Noise pollution: A threat to our mental and physical well?being  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

While noise may not yet be in the forefront of the environmental movement it is being recognized worldwide as a major environmental pollutant. In New York City noise is the number one quality of life complaint far outweighing other quality of life complaints and throughout the United States it has been noted as a major reason for people moving from their homes. Although there is a need for additional research to confirm the health/noise link the World Health Organization has already recognized noise pollution as a serious health issue. There is certainly sufficient research to warrant warnings that noise is injurious to mental and physical health. Yet despite this growing body of literature attesting to the relationship between noise and health impacts government bodies have not yet invested the dollars needed to abate noise nor to educate people to the dangers of noise. Organizations such as the League for the Hard of Hearing the Noise Pollution Clearinghouse and the United Kingdom Noise Network have assumed the tasks of educating the public to the harmful effects of noise of advocating anti?noise measures and of urging public officials to move more assertively in lessening the din of our ever?increasing noisy society.

Science and the management of underwater noise: Information gaps and polluter power  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

To regulate underwater noise rationally and efficiently we need to know its impact on population and community biology. This link can rarely be studied directly because of logistics and the spatial and temporal scales of ecological processes. There are two principal approaches: correlational studies of noise levels with population events or measures; and experiments in which the response variables (usually short?term behavioral measures) are poor proxies for the population and ecosystem parameters about which we are concerned. Experimental studies also have costs. These may include the introduction of additional noise delay of substantive regulation and when polluters are major funders perceived gagging or biasing of knowledgeable scientists. This is a particular problem with underwater noise because the U.S. Navy (a major noise polluter) and allied organizations fund so much acoustic research. Consequently (a) managers must recognize that underwater noise is dangerous but its most important consequences cannot currently be determined; (b) following the precautionary approach noise levels should be reduced sources distanced from marine life and new noises avoided; (c) correlational studies are generally preferred to experimental ones; (d) major noise polluters should not directly fund the research instead providing fees to independent bodies which commission research and recommend regulations.

Effect of long-term outdoor air pollution and noise on cognitive and psychological functions in adults  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract It has been hypothesized that air pollution and ambient noise might impact neurocognitive function. Early studies mostly investigated the associations of air pollution and ambient noise exposure with cognitive development in children. More recently, several studies investigating associations with neurocognitive function, mood disorders, and neurodegenerative disease in adult populations were published, yielding inconsistent results. The purpose of this review is to summarize the current evidence on air pollution and noise effects on mental health in adults. We included studies in adult populations (?18 years old) published in English language in peer-reviewed journals. Fifteen articles related to long-term effects of air pollution and eight articles on long-term effects of ambient noise were extracted. Both exposures were separately shown to be associated with one or several measures of global cognitive function, verbal and nonverbal learning and memory, activities of daily living, depressive symptoms, elevated anxiety, and nuisance. No study considered both exposures simultaneously and few studies investigated progression of neurocognitive decline or psychological factors. The existing evidence generally supports associations of environmental factors with mental health, but does not suffice for an overall conclusion about the independent effect of air pollution and noise. There is a need for studies investigating simultaneously air pollution and noise exposures in association mental health, for longitudinal studies to corroborate findings from cross-sectional analyses, and for parallel toxicological and epidemiological studies to elucidate mechanisms and pathways of action.

The impact of an urban park on air pollution and noise levels in the Mediterranean city of Tel-Aviv, Israel  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This study examines the influence of urban parks on air quality and noise in the city of Tel-Aviv, Israel, by investigation of an urban park, an urban square and a street canyon. Simultaneous monitoring of several air pollutants and noise levels were conducted. The results showed that urban parks can reduce NOx, CO and PM10 and increase O3 concentrations and that park's mitigation effect is greater at higher \\{NOx\\} and PM10 levels. During extreme events, mean values of 413ppb \\{NOx\\} and 80 ?G/m3 PM10 were measured in the street while mean values of 89ppb \\{NOx\\} and 24 ?G/m3 PM10 were measured in the park. Whereas summer highest O3 values of 84ppb were measured in the street, 94ppb were measured in the park. The benefit of the urban park in reducing \\{NOx\\} and PM10 concentrations is more significant than the disadvantage of increased O3 levels. Furthermore, urban parks can reduce noise by ?5 dB(A).

Air Pollution  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Both natural processes and human activities contribute to air pollution, with the combustion of fossil fuels being the largest anthropogenic source of air pollutants. Adverse health effects (above all respiratory and cardiovascular complications), damage to crops, natural vegetation and materials, reduced visibility and changed radiation balance of the atmosphere are the major consequences of high concentrations of air pollutants. Technical fixes can sharply reduce emissions from large stationary sources and lower the rates of automotive emissions, but the rising number of vehicles and longer time spent on the road will call for more radical solutions to traffic-generated photochemical smog now present in all major urban areas.

Eisenbeis, Supt. of Conservation STREAM POLLUTION The pollution of surface waters in the United States is one of man's most shameful and dangerous crimes against himself. It is ruining one of the nation's basic resources by rendering water unfit for human consumption and unsuitable for many industrial or domestic uses. Pollution is particularly alarming near most big cities, but, emptied into rivers and creeks, other communities may feel its effect a hundred or more miles downstream. Even in remote or rural regions, it originates as wastes from mines, paper mills, canneries and creameries . A lot of the pleasure of living is taken away because our streams and lakes are fouled and spoiled for bathing, boating, fishing and other recreations. Further, the health hazard is very real. Unless such waters are boiled or chlorinated there is danger from typhoid, dysentery and many other diseases.

A neural network based model for urban noise prediction  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Noise is a global problem. In 1972 the World Health Organization (WHO) classified noise as a pollutant. Since then most industrialized countries have enacted laws and local regulations to prevent and reduce acoustic environmental pollution. A further aim is to alert people to the dangers of this type of pollution. In this context urban planners need to have tools that allow them to evaluate the degree of acoustic pollution. Scientists in many countries have modeled urban noise using a wide range of approaches but their results have not been as good as expected. This paper describes a model developed for the prediction of environmental urban noise using Soft Computing techniques namely Artificial Neural Networks (ANN). The model is based on the analysis of variables regarded as influential by experts in the field and was applied to data collected on different types of streets. The results were compared to those obtained with other models. The study found that the ANN system was able to predict urban noise with greater accuracy and thus was an improvement over those models. The principal component analysis (PCA) was also used to try to simplify the model. Although there was a slight decline in the accuracy of the results the values obtained were also quite acceptable.

