Session Titles and Descriptions for NoiseCon 2007
Technical Activity 6.0: Transportation Noise
6.1 Tire/pavement Interaction Noise -- OBSI - Go back
Organizers: Judith Rochat, Terry Dossey
Tire/pavement interaction noise substantially contributes to overall highway traffic noise levels. Many measurement methodologies are being applied to measure tire/pavement noise. One such method is the developing On-Board Sound Intensity (OBSI) measurement methodology, which measures tire/pavement noise at the source. We invite experts to present papers related to OBSI, including methodology descriptions, applications of the method or data, and analysis results based on OBSI data. This is a specific session on tire/pavement interaction noise; please refer to the general session on tire/pavement interaction noise for presenting on topics other than OBSI.
6.2 Tire/pavement Interaction Noise -- General - Go back
Organizers: Judith Rochat, Paul Burge
Tire/pavement interaction noise substantially contributes to overall highway traffic noise levels. The international community has increased efforts to better understand how to measure, quantify, model, report, compare, and apply policy to tire/pavement noise data and quieter pavements. We invite experts to present papers related to these topics. This is a general session on tire/pavement interaction noise; please refer to the session specifically on the On-Board Sound Intensity (OBSI) measurement methodology for presenting on that topic.
6.3 Noise from Transit Systems - Go back
Organizer: Deborah Jue
We invite papers relating to noise generated by the variety of systems used to transport the public (e.g., rapid transit, light rail, municipal bus, automated people movers, etc.) and its impact on the surrounding environment (residential neighbors, schools, offices, hospitals, etc.)
Paper topics which address the following topics are encouraged:
- Recent case studies involving analysis involving the FTA "Transit Noise and VIbration Assessment" (updated May 2006) and those which explore issues that are not (fully) addressed by the FTA guidelines.
- Noise analysis and criteria for novel transit systems and applications
- Innovations in noise control methods applicable to transit systems
- Noise emissions from hybrid vehicles and charging facilities
6.4 Aircraft Noise - Consolidated with session 8.2
6.5 Aircraft Interior Noise - Go back
Organizers: Mark Downing, Jerry Farstad
The organizers of this session kindly request contributions in the area of aircraft interior noise. We invite authors to submit papers and particularly encourage submissions on noise control applications or case studies. This session will encourage attendee participation to gain the benefit of shared experiences and lessons learned. The organizers listed above are also interested to hear from you on this topic. Please do not hesitate to call or write if you have questions or suggestions. Should you have a colleague who would like to participate please feel free to forward this information to them and have them contact us.
6.7 Automotive Noise - Go back
Organizers: Jim Thompson, Teik Lim
Papers on all aspects of automotive noise, including interior noise simulations, measurements, and applications for NVH refinement are of interest.¬¨‚Ä† Also, case studies on practical noise control approaches in automotive systems are especially welcomed.
6.8 Marine Noise Control - Consolidated with session 6.3
6.9 Space System Noise and Vibration - Consolidated with session 6.10
6.10 Space System Aero and Vibro-acoustics - Go back
Organizers: Paul Blelloch, Haisam Osman
This session will cover all aspects of launch vehicle and missile aero and vibro-acoustics, including fluctuating pressure loads from both the propulsion system and turbulent boundary layer, as well as internal noise and vibration predictions and measurements.
