Engineers in the Noise and Vibration group at Southern Research Institute will conduct a free, one-day workshop on noise and vibration testing at the Engineering Research Center on April 20. The workshop is intended for engineers, technicians or individuals with a basic engineering background.

"Noise and vibration testing is an increasingly important topic in many industries, including on-road and off-road transportation, aerospace, utilities, and manufacturing," said Percy Wang, Ph.D., manager of the Noise and Vibration group at Southern Research. "This workshop will provide both a basic and more in-depth understanding of noise and vibration testing, and how it can be used to better understand and resolve engineering problems across a wide range of industries."

"Applications for Noise and Vibration Testing" is a free, one-day workshop being offered at the Southern Research Engineering Research Center, 757 Tom Martin Drive, in Birmingham, Ala.

  The workshop will consist of two sessions:
   - Morning Session: 90 minutes of interactive lecture covering the basics
     of noise and vibration testing
   - Afternoon Session: Hands-on laboratory activities to reinforce concepts
     learned during the morning session
   - The workshop will also include a brief tour of the Southern Research
     Engineering Research Center.

  After completing this workshop, participants will understand:
   - The language of sound (noise) and vibration testing
   - The scientific principles behind noise and vibration testing
   - How noise and vibration engineering can be applied to practical, day-
     to-day engineering challenges as well as complex, advanced engineering
   - How to better assess the need for noise and vibration testing on the

Because of the individual, hands-on participation in this program, space is limited to 20 participants. Registration will close April 10. For further information, call 205-581-2532 or visit the workshop Web site at
