Title:
USE OF AIRCRAFT CABIN SURFACES TO GUIDE AIRFLOW AND SOUND
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2011/133603
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
An interior ceiling panel system (10) includes a ceiling panel (38) mounted in a ceiling area (14), a first airflow directing panel (44) in a first side of the ceiling area defining an airflow passage, and a second airflow directing panel (54) in a second side of the ceiling area, defining an eddy space (64). An airflow supply source (34) introduces airflow into the ceiling area, and the second airflow directing panel (54) provides an obstruction that creates an eddy (66) in the eddy space (64) that mixes incoming airflow with air in the cabin. One or more speakers (70a, b) project sound energy upward toward the ceiling panel (38), which deflects sound energy to provide more uniform sound levels in the cabin.
