  2. 2. Human response to wind turbine noise perception, annoyance and moderating factors

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Department of Public Health and Community Medicine, Institute of Medicine, The Sahlgrenska Academy, Göteborg University

    Author : Eja Pedersen; Högskolan i Halmstad.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Noise; Environmental exposure; Wind; Audio-visual interaction; Low-level noise exposure; wind turbines; noise annoyance; sound perception; audio-visual interaction; low-level noise exposure;

    Abstract : Aims: The aims of this thesis were to describe and gain an understanding of how people who live in the vicinity of wind turbines are affected by wind turbine noise, and how individual, situational and visual factors, as well as sound properties, moderate the response.Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried out in a flat, mainly rural area in Sweden, with the objective to estimate the prevalence of noise annoyance and to examine the dose-response relationship between A-weighted sound pressure levels (SPLs) and perception of and annoyance with wind turbine noise.

  3. 3. Annoyance, quality- and safety aspects of sound in truck cabins

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Department of Public Health and Community Medicine, Institute of Medicine, The Sahlgrenska Academy, Göteborg University

    Author : Anders Genell; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; low frequency; product sound quality; spectral balance; annoyance;

    Abstract : For heavy vehicles the interior sound environment is still more or less just apassive result of the engineering of the different parts that make up the vehicle,although measures are taken to keep sound pressure level within legislatedboundaries. Additionally, the sound inside truck cabins is dominated by itslow frequency (LF) content, and is hence prone to impair task performance andreduce wakefulness as well as cause general annoyance and different adversehealth effects.

  4. 4. Low frequency noise during work. Effects on performance and annoyance

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Johanna Bengtsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Low frequency noise; performance; workload; annoyance; cortisol; subjective stress; subjective sensitivity to noise; sound characteristics; frequency balance; modulation frequency;

    Abstract : Aims. Low frequency noise (LFN) is defined as "a noise with a dominant frequency content of 20 to 200 Hz". Common sources of LFN in occupational environments are ventilation, heating and air-conditioning systems, computer network installations and compressors. READ MORE
