  • Turn down the noise — softening the impact of excess transport noise

    As a major contributor to greenhouse gases, the transport sector figures high on the international climate change agenda.

Clearly, transport noise's long-term impacts fall a long way short of the apocalyptic projections for unabated ...

  • `Anti-noise` silences wind turbines

    If wind energy converters are located anywhere near a residential area, they must never become too noisy even in high winds. Most such power units try to go easy on their neighbors' ears, but even the most careful design cannot prevent noise from arising at times: One source is the motion of the rotor blades, another is the cogwheels that produce vibrations in the gearbox. These are relayed to ...
