  • Estimating exposure to excessive noise in cities

    The 2002 Environmental Noise Directive seeks to provide a uniform basis for measuring and addressing noise pollution, one of the most important urban environmental issues for the EU. New research has assessed city-dwellers' exposure to noise and proposes traffic management strategies to reduce harmful levels. Clear evidence is growing for wide-ranging negative health effects of noise pollution, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Urban greening reduces noise pollution

    Green roofs have the potential to significantly reduce road traffic noise in the urban environment, according to a new study. The results suggest that greening of roofs and walls with materials suitable for growing plants softens the urban environment keeping sound levels low, whereas hard, manmade structures tend to amplify traffic noise. The Environmental Noise Directive (2002/49/EC)1 ...

  • Sound noise testing solutions for ensuring Noise at Work compliance

    When it comes to ensuring compliance with the Noise at Work Regulations (2005) in an industrial setting such as a factory, workshop, warehouse or a construction site, one thing is for sure: you need outstanding noise testing and noise monitoring technology to obtain the best results. The Noise at Work ...

  • New monitoring system for neighbourhood noise

    Sound and vibration expert Bruel & Kjaer UK has launched its MATRON 3 Ultra Light – a noise monitoring system designed to help local authorities with swifter set up during neighbourhood noise investigations. This new entry-level model to Bruel & Kjaer UK’s successful neighbour noise monitoring family - MATRON 3 - takes less than one minute to set up. The user only has to open up the tripod, ...

  • Noise exposure estimation methods compared

    It is difficult to compare estimates of noise exposure across EU Member States because the methods used to produce the data vary between countries. A new study has investigated five methods of estimating noise exposure and identified some of the reasons for variation in the data they produce. In order to comply with the European Noise Directive (END)1, EU Member States have produced ...

  • `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 ...