Gas turbine noise control  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The use of gas turbine powered generators and pumping stations are likely to increase over the next two decades. Alternative fuel systems utilizing fluidized coal beds are likely in the near future and direct combustion of pulverized coal is also a possibility. The primary problem of generally unacceptable noise levels from gas turbine powered equipment affects both community noise and hearing conservation alike. The noise criteria of such plant remain a significant design factor. The paper looks at the technical and historical aspects associated with the noise generation process and examines past present and possible future approaches to the problem of silencing gas turbine units; adequately specifying the acoustical criteria and ratings; evaluates the techniques by which these criteria should be measured; and correlates these with the typical results achieved in the field.

Particle number fluctuations in nuclear collisions within excluded volume hadron gas model  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The multiplicity fluctuations are studied in the van der Waals excluded volume hadron-resonance gas model. The calculations are done in the grand canonical ensemble within the Boltzmann statistics approximation. The scaled variances for positive, negative and all charged hadrons are calculated along the chemical freeze-out line of nucleus-nucleus collisions at different collision energies. The multiplicity fluctuations are found to be suppressed in the van der Waals gas. The numerical calculations are presented for two values of hard-core hadron radius, $r=0.3$ fm and 0.5 fm, as well as for the upper limit of the excluded volume suppression effects.

A first step toward a close proximity noise map  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In recent years environmental noise has become a serious issue for civil infrastructure and environmental administration due to public concern over the subject of noise pollution. The most significant deterioration of environmental acoustics conditions comes from road traffic transportation. The predominant noise source is the combination of the tire/pavement interaction and the propulsion systems of the vehicles. Generally tire/pavement interaction is the principal source of noise for speeds above 40 km/h in the case of most modern cars. In this research geo?referenced close proximity rolling noise is used for acoustical characterization of asphalt concrete surfaces in an urban environment. A close proximity noise map of streets with low speed limits is presented for a reference speed of 50 km/h. Different pavements and pavement conditions common in urban streets are analyzed: dense and semidense asphalt concrete with Spanish denomination D?8 and S?12 respectively and on the other hand dense pavement at the end of its service life (D?8*). Noise levels from dense surfaces (D?8) increase significantly over time principally due to the appearance of surface defects such as cracks and ruts.

Noise?insulation requirements for multi?family dwellings  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Noise insulation standards are part of the California Administrative Code (Title 25 Section 1092). These standards apply to all new multi?family dwelling units such as hotels apartments duplexes townhouses and condominium units. Detached single?family dwellings are specifically excluded. The standards establish minimum requirements for the isolation of interior spaces from exterior noise and set minimum ratings for noise insulation of partitions between dwelling units. A community noise equivalent level (CNEL) of 45 dB is set as the maximum for intrusive noise from exterior sources such as rail or road traffic or aircraft operations. American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) testing procedures for party wall and floor/ceiling system sound transmission provide the basis for setting minimum acceptable performance for separations between units. As a consultant to builders planners and architects the site planning and design of residential projects have been examined and field evaluations have been performed on completed projects. Building designs and the selection of suitable building elements (wall construction composites window assemblies vent configurations etc.) which assure compliance with the standards have been identified. The paper provides a brief description of the standards their enforcement pitfalls and an assessment of their impact on residential construction in California.

Shot Noise in Graphene  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We report measurements of current noise in single-layer and multilayer graphene devices. In four single-layer devices, including a p-n junction, the Fano factor remains constant to within ±10% upon varying carrier type and density, and averages between 0.35 and 0.38. The Fano factor in a multilayer device is found to decrease from a maximal value of 0.33 at the charge-neutrality point to 0.25 at high carrier density. These results are compared to theories for shot noise in ballistic and disordered graphene.

Geothermal Noise Control  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In these times of growing need for new energy sources geothermal has shown great promise. Geothermal is a green relatively nonpolluting energy source that can provide power on a scale large enough to make a significant contribution to our needs. One of the challenges of geothermal development is noise emission. This occurs after a well encounters steam and before a plant is constructed. It also arises from the necessity of shutting down a power plant for periodic maintenance. While the power plant is down the steam and noise is vented to the atmosphere.

Control of Noise in Power Station Cooling Tower Systems  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Power?station cooling tower systems must handle large volumes of water and air with large potential energy in the water flows and the requirement for large fans. To minimize the noise generated at power station sites use is made of efficient tower fill materials dual low?speed fans (which shifts the spectrum and lowers mid?frequency noise level) and barrier effects in tower location and orientation. Conventional noise control measures such as mufflers are avoided because of the required increase in pressure across the fan and the high initial cost for quieting large towers. The use of natural draft towers is discussed and it is shown that although the low?frequency noise may be reduced the noise levels at typical property line locations are of the same order of magnitude as that for conventional mechanical cooling towers. Since cooling towers at power stations are required as an environmental (thermal) pollution control measure a trade?off between temperature rise of local water supplies versus increases in community noise becomes a critical factor.

Controlling the turbocharger whistling noise in diesel engines  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Turbochargers are now commonly used in passenger cars especially in application with diesel engines because of their numerous advantages. The use of this machine greatly improves engine performance, while at the same time allowing pollutant emissions to be reduced. However, one of the important issues to take into account when a turbocharger is used in passenger cars is the whistling noise due to unbalanced forces that can be perceived by the driver, which causes discomfort. The manufacturer's efforts to reduce the whistling noise are centred on reducing the unbalanced forces by a correct balance of rotating parts. However, improving the balance means increasing the manufacturing cost as this process is very expensive. Selecting the maximum unbalance admissible is a key activity during the development of a new application. In this paper, a procedure to control the turbocharger whistling noise vs. unbalanced forces variation has been suggested in order to maintain the acoustic comfort of the vehicle.

Ionic Asymmetry and Solvent Excluded Volume Effects on Spherical Electric Double Layers: A Density Functional Approach  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In this article we present a classical density functional theory for electrical double layers of spherical macroions that extends the capabilities of conventional approaches by accounting for electrostatic ion correlations, size asymmetry and excluded volume effects. The approach is based on a recent approximation introduced by Hansen-Goos and Roth for the hard sphere excess free energy of inhomogeneous fluids (J. Chem. Phys. 124, 154506). It accounts for the proper and efficient description of the effects of ionic asymmetry and solvent excluded volume, especially at high ion concentrations and size asymmetry ratios including those observed in experimental studies. Additionally, we utilize a leading functional Taylor expansion approximation of the ion density profiles. In addition, we use the Mean Spherical Approximation for multi-component charged hard sphere fluids to account for the electrostatic ion correlation effects. These approximations are implemented in our theoretical formulation into a suitable decomposition of the excess free energy which plays a key role in capturing the complex interplay between charge correlations and excluded volume effects. We perform Monte Carlo simulations in various scenarios to validate the proposed approach, obtaining a good compromise between accuracy and computational cost. We use the proposed computational approach to study the effects of ion size, ion size asymmetry and solvent excluded volume on the ion profiles, integrated charge, mean electrostatic potential, and ionic coordination number around spherical macroions in various electrolyte mixtures. Our results show that both solvent hard sphere diameter and density play a dominant role in the distribution of ions around spherical macroions, mainly for experimental water molarity and size values where the counterion distribution is characterized by a tight binding to the macroion, similar to that predicted by the Stern model.

