Advanced Course in Noise Control  Event

12 - 16 September 2011

Event details

Noise in industry, in the work place, and in the community can potentially degrade quality of life. In extreme cases, exposure to high noise levels can be hazardous. The implementation of effective and economic noise control requires an appreciation of the fundamentals of acoustics and modern techniques for its measurement and characterisation. This Advanced Course in Noise Control outlines the underlying principles of noise control, examines the character of noise in some key applications, and discusses how noise may be reduced by design or through palliative treatment. The course is divided into three sections: Basic principles, Techniques, and Applications and Case histories. There is a three-day core element of the course. This is preceded by an optional two-day refresher course in the principles of vibration and acoustics.
