Abstract Minicomputers installed in offices, together with their peripheral equipment, are sources of noise. Cooling fans, disk drives and printers are especially important sources. Noise can be reduced by changes in the office environment (e.g., carpeting) and by redesign of the equipment. Examples show how cases can be redesigned to reduce the noise radiated by ducts and vents, fans themselves can be redesigned to reduce aerodynamic noise, and the mechanical properties of impact printer platens can be altered to minimize their amplitudes of vibration.