Description of Hot and Dense Hadron Gas Properties in a New Excluded-Volume model  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

A new equation of state for a hot and dense hadron gas (HG) is obtained where the finite hard-core size of baryons has been incorporated in a thermodynamically consistent formulation of excluded volume correction. Our model differs from other existing approaches on the following points. We assign a hard-core volume only to each baryon and mesons though possess a small volume but they can fuse and interpenetrate into one another. Use of the full quantum statistics is made in obtaining the grand canonical partition function where excluded-volume correction has been incorporated by explicitly integrating over volume. We thus find that the new model works even for the cases of extreme temperatures and/or densities where most of other approaches fail. The model does not violate causality even at extreme densities. The temperature and density dependence of various thermodynamical quantities, e.g. pressure, baryon density, entropy and energy density compare well with the results of other microscopic HG models. After suitable parametrization of the centre-of-mass energy in terms of temperature and baryon chemical potential, we explore some new freeze-out criteria which exhibit full independence of the collision energy and of the structures of the colliding nuclei. We further demonstrate the suitability of our model in explaining various experimental results of the multiplicity-ratios of various particles and their antiparticles. Finally, we use our excluded-volume model to obtain the transport behaviour of the hot and/or dense HG such as shear viscosity to entropy ratio, speed of sound etc. and compare the results with earlier calculations.

Bifurcated Endograft (Excluder) in the Treatment of Isolated Iliac Artery Aneurysm: Preliminary Report  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of endovascular repair in the treatment of isolated iliac artery aneurysm (IAA) using Excluder bifurcated endograft. Eight consecutive patients with IAA were treated during a period of 45 months using Excluder bifurcated endograft. Two patients presented with isolated IAA rupture and were treated emergently, whereas the other six patients underwent elective treatment. All aneurysms lacked sufficient proximal necks and therefore were not suitable for tubular-shaped endograft. Follow-up imaging was performed at 1 week, at every 3 months during the first year, semiannually until 2 years, and annually afterward using angio-computed axial tomography and plain films. Technical success was achieved in all patients. No mortality was seen despite two patients having IAA rupture. Follow-up (12 to 60 months) was done in all but one patient. During this period, complications were observed in three patients. One patient developed sexual impotence at 3-month follow up; one patient presented unilateral gluteal claudication after the procedure, which resolved at 3 months; and one patient developed a graft porosity-related endoleak, which was successfully managed with placement of an additional ipsilateral iliac extension. Endovascular treatment of isolated IAA using bifurcated endograft is safe and can be an alternative to surgical treatment. The benefits from decreased morbidity and mortality of endoluminal treatment of isolated IAA using bifurcated endograft outweigh the minor complications associated with this technique, which are mostly related to occlusion of hypogastric arteries.

Nuclear-spin noise  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The spectral density of the Nyquist noise current in a tuned circuit coupled to a sample of nuclear spins has been measured at He4 temperatures with a dc SQUID used as a rf amplifier. When the sample is in thermal equilibrium, a dip is observed in the spectral density at the Larmor frequency. For zero spin polarization, on the other hand, a bump in the spectral density is observed. This bump is due to temperature-independent fluctuations in the transverse component of magnetization, and represents spontaneous emission from the spins into the circuit.

Noise from Centrifugal Fans  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The sound power radiated from the discharge of centrifugal fans of diameters between 3 and 6 1 2 ? inches has been measured as a function of fan dimensions and operating conditions. The measurements were made by arranging the fan under test to discharge into an 11 foot nonreflecting tube in which the static pressure could be controlled. Air was exhausted from the tube through a side port of high acoustic impedance located part way down the tube. The detectingmicrophone which is located in the tube between the exit port and the acoustic termination is out of the air stream and therefore not subject to wind noise. The total discharge noise power P in watts in the range 75 to 10 000 cps was found empirically to be given by P?=?0.90?×?10 ?4 (D/W)?H 3 ?+?5.2?×?10 ?10 (Q 5 /W 4 D 8 ) where D and W are the fan diameter and width respectively in inches H is the static pressure in inches of water and Q is the air flow in cubic feet per minute. The angular frequency of the fan wheel does not appear explicitly since this quantity is uniquely specified by H Q D and W. Spectral analysis indicates that the power is concentrated primarily at low frequencies. Application of the results of this study to design problems will be discussed.

Quantum noise in optical interferometers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We study the photon counting noise in optical interferometers used for gravitational wave detection. In order to reduce quantum noise, a squeezed vacuum is injected into the usually unused input port. It is investigated under which conditions the gravitational wave signal may be amplified without increasing counting noise concurrently. Such a possibility was suggested as a consequence of the entanglement of the two output ports of a beam splitter. We find that amplification without concurrent increase of noise is not possible for reasonable squeezing parameters. Photon distributions for various beam splitter angles and squeezing parameters are calculated.

Wind turbine aeroacoustic noise and noise mitigation strategies.  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Wind turbines are becoming an important piece of the solution to low?carbon power production. However as more turbines are installed near population centers the environmental impacts associated with these machines such as noise are also becoming more obvious. Aeroacousticnoise is generally thought to be the greatest source of acoustical noise in wind turbine systems. This study will present measurement results collected at the National Wind Technology Center on an operating wind turbine that characterize the total received acoustic field surrounding the turbine. Designs and preliminary measurements of trailing edge modifications to the outboard airfoil sections will be discussed as a means of partial noise mitigation. In addition future aeroacousticnoise treatments and measurement plans will be mentioned.

Steam Turbine Control Valve Noise  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Although noise problems with steam turbine control valves have existed before they have become more prominent with nuclear turbines whose valves range to 20 in. in diameter. Our first?generation nuclear control valves were unacceptably noisy when operating under chocked conditions. These noise levels have been ameliorated by incorporation of a valve cage with numerous small holes. Rational design rules for this “dispersive muffler” have been developed from published multiple?jet noise data and improved through our own tests. However we are also evaluating other low?noise valve configurations which are consistent with turbine requirements. The approach we are developing is to investigate the internal aerodynamic noisegeneration in small air model tests and to combine this with measurements of pipe?wall transmission characteristics (being reported separately) to predict externally radiated noise. These predictions will be checked in a new steam test facility for complete scale?model valves. The small air tests show that acoustic efficiencies of throttling valve flows tend to vary with third power of Mach number when exhausting into space and with a lesser power when enclosed in a downstream pipe. At some pressure ratios narrow?band spikes appear in the spectrum and for some configurations step changes in sound power are associated with transitions in flow regimes.

