  • Measuring Road Traffic Noise

    As part of an overall measurement programme to monitor road traffic noise in Århus (Denmarks second largest city), the Local Authority set up a noise measurement station on one of the major approach roads to Århus Harbour. This noise measurement station continually measures noise levels and can give a round-the-clock picture of noise level variations. Like most other districts, Århus Local ...

  • 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 ...

  • Power-fold actuator noise diagnostics using statistical envelope analysis

    A good correlation between subjective evaluation and objective test is a key for any machine condition monitoring and fault diagnosis process. This paper proposes a statistical envelope analysis approach for product quality control where Fourier spectrum is selected as diagnosis analysis characteristics. The acceptance amplitude envelope is statistically calculated from the measured random ...

  • New method of monitoring transmission accuracy in automotive gear mechanisms

    Measurement of Transmission Errors (TE) in gear mechanisms is the effective method for evaluation of their NVH parameters. It is especially important for various automotive axles in all-wheel-drive vehicles, where NVH standards are very high. A new method using mathematical Spline Interpolation allows increasing measurement accuracy through application of Rotary Encoders. The most revolutionary ...

  • Laying the foundations for greener transport — TERM 2011: transport indicators tracking progress towards environmental targets in Europe

    The European Council, at its summit in Cardiff in 1998, requested that the Commission and transport ministers focus their efforts on developing integrated transport and environment strategies. At the same time, and following initial work by the European Environment Agency (EEA) on transport and environment indicators, the joint meeting of the Transport and Environment Council invited the ...

  • Calculating capacity at composting sites

    The addition of new composting facilities or expansion of capacity at existing ones is becoming more and more difficult as feasible sites are taken out of circulation. This has created interest in maximizing the unit production of compost at composting sites so that they perform as efficiently as possible. The need is especially acute if physical expansion is not possible, but increases in ...
