Gear Dynamics and Gear Noise Short Course
(September 18 - 21, 2017)

About Us

The Gear Dynamics and Gear Noise Short Course will be taught by two most leading professors and researchers in these fields.
DR. DONALD HOUSER is the co-course organizer and will lecture on gear design, gear noise excitations, gear modeling, and the measurement of gear dynamics and gear noise. He is Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering and Founder of the Gear Dynamics and Gear Noise Research Laboratory at Ohio State.  He has been active in gear dynamics research for over 45 years and has served as a consultant for numerous companies.  Dr. Houser is past Chairman of ASME's Power Transmission and Gearing Committee, past Chairman of ASME's Gear Noise Committee, a member of AGMA Noise Committee, and author of gear noise chapters in Gear Handbook (D. Townsend, editor) and Handbook of Noise & Vibration Control (M. Crocker, editor). 
DR. RAJENDRA SINGH is the course organizer and directs the Acoustics and Dynamics Laboratory at Ohio State.  He is well recognized for research in geared system vibration and noise, bearing-casing dynamics, gear rattle analysis and nonlinear driveline dynamics (over the past 37 years at Ohio State).  He has published more than 500 articles, and is a fellow of ASME, ASA, SAE, and INCE/USA. He has received several national awards for both teaching and research.  Dr. Singh has developed and teaches an innovative graduate course sequence in automotive noise and vibration control in partnership with General Motors.  He has served as the President of the Institute of Noise Control Eng. in 2003.