Chemotactic selection of pollutant degrading soil bacteria  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A method is described for identifying soil microbial strains which may be bacterial degraders of pollutants. This method includes: Placing a concentration of a pollutant in a substantially closed container; placing the container in a sample of soil for a period of time ranging from one minute to several hours; retrieving the container and collecting its contents; microscopically determining the identity of the bacteria present. Different concentrations of the pollutant can be used to determine which bacteria respond to each concentration. The method can be used for characterizing a polluted site or for looking for naturally occurring biological degraders of the pollutant. Then bacteria identified as degraders of the pollutant and as chemotactically attracted to the pollutant are used to innoculate contaminated soil. To enhance the effect of the bacteria on the pollutant, nutrients are cyclicly provided to the bacteria then withheld to alternately build up the size of the bacterial colony or community and then allow it to degrade the pollutant.

Chapter 3 - The Science of Air Pollution  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Air pollution is defined in various ways, with an introduction to numerous air pollutants in this chapter. The evolution of air pollution science, engineering, and technologies is discussed. The distinction between particulate matter and gaseous air pollutants is made. Particles are described physically, especially with regard to the importance of aerodynamic diameter in terms of human health effects. Stationary and mobile sources of air pollution are discussed, as well as the physical and chemical processes involved in chemical transformation and environmental fate. Air pollution engineering's evolution is considered. The chapter discusses in detail the development of air quality standards and the emergence of laws and regulations to address air pollution. The chapter concludes with a timeline of how air pollution has been perceived over history and how air pollution may change in the future.

Laser Noise Reduction in Air  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Fluctuations of the white-light supercontinuum produced by ultrashort laser pulses in selfguided filaments (spatio-temporal solitons) in air are investigated. We demonstrate that correlations exist within the white-light supercontinuum, and that they can be used to significantly reduce the laser intensity noise by filtering the spectrum. More precisely, the fundamental wavelength is anticorrelated with the wings of the continuum, while conjugated wavelength pairs on both sides of the continuum are strongly correlated. Spectral filtering of the continuum reduces the laser intensity noise by 1.2 dB, showing that fluctuations are rejected to the edges of the spectrum.

Noise cancellation: disrupting audio perception  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Noise cancellation: disrupting audio perception is an interactive sound and visual art installation that explores the creation of new technology - open-air active signal cancellation - and how it can be incorporated into interactive art installations. As an ongoing collaborative project between artist and engineer, noise cancellation engages signal processing research issues in a creative application space. This paper describes the collaborative installation work in progress and discusses why this active signal cancellation technology is important in relation to changing modes of listening and hearing, altering spatial perception and encouraging audiences to fully interact with art installations within art galleries (and related spaces).

Jet Noise Contribution to Wind Noise in Vehicles  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A source of “wind noise” in a vehicle with a slightly opened window has been modeled as a slit jet issuing from a plenum (idealized vehicle). The nondimensional power spectra measured inside and outside were quite similar; the curves collapsed together well when plotted against Strouhal number fD/U (f=frequency D=slit width U=jet nozzle velocity). The higher frequency sources of the jet noise being closer to the slit subtend a larger angle and would be expected to transmit more noise into the plenum. This expectation was confirmed with inward transmission increasing with both frequency and slit width; at 10 000 Hz and 1.5?in. slit width (maxima for these experiments with 80?fps jet velocity) the jet noise power transmitted inward through the slit reached 68% of the power emitted externally in the 1 3 ? oct band. These were exploratory tests and there was no external wind. [Work supported by Air Force Office of Scientific Research.

Oxy-fuel combustion systems for pollution free coal fired power generation  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Jupiter Oxygen's patented oxy-fuel combustion systems1 are capable of economically generating power from coal with ultra-low emissions and increased boiler efficiency. Jupiter's system uses pure oxygen as the combustion agent, excluding air and thus nitrogen, concentrating CO2 and pollutants for efficient capture with near zero NOx production, reducing exhaust mass flow, and increasing radiant heat transfer. Flue-gas recirculation rates can be varied to add flexibility to new boiler designs using this technology. Computer modeling and thermal analysis have identified important design considerations in retrofit applications.

Background noise spectra of global seismic stations  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Over an extended period of time station noise spectra were collected from various sources for use in estimating the detection and location performance of global networks of seismic stations. As the database of noise spectra enlarged and duplicate entries became available, an effort was mounted to more carefully select station noise spectra while discarding others. This report discusses the methodology and criteria by which the noise spectra were selected. It also identifies and illustrates the station noise spectra which survived the selection process and which currently contribute to the modeling efforts. The resulting catalog of noise statistics not only benefits those who model network performance but also those who wish to select stations on the basis of their noise level as may occur in designing networks or in selecting seismological data for analysis on the basis of station noise level. In view of the various ways by which station noise were estimated by the different contributors, it is advisable that future efforts which predict network performance have available station noise data and spectral estimation methods which are compatible with the statistics underlying seismic noise. This appropriately requires (1) averaging noise over seasonal and/or diurnal cycles, (2) averaging noise over time intervals comparable to those employed by actual detectors, and (3) using logarithmic measures of the noise.

Noise of cleanroom recirculation systems  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Recirculation air systems are used by the microelectronics industry as the primary source of unidirectional air flow in cleanrooms. The commonly used recirculation systems include: (1) packaged air handlers which include centrifugal or plug (plenum) fans generally located at fan deck level above the cleanroom; (2) fan?tower recirculation systems consisting most often of vertically mounted vaneaxial fans arranged along the cleanroom perimeter; (3) individual fan?filter units in which the HEPA or ULPA filters are combined with small direct drive blowers supported by the ceiling suspension system; and (4) minienvironments which create superclean conditions around individual tools within a less clean ‘‘ballroom.’’ In this paper the commonly used recirculation systems will be described typical sound power levels and spectrum characteristics of the systems will be presented the natural noise attenuation along the air flow paths will be listed the theoretical models for predicting noise levels in a cleanroom will be introduced and noise mitigation means which can be integrated into different systems will be discussed. Also presented will be the typical noise levels measured in operating cleanrooms.

Noise Levels due to Trains  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Some fifty freight and passenger trains were investigated at distances between 25 and 1000 ft. The decrease of sound?pressure levels with increasing distance indicates that whistles are to be considered as point sources but engines and track noise are line sources out to distances comparable with the lengths of the source. All engines showed a pure tone in the region of 100 cps and freight engines a second tone at about 300 cps when pulling hard. Otherwise freight engines showed little change in level whatever the operating conditions. Noise from passenger engines showed marked changes in level since they operate with much more exaggerated changes in power than freight engines. Track noise depends on the rolling stock—freight cars and run?of?the?mill passenger cars have very similar noise spectra whereas the deluxe cars used on “prestige trains” have spectra lying 10 to 20 db lower in all frequency bands. All the cars have coil springs but the latter alone have hydraulic shock absorbers.

