  • Noise Mapping in Lille

    Lille, with a population of 1091 million inhabitants is the 4th largest agglomeration in France after Paris, Lyon, and Marseille. Situated at the heart of a network of 464 km motorways connecting six European cities (Brussels, Bonn, the Hague, London, Luxembourg and Paris), the metropolis of Lille also has the densest railway network of France after Paris. Pascal Thomas and his team of 8 ...

  • Noise mapping of industrial sources

    Noise is often one of the environmental variables where it seems more difficult to guarantee full compliance with legal limits in complex industrial situations and/or in other multi-source environments. This paper describes the application of noise mapping techniques to industrial sources, such as factories, power plants, wind farms, showing the potential of its use, both at the design stage as ...

  • Noise mapping of roads in England

    Landmark Solutions, the UK provider of geospatial information, solutions and services, was selected by DEFRA as the prime contractor to carry out noise mapping for the Potteries area of the West Midlands. This work forms part of the Government’s National Ambient Noise Strategy (NANS), part of which is focused on mapping noise levels from roads, railways, aircraft and industrial sites across ...

  • Procedures to analyse noise maps in connection with noise action plans

    After finishing of the noise mapping of the European Noise Directive1” the noise action planning follows. This part of the END-projects concerns with measures for noise reduction in general and in detail and information and collaboration of the public. In this process a huge amount of measures and alternatives accumulates. Therefore automatic working tools for evaluation of the measures and ...

  • Calibrated aerial photos ease noise mapping

    Calibrated Aerial Photos Ease Noise Modelling For smaller projects or where geographical vector data is missing, using aerial photos is an elegant solution for helping build environmental noise calculation models. With Predictor 7810’s new GeoReference function, aerial photos and map images can be easily calibrated according to your local coordinate system. The coordinate ...

  • An Industrial Noise Map is Basic to Hearing Conservation

    An Industrial Noise Map Is Basic to Hearing Conservation In the U.S., OSHA has set regulations on worker noise exposure. The usual measurement method is to use a portable noise dosimeter attached to a worker that measures noise exposure as the person moves about the work area. However, this does nothing to identify the source and location of the noise. When conducing a noise survey, a noise ...

  • In-situ noise level mapping for vehicle floor carpet

    Noise level mapping of test vehicles' floor carpets was undertaken for three frequency bands, that is, low-(2,000 Hz) to compare noise control treatment performance and effectiveness. On-road tests including idling conditions and constant speed tests of 40, 60 and 80 kph were undertaken. Noise level contour maps indicate that the luxury class test vehicle ...

  • Creating an entire country`s noise map - Case Study

    To comply with the European Union’s Environmental Noise Directive 2002/49/EC, member states are required to create updated noise maps for large urban areas and major transportation sources every five years. The English government commissioned a single project to calculate sound levels across the whole of England which resulted in the world's biggest noise map. ...

  • UK Research Reveals Lima as Fastest Noise Mapping Package

    In June 2006, Hepworth Acoustics Limited presented two papers at Euronoise 2006 in Tampere, Finland (see www.bksv.com/4112.asp) on research carried out for the United Kingdom government into noise mapping calculation time. The research was carried out in support of Defra’s Noise Research Advisory Service (NRAS) contract and studied the effect of calculation efficiency ...

  • Queensland Rail – An example in effective noise mapping and noise control implementation for existing rail operations

    There is an increasing trend in the world today to model noise impacts of city-wide infrastructure such as rail, road and industrial activities.  This is particularly true of the European Union, which sought to produce an integrated approach across member states to predict city-wide long term average noise levels. The outcome of such an exercise usually results in production of noise ...

  • END noise mapping – the sustainable solution of the german federal railway authority, review to an outstanding

    The Federal Railway Authority of Germany was tendering 2006 a sustainable noise mapping system to fulfil the needs of the END (European Noise Directive). The aim of the project was to develop a system which contains all required model data and results for the first level of the EU noise mapping. In addition the system should be an integrated software solution to explore the model data. It should ...

  • Canarina CUSTIC software · noise calculation · algorithms 3

    In a road case, we shall consider several points.  We shall consider a minimum number of 1000 vehicles per hour N with a 50km/h minimum velocity (100km/h is the maximum velocity). Then we have a 68 dB(A) noise level at 10m from a lineal road (infinity length). The noise level will be,   ...

  • Ready for the future with CNOSSOS-EU!

    The Environmental Noise Directive 2002/49/EC which appeared in 2002 raised the question among those who are “experts in noise” how noise mapping and noise action planning should be implemented throughout Europe. They all agreed that, in view of the completely different calculation methods in the European countries, the calculation results reached and exposure figures collected would ...
