Research Subcommittee Meeting Agenda

Monday, January 23, 8:00 AM – 9:00 AM, Dearborn 2

Status of ongoing Projects:
RP-1322 Productivity and Perception, Mark Schaffer, Chair. Lily Wang, University of Nebraska, Principle Investigator.

RP-1408 The Effect of Lining Length On The Insertion Loss of Acoustical Duct Liner. Jerry Lilly PMS chair. Doug Reynolds, UNLV, Principle Investigator.

Work Statements:
RP-1529 Full Frequency Numerical Modeling of Sound Transmission and Radiation In Lined Ducts – This project will develop and validate full-frequency numerical modeling techniques for sound transmission through, and radiation from, HVAC ductwork. Pat Marks will serve as the PES Chair. Project is ready for bid, possibly in the Fall of 2011.

RTARs:
Effect of HVAC noise in hospitals – Ken Roy and J.R. Babineau prepared a draft RTAR and this was forwarded to TC members for review 6/20/2010. This is a potential joint project with TC2.1 (Physiology & Human Environment) and TC9.6 (Health Care Facilities).

RTAR-1560 Installed performance of vibration isolators – Robert Simmons prepared initial draft.

Discussion: Topics for Future Research:
Top topics discussed during the past seven research subcommittee meetings:

1. Review the room effect (include effect of single pass ceiling systems)
2. Tones
3. Fluctuations
4. Silencer system effects
5. Piping noise for equipment
6. Effect of HVAC noise in hospitals
7. Fan elbow effect
8. BIM
9. Flow noise generation in ducts

These topics keep recurring meeting after meeting, just waiting for a champion to prepare an RTAR. Please give these topics some consideration before the next meeting; perhaps, as a group, we can flesh out a scope for the high priority topics.