Pollution prevention drives membrane technologies  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Currently, such membrane technologies as crossflow micro-, ultra-, and nanofiltration, reverse osmosis, electrodialysis and pervaporation offer interesting possibilities, each tackling a specific aspect of pollution control. Although none of these methods can, on its own, alter or break down pollutants, each has the ability to separate, fractionate and concentrate contaminants. In addition, they: permit continuous, uninterrupted processing via automatic control; use far less energy than traditional treatment methods; require only minimal temperature changes and no chemical additives; exert no impact on contaminants, and keep them physically separated from the stream; and are easy to install, either alone or combined with other treatment systems, since they are modular and contain few moving parts. The paper discusses the benefits and disadvantages of membrane technology and recommends thorough testing.

Underwater noise from three types of offshore wind turbines: Estimation of impact zones for harbor porpoises and harbor seals  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Underwater noise was recorded from three different types of wind turbines in Denmark and Sweden (Middelgrunden Vindeby and Bockstigen-Valar) during normal operation. Wind turbinenoise was only measurable above ambient noise at frequencies below 500 Hz. Total sound pressure level was in the range 109–127 dB re 1 ? ? Pa rms measured at distances between 14 and 20 m from the foundations. The 1/3-octave noise levels were compared with audiograms of harbor seals and harbor porpoises. Maximum 1/3-octave levels were in the range 106–126 dB re 1 ? ? Pa rms. Maximum range of audibility was estimated under two extreme assumptions on transmission loss (3 and 9 dB per doubling of distance respectively). Audibility was low for harbor porpoises extending 20–70 m from the foundation whereas audibility for harbor seals ranged from less than 100 m to several kilometers. Behavioral reactions of porpoises to the noise appear unlikely except if they are very close to the foundations. However behavioral reactions from seals cannot be excluded up to distances of a few hundred meters. It is unlikely that the noise reaches dangerous levels at any distance from the turbines and the noise is considered incapable of masking acoustic communication by seals and porpoises.

Hazard of intermittent noise exposures  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The chief shortcoming of the “equal energy” hypothesis—the notion that equal products of time and intensity provide equal hazard—is that the recuperative powers of the auditory system are essentially ignored. A single sustained stimulus is regarded as no more dangerous than an intermittent one of the same total energy. A two?year study of the effect of intermittency on the TTS produced in normal young adults by 6? or 8?h exposures to octave bands of noise whose center frequencies ranged from 250 to 4000 Hz indicates that even for the most hazardous noise (the 4000?Hz OB) cutting the cumulative exposure time in half by interjecting regular quiet periods will permit an increase in level of 5 dB for constant TTS at least up to about 100 dB SPL. At 1000 Hz the trading relation is 6–7 dB for halving time and at 250 Hz is even greater. Thus the 5?dBA?per?halving?time relation employed by the present OSHA standard is essentially correct for intermittent noise except perhaps above 100 to 105 dBA where the equal?energy hypothesis may be more appropriate for spectra with high?frequency dominance. A single 5?dBA “correction for intermittency” is an oversimplification. [Research supported by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Public Health Service.

Coating thermal noise for arbitrary shaped beams  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Advanced LIGO's sensitivity will be limited by coating noise. Though this noise depends on beam shape, and though nongaussian beams are being seriously considered for advanced LIGO, no published analysis exists to compare the quantitative thermal noise improvement alternate beams offer. In this paper, we derive and discuss a simple integral which completely characterizes the dependence of coating thermal noise on shape. The derivation used applies equally well, with minor modifications, to all other forms of thermal noise in the low-frequency limit.

Application of barrier in industrial noise control  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Noise barriers have been widely used in environmental noisecontrol such as traffic and railway noise. Actually they are also cost?effective mitigation measures in industrial noise control. In this paper the applications of noise barrier in power plant are introduced. Types of barrier and barrier materials are briefly summarized and compared. A case study of noise barrier implement in a 50 MW power plant is presented. The plant is a natural gas?fired simple?cycle peaking facility and consists of two opposed gas combustion turbine directly connected through a coupling to a single generator. Some residences are located around the facility. A noise barrier wall was designed and installed surrounding the facility to control the noiseimpact of the plant on the residences. The acoustic modeling software Cadna/A was used to predict the noise insertion loss of the barrier. The prediction results were also compared with the site measurements.

Reducing Indoor Residential Exposures to Outdoor Pollutants Reducing Indoor Residential Exposures to Outdoor Pollutants Title Reducing Indoor Residential Exposures to Outdoor Pollutants Publication Type Journal Article LBNL Report Number LBNL-51758 Year of Publication 2003 Authors Sherman, Max H., and Nance Matson Start Page Chapter Abstract Basic strategy for providing indoor air quality in residences is to dilute indoor sources with outdoor air. This strategy assumes that the outdoor air does not have pollutants at harmful levels or that the outdoor air is, at least, less polluted than the indoor air. When this is not the case, different strategies need to be employed to ensure adequate air quality in the indoor environment. These strategies include ventilation systems, filtration and other measures. These strategies can be used for several types of outdoor pollution, including smog, particulates and toxic air pollutants. This report reviews the impacts that typical outdoor air pollutants can have on the indoor environment and provides design and operational guidance for mitigating them. Poor quality air cannot be used for diluting indoor contaminants, but more generally it can become an indoor contaminant itself. This paper discusses strategies that use the building as protection against potentially hazardous outdoor pollutants, including widespread pollutants, accidental events, and potential attacks

Shot Noise in Ballistic Graphene  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We have investigated shot noise in graphene field effect devices in the temperature range of 4.2–30 K at low frequency (f=600–850??MHz). We find that for our graphene samples with a large width over length ratio W/L, the Fano factor F reaches a maximum F?1/3 at the Dirac point and that it decreases strongly with increasing charge density. For smaller W/L, the Fano factor at Dirac point is significantly lower. Our results are in good agreement with the theory describing that transport at the Dirac point in clean graphene arises from evanescent electronic states.

Optimum information in crackling noise  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The crackling noise due to scratching superhard nanocomposite coatings was investigated by using a simple stick-slip model. The optimum information extracted from statistical analysis, in terms of the Akaike information criterion, is in good agreement with real tests. As a nanocomposite coating approaches an optimal performance, the acoustic emission energy follows a power-law distribution and its behavior is likely to be independent of microscopic and macroscopic details. The results imply that a peculiar deformation behavior, due to the competition between different deformation mechanisms such as dislocation pileups in nanocrystalline grains and grain sliding-grain rotation within amorphous boundaries, plays a vital role in the nanostructure with superhardness.

