About US



Ahmad Bayat, P.E.

Mr. Bayat is the founding principal of Vibro-Acoustic Consultants with more than 25 years of extensive design and management experience.

During his career, Mr. Bayat has worked and directed many projects involving power plant modifications, structural design, dynamic & earthquake analyses, mechanical equipment evaluation to ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code, and building vibration and noise control.

In the areas of vibration and noise control, Mr. Bayat has worked on the microvibration design of low-vibration facilities for many microelectronics clients, R&D facilities, and specialty structural dynamic projects. The design includes finite element modeling & analysis of the structures, dynamic soil-structure interaction analyses, design and specification of vibration isolation systems, and noise specification and design.
