HDD Vibration -- Thursday September 23 2021

Matt Shumway

Thursday September 23 4PM PST

Two topics for this meeting from the FB team. 
  1. A Vibro-acoustical surrogate that FB recently built and have been testing with. This is mostly for inspiration for phase 2 of the workstream as we might have areas that need improvement. (20mins including Q&A)
  2. Multi-disciplinary optimization analysis (cost vs performance vs thermal, etc) to point at optimal chassis level solutions to reduce acoustical and structural vibrations at HDD. This is interesting on the simulation side and optimization side to help design a chassis without going through multiple revs of it. (30 mins including Q&A
