisticated regions of confined vibration which produce the characteristic sound of the instrument. Sometimes the pans don’t ‘ring’ properly, and this is attributed to variability in acoustic damping in the steel. An investigation was carried out on the way in which damping is affected by metallurgical processing, uncovering some intriguing phenomena. The work presented here builds on PhD research completed by Soren Maloney in 2010.
