Title Vibration damping of circular saws
Bibliographic information 1989, Vol.69, No.6, p.270-275. Illus. 10 ref.
Abstract An idealised theoretical approach was used for calculating the viscous losses due to a thin layer of air between a vibrating plate and a rigid wall or a sound-absorptive wall. Damping is in both cases of the same order of magnitude. Loss factor measurements were performed on a model saw equipped with a rigid Plexiglas wall. Installation of a Plexiglas plate on a full-size circular saw so that a 0.6mm air layer was created between the rigid plate and the saw blade reduced the noise level by about 7dB.
