Module overview

This module provides an understanding of human responses to sound and vibration in the environment, and how such environmental stimuli are measured and assessed. People judge the success or failure of any efforts in noise and vibration control, so their responses should be understood and anticipated.

The module also shows:

  • The main effects of noise and vibration on people.
  • How to identify relevant variables and how they can be combined to make quantitative predictions of human responses to noise and vibrations.
  • How to use standards and regulations that have been developed to provide a framework for the objective evaluation of noise and vibration.
  • How to provide a basic understanding of alternative approaches to assessment that might be adopted in particular case.
