Airport Noise Consultants
Canarina Algoritmos Numericos has been an airport noise consulting firm. Our focus has remained solely on providing one-on-one, custom solutions for acoustic issues at airports and surrounding communities. Aircraft noise is produced during various phases of a flight: on the ground while parked such as auxiliary power units, while taxiing, on run-up from propeller and jet exhaust, during take off, underneath and lateral to departure and arrival paths, over-flying while en route, or during landing. A moving aircraft causes compression and rarefaction of the air, producing motion of air molecules. This movement propagates through the air as pressure waves. If these pressure waves are strong enough and within the audible frequencyspectrum, a sensation of hearing is produced. There are health consequences of elevated sound levels. Elevated workplace or other noise can cause hearing impairment, hypertension, ischemic heart disease, annoyance and sleep disturbance.
