Noise Impact Assessment Africa
WKC is proud to announce that it has been awarded a contract to deliver a noise impact assessment for a new 200MW wind farm in East Africa. Wind power capacity in the region is expected to increase by around 12 gigawatts by 2040. The project will convert wind into useful energy utilising an array of highly efficient land based wind turbines. The first phase of the project entails a noise screening study which will assist the Project engineers with the initial layout and array optimisation aimed at minimising...
Measuring Noise Outdoors
If you are looking for a data logging integrating averaging sound level meter to undertake your environmental, vehicle and outdoor noise monitoring, we recommend that you take a look at the Pulsar Quantifier range. Pulsar Instruments is not new to this type of application. Its staff have worked with many organisations ranging from construction to engineering and entertainment industries to source the right system and combination to support their noise monitoring activities. Some years ago, the company launched...
Time to set standards for mapping noise and stick to them
SoundPLAN, the leading international expert designer and provider of acoustics and air pollution simulation software for environmental modelling, is calling on the bodies responsible for setting noise standards around the world to ensure that they implement and maintain high quality standards with thorough test procedures and scenarios. The USA’s Federal Highway Administration’s Traffic Noise Model (TNM) is identified as an example of poor practice in this arena. When testing the standards SoundPLAN...
Flying Eurofighter noise mapped by Brüel & Kjær
Airbus Defence and Space and Brüel & Kjær have successfully completed noise measurements on the Eurofighter jet, to calculate its on-ground noise exposure under different thrust and flight configurations.The noise measurements were made by repeatedly flying the jet over a Brüel & Kjær data acquisition system collecting data from a 29m diameter array of microphones laid out on the ground. The researchers from the joint project will now use the data to build a complex software model...
Noise mapping and prediction to the latest standards
Brüel & Kjær has announced new enhancements to Predictor-LimA, its powerful and intuitive noise mapping and prediction software. This update means that Predictor-LimA now provides:•Internationally recognized proof of calculation method compliance according to ISO 17534 software quality assurance•Compliance of CNOSSOS-EU, the European Union’s new mandatory calculation method for Environmental Noise Directive-compliant strategic noise maps •Compliance with the latest standards...
