    Abstract : A rapid growth of installed wind power capacity is expectedin the next few years. However, the siting of wind turbines ona large scale raises concerns about their environmental impact,notably with respect to noise. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analyses and Application of Ambient Seismic Noise in Sweden : Source, Interferometry, Tomography

    Author : Hamzeh Sadeghisorkhani; Ólafur Gudmundsson; Ari Tryggvason; Roland Roberts; Frederik Tilmann; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Seismic interferometry; Ambient noise; Surface wave; Wave propagation; Inverse theory; Sweden; Geofysik med inriktning mot seismologi; Geophysics with specialization in Seismology;

    Abstract : Ambient seismic noise from generation to its application for determination of sub-surface velocity structures is analyzed using continuous data recordings from the Swedish National Seismic Network (SNSN). The fundamental aim of the thesis is to investigate the applicability of precise velocity measurements from ambient noise data. READ MORE

  3. 3. Masking of wind turbine sound by ambient noise

    Author : Karl Bolin; Mats Åbom; Sten Ljunggren; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Acoustics; Akustik;

    Abstract : The main objective of this work was to gain an increasing understanding of the properties of vegetation noise and also to the relative ratios of different natural ambient noises to mask wind turbine sound. A discrete vegetation noise model was developed and compared to an earlier model showing improved estimations, especially at frequencies below 0. READ MORE

  4. 4. Wind Turbine Noise and Natural Sounds : Masking, Propagation and Modeling

    Author : Karl Bolin; Mats Åbom; Jens Forssén; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wind turbine noise; models of natural sound sources; masking; Acoustics; Akustik;

    Abstract : Wind turbines are an environmentally friendly and sustainable power source. Unfortunately, the noise impact can cause deteriorated living conditions for nearby residents. The audibility of wind turbine sound is influenced by ambient sound. This thesis deals with some aspects of noise from wind turbines. READ MORE

  5. 5. Diffusion-Induced Nonlinear Dynamics in Carbon Nanomechanical Resonators

    Author : Christin Edblom; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; mass sensing; graphene; stochastic differential equations; diffusion; carbon nanotubes; resonators; nanoelectromechanical systems; equations of motion; nonlinear dynamics; dissipation; Fokker-Planck equation; noise; nonequilibrium dynamics;

    Abstract : The emergence of nanoelectromechanical systems has enabled the development of sensors capable of detecting mass, charge, force, position, and spin with an unprecedented precision. In particular, the low mass, high resonant frequency, and high quality factor of carbon nanomechanical resonators make them ideal for the creation of a high sensitivity mass sensor. READ MORE
