IAC Acoustics (MURL – Melbourne, Victoria, Australia)
IAC Acoustics required design verification of circular and rectangular silencer designs for the Melbourne Underground Rail Loop (MURL). Thermal-structural assessment of the stainless steel silencers and casings was required to verify structural integrity of the silencer and casing components and welded and bolted and riveted connections considering elevated temperature operation.
What we did:
Avesta Consulting verified overall structural integrity of the circular and rectangular silencers and confirmed design compliance with component strength and welded joint fatigue requirements, considering a 400°C peak operating temperature.
