Noise Control

The technology of obtaining an acceptable noise environment.

The basic system is:

Source - Path - Receiver

Based on this system there are three areas in which to control the noise:

  1. Control at source - this is the most effective and cost effective solution.

  2. Control at path to reduce noise propagation - this is can be applied to just the routes that are most important.

  3. Reception control - this is very local.
