  • Publication number: 20240096145
    Abstract: A noise generation cause identifying method and a noise generation cause identifying device are provided. A response correcting process corrects a sound signal obtained through a sound signal obtaining process based on obtained model information so that a frequency response of the obtained sound signal approaches a frequency response of a learning sound signal. A variable obtaining process obtains a variable output from a map by inputting the corrected sound signal to the map. A cause identifying process identifies a generation cause of a sound picked up by a microphone using the variable obtained through the variable obtaining process.

  • Publication number: 20220333873
    Abstract: The present invention reduces and mitigates thermal stress generated at joint portions between a header plate and a flat tube of a heat exchanger. In a direction of a vertical center axis passing the center of the inside of a flat tube, positions of first brazing parts are set to be closer to the center of the flat tube in the direction of the vertical center axis than positions of edge brazing parts. Accordingly, the thermal stress concentrated at the joint portions between short sides of the flat tube and the header plate is dispersed to other portions.
