A system developed by Geislinger of Salzburg, Austria, to suppress structureborne noise emitted by diesel engines is described. It consists of a tuned elastically-damped (GED) coupling to counter torsional vibrations, combined with one or two flexible link couplings. This provides the angular and axial flexibility required to accommodate misalignment and isolate noise transmission. It illustrates how noise suppression efforts are concentrating on tuning and optimizing vibration control components.
