  • Aircraft noise valuation studies and meta-analysis

    Aircraft noise has a negative impact on consumer welfare in the regions affected. One of the consequences is that property values decrease. This paper gives a survey of studies from various countries on the relationship between the volume of aircraft noise and the values of dwellings. A meta-analysis is carried out to arrive at a synthesis of these studies and to find factors that explain the ...

  • Entropy approach for mitigation of environmental aviation impact and airport capacity increase

    The implementation of the operational procedures to reduce aircraft noise and engine emission in the airport vicinity was under consideration in the paper. Emphasis was put on optimal aircraft operational procedures for noise and emission reduction taking into account interrelations of aircraft noise and engine emission. The task of minimising of aircraft noise impact and engine emission ...

  • The Vienna airport mediation: point of view of the Vienna Ombuds-Office for Environmental Protection

    A history of increasing citizen opposition to the continuous increase in aircraft traffic and associated noise around Vienna airport came to a head because neither the airport authority nor the local authority consulted local interest groups about plans for a third runway. Eventually, the airport operating company decided to address public concerns and set up an environment mediation process. The ...

  • How does living with aircraft noise affect wellbeing? A study of UK airports

    Airports are associated with air and noise pollution and may, therefore, reduce the quality of life of local people. This study assessed the link between aircraft noise and subjective wellbeing, using data from 17 English airports. The authors conclude that living under flight paths has a negative effect on people’s overall wellbeing, equivalent to around half of the effect of being a ...

  • Canarina CUSTIC software · noise mitigation · commands 7

    The program window is a XY-plane (parallel to the land surface). A noise source is represented by a small square. In the Status bar at the bottom, we have X and Y coordinate values in meters and data on our environmental system. Point the mouse where you want in the program window and the X and Y values will be shown in the status bar at the bottom. On the left bottom corner, two different text ...

    For an external source, the noise level equation is   Leq=LW-20Log(r)-11dB(A)   where r is the distance and LW the source power. However, for an industrial complex, the next equation will be used: ...

  • A study of noise transmission through cylindrical shell using modal truncation approach

    The study of the vibroacoustic behaviour of cylindrical structure like aircraft fuselage requires the establishment of very large models, and the numerical results which can be obtained are often difficult to interpret. On the other hand, the study of simple structures such as cylindrical shells is useful to validate the criteria and tools that can be used to simplify the models of complex ...

    5. Understanding the Workplace The MS Windows bar doesn’t appear. In this way, you have more space to draw. However, and if you want, you can modify the properties of the MS Windows bar in the Microsoft Windows system. The program window size is fixed and it cannot modify. The menu bar lists the menus shown above. When you choose one of the menus, the program displays a pull-down list of ...

  • Geotechnical Geophysics: Seismic refraction and refraction microtremor (ReMi) surveys

    ReMi Surveys are superior to MASW Surveys in the following ways: Ambient (ie, traffic and aircraft) “noise” is a hindrance to MASW surveys, yet is readily embraced / utilized by “passive” ReMi surveys Longer ReMi data records (ie, 30 seconds vs 8 seconds or less with MASW) capture lower frequency events We introduce high frequency impulsive energy that ...

  • Noise and its Link to Mental Health

    Today marks World Mental Health Awareness Day, and it’s one of the most important awareness events of the year. In the last few years, mental health awareness has dramatically improved, meaning that people who for too long have suffered in silence, are now getting the help and treatment they need. Several recent studies have shown a strong link between exposure to excessive noise levels and ...

  • Good practice guide on noise exposure and potential health effects

    The Expert Panel on Noise (EPoN) is a working group that supports the European Environment Agency and European Commission with the implementation and development of an effective noise policy for Europe. The group aims to build upon tasks delivered by previous working groups, particularly regarding Directive 2002/49/EC relating to the assessment and management of environmental noise. This good ...

  • Accelerating with Bugatti

    When the Bugatti Owners’ Club established itself in 1929, its members didn’t really have too much to worry about when it came to issues such as road congestion and noise. But just as cars have moved on with the times so has the Club. The Club applies a strict noise level threshold for competing cars at their renowned meetings on Prescott Hill near Cheltenham, ...

  • Noise Pollution – More Than Just an Inconvenience

    A raft of new global studies are all pointing to how noise pollution can seriously affect your health – and you don’t need to be living directly under a flight path to be affected. Separate studies carried out over recent years claim to have found links that noise pollution can affect everything from your waist size to the weight of unborn babies and even the recovery rate of ICU ...

  • Environmental Noise

    Introduction The ability to hear sounds is a sensory function vital for human survival and communication. However, not all sounds are wanted. 'Unwanted sounds', for which the term 'noise' is normally used, often have their origin in human activities (mainly transport, industry and households). This article addresses environmental noise ­ also referred to in the scientific literature as ...

  • Noise Planning Software Used to Map Major EU Roadways

    Most countries have a national noise policy to protect citizens from undesirable environmental noise levels from road, rail and air traffic and industrial sources. The European Noise Directive for the Assessment and Management of Environmental Noise outlines a coordinated method to achieve noise reduction in large cities as a first step, followed by smaller cities as a second step. The ...
