Abstract

Some enclosures for data processing machines have rectangular side walls and end walls and have a top in the form of a frame that is open to exhaust the cooling air that is blown past the components of the machine. All enclosures for a particular family of machines have a standard width but have different lengths for different machines. The length of the top is also different for different machines, and the top includes a muffler structure that is different for different machines.
