The dodo Raphus cucullatus Linnaeus, 1758, an extinct and flightless, giant pigeon endemic to Mauritius, has fascinated people since its discovery, yet has remained surprisingly poorly known. Until the mid-19th century, almost all that was known about the dodo was based on illustrations and written accounts by 17th century mariners, often of...

In the present study relations between the level of impulse sounds and the observed proportion of behaviorally confirmed awakening reactions were determined. The sounds (shooting sounds, bangs produced by door slamming or by container transshipment, aircraft landings) were presented by means of loudspeakers in the bedrooms of 50 volunteers. The...

Er bestaat al jaren behoefte aan meer inzicht in de slaapverstoring die omwonenden ondervinden van impulsachtige geluiden ten gevolge van containeroverslag in havengebieden en het laden en lossen in winkelcentra. Ter bepaling van de kans op ontwaakreacties als functie van het geluidniveau werden 22 proefpersonen gedurende 15 nachten thuis in hun...

Recent issues concerning low frequency aircraft noise around airports (groundnoise) and a legal verdict about the application of low frequency noise criteria in the Netherlands have been the motivation to start a research commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment. One of the objectives is to investigate...

About two decades ago, Vercammen proposed a rating procedure for low frequency sounds. To enable refinements of this procedure, the present study addressed a few spectral and temporal issues. The investigation was carried out in the laboratory with 56 subjects ranging between 20 and 60 years of age. To increase our insight into the spectral...

The objective of the present laboratory studies was to enable refinements of the current rating procedure for low frequency sounds. To increase our insight into a relevant spectral issue, groups of adjacent frequency bands around 40, 50, and 63 Hz were presented at various sound level combinations. It was concluded that an energy-based summation...

The annoyance caused by environmental sounds is only in part related to the noise dose. Nonacoustic factors have systematic effects on annoyance also. In the present literature study we explored what nonacoustic factors may be considered as potential tools to reduce the annoyance. Studies designed to test the effect of the nonacoustic factors in...

In the Netherlands mopeds are rated to be the most annoying sound source. In spite of the fact that so many residents are annoyed by the moped passby sounds, a dose-response relationship has, to the knowledge of the author, never been reported. In the interest of an adequate prevention or reduction of the community response to moped sounds, it...

We reviewed the literature on the availability of auditory tests that determine, prior to being affected by significant hearing loss, to what extent an individual is susceptible to noise. The predictive power of tests that determine the acoustic reflex responsivity, and both temporal integration and non-linearities of the hearing system, may be...

In the present study a previously developed weighted summation model is tested both for simultaneously and for successively presented sounds from a main battle tank (Leopard-2), gunfire (pistols and rifles), and civil road traffic. For the simultaneous presentation mode, the results obtained both with the help of a rating scale and with the...

In a laboratory study, the annoyance caused by the passby sounds from a magnetic levitation (maglev) train was investigated. The listeners were presented with various sound fragments. The task of the listeners was to respond after each presentation to the question: "How annoying would you find the sound in the preceding period if you were...

In a previous study on the annoyance caused by a great variety of shooting sounds [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 109, 244-253 (2001)], it was shown that the annoyance, as rated indoors with the windows closed, could be adequately predicted from the outdoor A-weighted and C-weighted sound-exposure levels [ASEL (L(AE)) and CSEL (L(CE))] of the impulse...

As an alternative to the A-weighted sound exposure level (ASEL) Schomer et al. [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 110, 2390-2397 (2001)] used the equal-loudness level contours as a dynamic filter to determine the loudness-level-weighted sound exposure level (LLSEL). From their analyses they concluded that the LLSEL better orders and assesses traffic and...

A laboratory study was conducted to examine the relationship between noise annoyance and the proportion of heavy vehicles in a mixture of trucks and passenger cars. Twenty normal-hearing subjects were asked to judge the annoyance caused by the sounds from a continuous stream of vehicles, assuming they were exposed to it at home on a regular...

A laboratory study was designed in which the annoyance was investigated for 14 different impulse sound types produced by various firearms ranging in caliber from 7.62 to 155 mm. Sixteen subjects rated the annoyance for the simulated conditions of (1) being outdoors, and (2) being indoors with the windows closed. In the latter case, a...

Na installatie van palen voor de fundering van een gebouw wordt de eis gesteld dat het draagvermogen van de paal en de stijfheid voldoende zijn. Internationaal wordt veel meer aandacht besteed aan de controle van draagvermogen van een funderingspaal dan in Nederland. In Nederland beperken wij ons tot grondonderzoek, de ontwerpnormen en het...
