  • Noise Measurement

    Definitions Threshold and criterion levels The threshold level is the A-weighted sound level at which a personal noise dosimeter begins to integrate noise into a measured exposure. For example, if the threshold level on a sound level meter is set at 80 decibels (dB), it will capture and integrate into the computation of dose all noise in the employee's hearing zone that equals or exceeds 80 dB. ...

  • Vehicle power-train noise refinement using the Taguchi method

    This paper involves an introduction of an approach to reduce powertrain noise where the Design Of Experiments (DOE) has been implemented. Decoupling tests have been conducted on a test car to identify the engine noise transmission paths into the cabin. Under each coupling/decoupling combination, sound pressure levels at ear locations have been measured and evaluated in the second gear slow ...

  • Is The `Beep` Noise Pollution?

    It is rare these days that you can be somewhere without noise pollution intruding on some level. Many natural noises may be welcome; a dawn chorus or waves breaking on the beach, but when it comes to man-made decibels it’s a different matter. Never mind the sounds of cars, ring tones and other noises that we take for granted, have you ever noticed how utterly surrounded we are by the humble ...

  • Noise in the Animal Shelter Environment: Building Design and the Effects of Daily Noise Exposure

    Sound levels in animal shelters regularly exceed 100 dB. Noise is a physical stressor on animals that can lead to behavioral, physiological and anatomical responses. There are currently no policies regulating noise levels in dog kennels. The objective of this study was to evaluate the noise levels dogs are exposed to in an animal shelter on a continuous basis and to determine the need, if any. ...

  • Using neural networks to identify annoying noises in vehicles

    Previous papers have developed a methodology to characterise squeaks and rattles. Thus, for each noise, its origin and the means for eliminating it, are known. This paper describes the work done towards the development of a tool, based on neural networks, that determines if a squeak or rattle corresponds to any of the noises already characterised. Different types of neural networks have been ...