Method oil shale pollutant sorption/NO.sub.x reburning multi-pollutant control  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A method of decreasing pollutants produced in a combustion process. The method comprises combusting coal in a combustion chamber to produce at least one pollutant selected from the group consisting of a nitrogen-containing pollutant, sulfuric acid, sulfur trioxide, carbonyl sulfide, carbon disulfide, chlorine, hydroiodic acid, iodine, hydrofluoric acid, fluorine, hydrobromic acid, bromine, phosphoric acid, phosphorous pentaoxide, elemental mercury, and mercuric chloride. Oil shale particles are introduced into the combustion chamber and are combusted to produce sorbent particulates and a reductant. The at least one pollutant is contacted with at least one of the sorbent particulates and the reductant to decrease an amount of the at least one pollutant in the combustion chamber. The reductant may chemically reduce the at least one pollutant to a benign species. The sorbent particulates may adsorb or absorb the at least one pollutant. A combustion chamber that produces decreased pollutants in a combustion process is also disclosed.

Noise exposures in US coal mines  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) inspectors conduct full-shift environmental noise surveys to determine the occupational noise levels to which coal miners are exposed. These noise surveys are performed to determine compliance with the noise standard promulgated under the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977. Data from over 60,000 full-shift noise surveys conducted from fiscal year 1986 through 1992 were entered into a computer data base to facilitate analysis. This paper presents the mean and standard deviation of over 60,000 full-shift noise dose measurements for various underground and surface coal mining occupations. Additionally, it compares and contrasts the levels with historical noise exposure measurements for selected coal mining occupations that were published in the 1970`s. The findings were that the percentage of miners surveyed that were subjected to noise exposures above 100%, neglecting personal hearing protectors, were 26.5% and 21.6% for surface and underground mining, respectively. Generally, the trend is that the noise exposures for selected occupations have decreased since the 1970`s.

A time history algorithm for aircraft noise  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In the course of the development of a comprehensive computer airport noisemodel offering a choice of noise metrics (see previous paper) the ASDS metric (“Aircraft Sound Description System”) required the computation of the time noise levels from aircraft flyover exceed specified thresholds. A package of subroutines was developed that performs a noise level time history simulation by tracking aircraft position and orientation along a three?dimensional flight path using variable time steps depending on the rate of noise level change. The A?weighted noise levels at observer positions are calculated for each time step from two three?dimensional models: a three?component jet engine noise emission model (front fan rear fan jet) where each component varies with engine thrust at a different rate; and a propagation model describing the excess attenuation of A?weighted levels as a function of distance. Both models use aircraft specific empirical parameters determined from measured spectral data and calibrated by comparing calculated and measured maximum A?weighted flyover levels for a range of practical distances. The subroutine package is capable of calculating threshold exceedance times cumulative distributions of noise levels and the time?integrated energy equivalent noise level from an aircraft flyover.

Characterization of vehicle noise in Hong Kong  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

There is a common perception among residents of high?rise buildings facing expressways that noise emitted from moving vehicles would be dominated by tire/road interaction and at high?frequency regions. Local government officials believe that the impact on residents of low?frequency noise radiated from car engines would be insignificant especially after the corrections for the A?weighting scale are applied. This paper reports on an extensive survey and some in situ sound measurements. It was found that road noise in Hong Kong is dominated by low?frequency noise emitted from heavy vehicles in expressways and by low?frequency noise emitted from heavy and light vehicles driven at a speed below 50 km/h in streets. The measured data were characterized by using time?averaged 1/1 octave band analysis time?averaged 1/3 octave band analysis and time?frequency analysis. The Doppler effect was clearly observed at low?frequency regions in joint time?frequency distributions. It is suggested that the A?weighting scale would not reflect the true annoyance level of traffic noise. Noisiness should be used to quantify the annoyance caused by moving vehicles. A new noise model is proposed to give a realistic description of noise radiated from a moving vehicle.

Stochastic accretion of planetesimals onto white dwarfs: constraints on the mass distribution of accreted material from atmospheric pollution  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

This paper explores how the stochastic accretion of planetesimals onto white dwarfs would be manifested in observations of their atmospheric pollution. Archival observations of pollution levels for unbiased samples of DA and non-DA white dwarfs are used to derive the distribution of accretion rates, confirming that rates become systematically lower as sinking time is decreased, with no discernable dependence on cooling age. The accretion rates expected from planetesimals that are all the same mass (ie, a mono-mass distribution) are explored both analytically and using a Monte Carlo model, quantifying how measured accretion rates inevitably depend on sinking time, since different sinking times probe different times since the last accretion event. However, that dependence is so dramatic that a mono-mass distribution can be excluded. Consideration of accretion from a broad distribution of planetesimal masses uncovers an important conceptual difference: accretion is continuous (rather than stochastic) for planete...

Looking for Hazardous Pollutants in Your Kitchen  

ScienceCinema (OSTI)

For decades, teams of Berkeley Lab scientists have investigated the ways that indoor air quality affects human health. In Berkeley Lab's test kitchen scientist Brett Singer and his team are measuring the pollutants emitted by cooking foods and evaluating how effective various range hoods are in capturing the pollutants. In an unprecedented recent study, the scientists estimated that 60 percent of homes in California that cook at least once a week with a gas stove can reach pollutant levels that would be illegal if found outdoors.

Chapter 4 - Air Pollution Decision Tools  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Different types of information must be evaluated and integrated to support means of addressing air pollution. Evidence-based is compared to precaution-based air pollution risk assessment. The entire spectrum of risk-based decision making is considered, including risk perception. Air pollution statistics and probability are discussed using examples and case studies, including radon, “black swan events”, toxic clouds such as the one in Bhopal, India and explosions and fires such as the one caused by the derailment in Lac-Mégantic in eastern Quebec, Canada.

Direct constraints on diffusion models from cosmic-ray positron data: Excluding the minimal model for dark matter searches  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Galactic cosmic-ray (CR) transport parameters are usually constrained by the boron-to-carbon ratio. This procedure is generically plagued with degeneracies between the diffusion coefficient and the vertical extent of the Galactic magnetic halo. The latter is of paramount importance for indirect dark matter (DM) searches because it fixes the amount of DM annihilation or decay that contributes to the local antimatter CR flux. These degeneracies could be broken by using secondary radioactive species, but the current data still have large error bars, and this method is extremely sensitive to the very local interstellar medium properties. Here, we propose to use the low-energy CR positrons in the GeV range as another direct constraint on diffusion models. We show that the PAMELA data disfavor small diffusion halo (L?3??kpc) and large diffusion slope models and exclude the minimal configuration [Maurin et al. Astrophys. J. 555, 585 (2001); Donato et al. Phys. Rev. D 69, 063501 (2004)] widely used in the literature to bracket the uncertainties in the DM signal predictions. This is complementary to indirect constraints (diffuse radio and gamma-ray emissions) and has a strong impact on DM searches. Indeed, this makes the antiproton constraints more robust while enhancing the discovery/exclusion potential of current and future experiments, like AMS-02 and GAPS, especially in the antiproton and antideuteron channels.

