Noise abatement definition: a set of strategies or techniques to reduce and control annoying or harmful noise in an | Meaning, pronunciation, translations and examples. Abatement is one of the means to resolve existing noise problems. The Government has implemented noise abatement programmes such as the School Insulation Programme, brushed concrete as a road surface can contribute significantly to urban road noise levels due to the interaction of tyres with this rather rough surface.   City planners have often many and innovative solutions for how to create a ’good urban milieu’. However, these ideas are mainly focused on accommodating visual aesthetics with necessary practical matters for transport, waste and energy. The dynamic sound perspectives in the urban environment, such as sonic diversity and acoustic ecology, are still very much neglected . Analysis of traffic noise abatement strategies Article (PDF Available) in The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America 69(1) January with 9 Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Noise abatement has gotten easier but you still need to pay attention to local rules to stay out of trouble. Here's a quick primer: Noise Standards — Noise abatement procedures basically start from the need to meet ICAO standards in what are known as "chapters" from ICAO An Vol I and that filters down to individual countries. In the United States they are contained in 14 CFR 36 to. - noise of industrial and commercial activity, recreation and sports ; - neighbourhood noise (special unit for the handling of complaints) ; - prevention by taking noise into consideration in planning documents: Local Urban Plan (PLU), Urban Transport Plan (PDU), the layout of public space (urban form and furnishings, etc) ;.

Computer simulations of traffic sound levels were performed to evaluate the probable effectiveness of several hypothetical noise abatement strategies in reducing residential exposure to traffic sound. These simulations were performed for 28 actual census tracts in six cities which were chosen to be representative of the urban United : Gregory W. Cermak, Calvin R. von Buseck, John G. Cervenak, Robert D. Blanchard.

Mitigation measures for traffic noise abatement in urban areas Article (PDF Available) in Gradevinar 57(01) January with Reads How we measure 'reads'. The measures taken to reduce the emission of unwanted sounds/vibrations in a given environment. Commonly referred to within; 1. Aviation: the procedures adopted to reduce aircraft noise on takeoff and landing - accomplished by reducing the power setting or avoiding densely populated areas. 2. Sex: the methods adopted to reduce the noise of fucking in an area surrounded by people.   Noise canceling headphones or smartphone apps are among the cheaper noise canceling options. Hearing aid type devices are also available, but are much more expensive. 4. Earplugs. Sometimes the simplest solutions are the most effective. If nighttime noise keeps you awake, earplugs could be your ticket to sweet slumber. Designed to accompany the new Open University course in Environmental Monitoring and Protection, this is one of four new titles which will equip the reader with the tools to undertake Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs). Used in planning, decision-making and management, EIAs review both the theoretical principles and environmental considerations of engineering and environmental projects to Author: Shahram Taherzadeh.
