Abstract

One of the approaches for noise reduction in pipeline transport systems lies in the selection of appropriate fasteners. Therefore, it is important to know how different pipe holders change vibrational behavior of the pipe. This paper investigates the influence of clamping elements on modal vibrations of the pipe. A measurement method is proposed for determination of the damping factor that appears due to the insertion of a pipe holder.
