Abstract

The increasing traffic rate experienced by regional airports in Europe in recent years has had various impacts on the communities living near to the airport areas. To mitigate the negative effects of aviation noise, airports, particularly those close to dwellings and communities, [...]

Abstract

Measurement of the structure-borne sound energy flow through pipes has been studied for the purpose of transmission path ranking. This paper describes the measuring methods for frequencies below the cut-off frequency of the n = 2 shell mode. The methods show a strong analogy with [...]

Abstract

International audience; Electric or hybrid vehicles are very silent, which represents a major advantage for the reduction of noise annoyance in urban areas. But this makes them dangerous for pedestrians, especially vulnerable ones as visually-impaired people. Current solutions consist [...]

Abstract

Anthropogenic noise is of increasing concern to biologists and medical scientists. Its detrimental effects on human health have been well studied, with the high noise levels from air traffic being of particular concern. However, less is known about the effects of airport noise pollution [...]

Abstract

"jats:p"The target of analyse was to determine the exposure levels to the staff on the vessel and ensure adequate measures are in place to minimize the exposure when necessary. Noise levels through the vessel will be compared to the noise code detailed in section 2 of this report. [...]

Abstract

The effectiveness of a cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) scan depends on the ability of the operator to correctly tune the acquisition parameters to the subject being scanned and on the potential occurrence of imaging artefacts such as cardiac and respiratory motion. In the [...]
