In Part 1, we covered modal analysis, the Timoshenko differential equation of vibration, and the type of material to use for a design. Here, we’ll cover whether to use a rectangular or cylindrical enclosure, maximum recommended height, the effect of wall thickness, and the impact of orientation on performance.