Dynamics of pulled desorption with effects of excluded volume interaction: The p-Laplacian diffusion equation and its exact solution  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We analyze the dynamics of desorption of a polymer molecule which is pulled at one of its ends with force $f$, trying to desorb it. We assume a monomer to desorb when the pulling force on it exceeds a critical value $f_{c}$. We formulate an equation for the average position of the $n^{th}$ monomer, which takes into account excluded volume interaction through the blob-picture of a polymer under external constraints. The approach leads to a diffusion equation with a $p$-Laplacian for the propagation of the stretching along the chain. This has to be solved subject to a moving boundary condition. Interestingly, within this approach, the problem can be solved exactly in the trumpet, stem-flower and stem regimes. In the trumpet regime, we get $\\tau=\\tau_{0}n_d^{2}$ where $n_d$ is the number of monomers that have desorbed at the time $\\tau$. $\\tau_{0}$ is known only numerically, but for $f$ close to $f_{c}$, it is found to be $\\tau_{0}\\sim f_c/(f^{2/3}-f_{c}^{2/3})$. If one used simple Rouse dynamics, this result changes to {\

Low noise charge ramp electrometer  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

An electrometer capable of measuring small currents without the use of a feedback resistor which tends to contribute a large noise factor to the measured data. The electrometer eliminates the feedback resistor through the use of a feedback capacitor located across the electrometer amplifier. The signal from the electrometer amplifier is transferred to a electrometer buffer amplifier which serves to transfer the signal to several receptors. If the electrometer amplifier is approaching saturation, the buffer amplifier signals a reset discriminator which energizes a coil whose magnetic field closes a magnetic relay switch which in turn resets or zeros the feedback capacitor. In turn, a reset complete discriminator restarts the measurement process when the electrometer amplifier approaches its initial condition. The buffer amplifier also transmits the voltage signal from the electrometer amplifier to a voltage-to-frequency converter. The signals from the voltage-to-frequency converter are counted over a fixed period of time and the information is relayed to a data processor. The timing and sequencing of the small current measuring system is under the control of a sequence control logic unit. 2 figs.

Noise Control of a Flare Stack  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

As part of its noise abatement program the Standard Oil Company of California has undertaken to reduce the noise radiated from the flare stacks serving the new process plants at the El Segundo Refinery. These flares used to burn excess refinery hydrocarbon gases have to operate smokelessly. To accomplish this high?pressure steam jets are used to discharge a turbulent steam?air mixture into the combustion zone. This system although muffled proved to be an intolerable source of noise in the adjacent community. An examination of the noise spectrum indicated that the mixing between the steam ejected from the 3 4 ? in. ? diam primary nozzle and the ambient air was a major source of noise. A series of exploratory model scale tests were conducted in an effort to reduce the noise. By replacing a single 3 4 ? in. ?diam nozzle with a multiple nozzle the radiated noise was reduced by 16 dB. The multiple nozzle configuration and the experimental program leading to its design are described.

Coherence and anticoherence resonance tuned by noise  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We present numerical evidence and a theoretical analysis of the appearance of anticoherence resonance induced by noise, not predicted in former analysis of coherence resonance. We have found that this phenomenon occurs for very small values of the intensity of the noise acting on an excitable system, and we claim that this is a universal signature of a nonmonotonous relaxational behavior near its oscillatory regime. Moreover, we demonstrate that this new phenomenon is totally compatible with the standard situation of coherence resonance appearing at intermediate values of noise intensity.

Low-noise macroscopic twin beams  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Applying a multiphoton-subtraction technique to two-color macroscopic squeezed vacuum state of light generated via high-gain parametric down conversion we conditionally prepare a new state of light: bright multi-mode low-noise twin beams. The obtained results demonstrate up to 8-fold suppression of noise in each beam while preserving and even moderately improving the nonclassical photon number correlations between the beams. The prepared low-noise macroscopic state, containing up to 2000 photons per mode, is not among the states achievable through nonlinear optical processes. The proposed technique substantially improves the usefulness of twin beams for quantum technologies.

Information and noise in quantum measurement  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Even though measurement results obtained in the real world are generally both noisy and continuous, quantum measurement theory tends to emphasize the ideal limit of perfect precision and quantized measurement results. In this article, a more general concept of noisy measurements is applied to investigate the role of quantum noise in the measurement process. In particular, it is shown that the effects of quantum noise can be separated from the effects of information obtained in the measurement. However, quantum noise is required to “cover up” negative probabilities arising as the quantum limit is approached. These negative probabilities represent fundamental quantum-mechanical correlations between the measured variable and the variables affected by quantum noise.

When the input energy tends to infinitive, it is verified by perturbation theory that the coherent information reaches its maximum at the product of identical thermal state input. The quantum capacity is obtained for lower noise channel and it is equal the one shot capacity.

Prediction of noise emissions from industrial flares  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In many industries where combustible waste gases are obtained flares are used to burn these gases in a controlled manner. Among other environmental aspects the noise emissions associated with flaring are becoming increasingly important in many countries as population density goes up and residential and industrial areas move closer together. Installing noise control equipment on flares is almost impossible while they are in service since flares are typically a safety related plant component that can only be turned off after the connected plant has been shut down. Accordingly in order to plan appropriate noise controlmeasures in time and to avoid unnecessary costs predicting the noise emissions of flares as early in the design process as possible is crucial. This requires knowledge of the relevant individual noise sources associated to the flare system and the ability to calculate their respective contribution ? in the operating condition in question ? to the overall noise emission based on the data available in the planning stage. The present paper summarizes these sources and outlines some of the individual effects and parameters having an influence on the acoustical characteristics of flares.

Excess optical quantum noise in atomic sensors  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Enhanced nonlinear optical response of a coherent atomic medium is the basis for many atomic sensors, and their performance is ultimately limited by the quantum fluctuations of the optical read-out. Here we demonstrate that off-resonant interactions can significantly modify the quantum noise of the optical field, even when their effect on the mean signal is negligible. We illustrate this concept by using an atomic magnetometer based on the nonlinear Faraday effect: the rotation of the light polarization is mainly determined by the resonant light-induced spin alignment, which alone does not change the photon statistics of the optical probe. Yet, we found that the minimum noise of output polarization rotation measurements is above the expected shot noise limit. This excess quantum noise is due to off-resonant coupling and grows with atomic density. We also show that the detection scheme can be modified to reduce the measured quantum noise (even below the shot-noise limit) but only at the expense of the reduced rotational sensitivity. These results show the existence of previously unnoticed factors in fundamental limitations in atomic magnetometry and could have impacts in many other atom-light based precision measurements.

