Sperry-Vickers' Systems Science Laboratory (Troy, Mich.) has recently completed a program analyzing and reducing noise on mobile vehicles. While plugging holes in the cab insulation eliminates outside airborne noise, the noise generated inside the cab from structure, valves and piping is more difficult to pinpoint and control. The Sperry-Vickers program singled out hydrostatic drive systems and their variable-displacement pumps as prime targets in noise control. This article summarizes some of the tips and techniques that were developed during the program to control noise.
