The present paper describes some experiments on the essential characteristics of the noise and vibration excited on a thin tube while being honed on its inner wall surface. This includes features such as the mutual relations between noise generation, vibration of the tube and honing conditions, and also describes the cause of vibration. Firstly, experiments were carried out to synthesize the mode shapes of vibration on the tube by analyzing the dynamic responses of the tube to impulse hits. In the next experiments, the noise and vibration were simultaneously measured in relation to each position of the tool on the inner wall surface of the tube during the actual honing process.

The results of these experiments show that the noise was caused by self-excited vibration on the tube, and the mode shape of vibration on the tube was not fixed during honing, but translated to other modes following the movement of the honing position of the tool. Moreover, even when a mode shape is excited by the short movement of the tool, the loop and node of the mode shape on the circumference of tube move in the revolving direction of the tool with the movement of the tool.
