  • IUTAM Symposium on Designing for Quietness

    It is well known that noise control at the source is the most cost-effective. Designing for quietness is therefore the most important concept in Engineering Acoustics or Technical Acoustics. The IUTAM Symposium on Designing for Quietness held at the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore in December 2000, was probably the first on this topic ...

  • Eddy Structure Identification in Free Turbulent Shear Flows

    The existence and crucial role played by large-scale, organized motions in turbulent flows are now recognized by industrial, applied and fundamental researchers alike. It has become increasingly evident that coherent structures influence mixing, noise, vibration, heat transfer, drag, etc. This volume contains selected papers from the IUTAM ...

  • Knowledge Discovery in Spatial Data

    This book deals with knowledge discovery and data mining in spatial and temporal data, seeking to present novel methods that can be employed to discover spatial structures and processes in complex data. Spatial knowledge discovery is examined through the tasks of clustering, classification, association/relationship, and process. Among the covered ...

  • Increasing Seismic Safety by Combining Engineering Technologies and Seismological Data

    Too often the Earth’s surface acted as a divide between seismologists and engineers. Now it is becoming clear that the building behaviour largely depends on the seismic input and the buildings on their turn act as seismic sources, in an intricate interplay that non-linear phenomena make even more complex. These phenomena are often the cause of ...

  • Transport, Trade and Economic Growth - Coupled or Decoupled?

    Over the past decade, the transport industry has become an increasingly popular scapegoat for polluting the environment with emissions and noise. Therefore, additional transport infrastructure investments, especially in road transport, are becoming more and more contentious. Conversely, the advocates of free trade stress the importance of ...

  • Advances in Brain, Vision, and Artificial Intelligence

    This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Second International Symposium on Brain, Vision and Artificial Intelligence, BVAI 2007, held in Naples, Italy, October 10-12, 2007.The 50 revised papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from more than 80 submissions for inclusion in the book. The papers address the following main ...

  • Electrochemical Noise Measurement for Corrosion Applications

    Presents a state-of-the-art review on electrochemical noise as it is applied to corrosion today. Many diverse industrial applications for electrochemical noise measurement (ENM) are presented along with the latest laboratory methods of analysis techniques.

    Petroleum road tanker drivers: Evaluation and exposure to noise

    Petroleum road tanker drivers may be exposed to moderate, but potentially significant, levels of noise exposure whilst at work.This publication reviews the health effects of noise and occupational exposure data from several companies. It also reviews sources of noise and suggests methods to reduce exposure to as low as is reasonably ...

  • Arrays and Array Methods in Global Seismology

    In recent years, the increased availability and fidelity of broadband seismic instruments have effectively narrowed the gap between exploration and global seismic applications. Global seismologists are now able to take advantage of high-resolution, often exploration-based, tools to examine rock properties tens to hundreds of kilometers below ...

  • Natural Physical Sources of Underwater Sound

    The generation of oceanic sound by natural physical mechanisms is a topic of scientific inquiry with a wide range of applications, both environmental and naval. Sound is generated by waves interacting, by waves breaking, by wind noise transmitted directly into, and by rain, snow and spray falling onto the water. Sound is also generated in ...