Concentrations of indoor pollutants database: User's manual  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This manual describes the computer-based database on indoor air pollutants. This comprehensive database alloys helps utility personnel perform rapid searches on literature related to indoor air pollutants. Besides general information, it provides guidance for finding specific information on concentrations of indoor air pollutants. The manual includes information on installing and using the database as well as a tutorial to assist the user in becoming familiar with the procedures involved in doing bibliographic and summary section searches. The manual demonstrates how to search for information by going through a series of questions that provide search parameters such as pollutants type, year, building type, keywords (from a specific list), country, geographic region, author's last name, and title. As more and more parameters are specified, the list of references found in the data search becomes smaller and more specific to the user's needs. Appendixes list types of information that can be input into the database when making a request. The CIP database allows individual utilities to obtain information on indoor air quality based on building types and other factors in their own service territory. This information is useful for utilities with concerns about indoor air quality and the control of indoor air pollutants. The CIP database itself is distributed by the Electric Power Software Center and runs on IBM PC-compatible computers.

Noise impact assessment by utilizing noise map and GIS: A case study in the city of Chungju, Republic of Korea  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this study, a scheme to develop a noise map and noise impact assessment method using GIS has been suggested. After developing a road-traffic noise map for the city of Chungju, Republic of Korea, noise impact assessment was performed through analyzing the map. A 3-dimensional terrain model was generated using digital maps and building models were prepared using the information from draft and digital maps. To develop a noise evaluation model, a noise-source map for each road was generated. The noise levels at 25 locations close to roads were measured and compared with the expected noise levels to verify the developed noise map. An excess noise map was generated by comparing the road-traffic noise map with a noise-standard map. Using the excess noise map, the areas exceeding environmental noise standards were effectively evaluated through a GIS space analysis. The 3-dimensional facade noise map was generated to calculate the number of people exposed to a certain noise level.

Environmental noise impact of modern wind farms  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Electric power production from wind turbines has increased substantially during the past few years due to the growing emphasis on renewable energy sources and more efficient wind turbine technology. Although modern turbines are significantly quieter than early models wind farms that are proposed near residential areas generate concern about potential noise issues. The present study consists of two parts: (1) the measurement of sound levels within a 2?km radius of the existing Nine Canyons wind farm near Richland WA and (2) the application of an outdoor sound propagation model to predict noise levels both at Nine Canyons and in the vicinity of a proposed farm near Ellensburg WA. At most locations within the Nine Canyon site recorded sound levels were less than predicted levels with the exception of some downwind sites that were lower in elevation than the source. Noise levels were greatest downwind from the turbines but never exceeded 50 dBA beyond 500 m from the nearest turbine. In many cases wind noise at the microphone exceeded noise levels from the turbines.

The room noise criteria (RNC) metric.  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The recent ANSI S12.2:2008 room noise criteria contains both a survey and an engineering method to specify room noise criteria. The methods use A?weighting and extended NC respectively. A new metric titled like the standard room noise criteria (RNC) is included as a diagnostic tool. It is based on human hearing and more correctly assesses low?frequency sound. In particular it is sensitive to the standard deviation to random noise and/or low?frequency surging in the 16–125 Hz octave bands such as the sound that can be produced by HVAC systems or other devices. It provides a bridge between the NC and RC criteria by correctly predicting the need for the less stringent (at low frequencies) NC criteria when the HVAC system is well designed (no surging moderate standard deviation) and also correctly predicting the more stringent (at low frequencies) RC criteria when the HVAC system noise has a large standard deviation and/or surging.

Flux noise in high-temperature superconductors  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Spontaneously created vortex-antivortex pairs are the predominant source of flux noise in high-temperature superconductors. In principle, flux noise measurements allow to check theoretical predictions for both the distribution of vortex-pair sizes and for the vortex diffusivity. In this paper the flux-noise power spectrum is calculated for the highly anisotropic high-temperature superconductor Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+?, both for bulk crystals and for ultrathin films. The spectrum is basically given by the Fourier transform of the temporal magnetic-field correlation function. We start from a Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless-type theory and incorporate vortex diffusion, intrapair vortex interaction, and annihilation of pairs by means of a Fokker-Planck equation to determine the noise spectrum below and above the superconducting transition temperature. We find white noise at low frequencies ? and a spectrum proportional to 1/?3/2 at high frequencies. The crossover frequency between these regimes strongly depends on temperature. The results are compared with earlier results of computer simulations.

Pollution Prevention Opportunity Assessment for Landscape Waste  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

DOE orders mandate the development of a waste minimization program. The program`s goals are to: reduce volumes of wastes and toxicity; implement a system of tracking and reporting improvements; and devise a method for performing tasks. To satisfy the requirements of this program, Sandia conducts pollution prevention opportunity assessments (PPOAs) to identify waste-generating processes. The information collected from a PPOA then is used to identify waste minimization opportunities. This pollution prevention opportunity assessment was conducted using Sandia`s new methodology for prioritizing, evaluating and managing site-wide waste streams. This new methodology and the list of priority waste streams are described in the wastes revision of the Pollution Prevention Opportunity Assessment Plant. This PPOA addresses landscape waste minimization, partially in response to recent legislation and regulations.

VALMET-A valley air pollution model  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Following a thorough analysis of meteorological data obtained from deep valleys of western Colorado, a modular air-pollution model has been developed to simulate the transport and diffusion of pollutants released from an elevated point source in a well-defined mountain valley during the nighttime and morning transition periods. This initial version of the model, named VALMET, operates on a valley cross section at an arbitrary distance down-valley from a continuous point source. The model has been constructed to include parameterizations of the major physical processes that act to disperse pollution during these time periods. The model has not been fully evaluated. Further testing, evaluations, and development of the model are needed. Priorities for further development and testing are provided.

Genetic noise control via protein oligomerization  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Gene expression in a cell entails random reaction events occurring over disparate time scales. Thus, molecular noise that often results in phenotypic and population-dynamic consequences sets a fundamental limit to biochemical signaling. While there have been numerous studies correlating the architecture of cellular reaction networks with noise tolerance, only a limited effort has been made to understand the dynamical role of protein-protein associations. We have developed a fully stochastic model for the positive feedback control of a single gene, as well as a pair of genes (toggle switch), integrating quantitative results from previous in vivo and in vitro studies. In particular, we explicitly account for the fast protein binding-unbinding kinetics, RNA polymerases, and the promoter/operator sequences of DNA. We find that the overall noise-level is reduced and the frequency content of the noise is dramatically shifted to the physiologically irrelevant high-frequency regime in the presence of protein dimerization. This is independent of the choice of monomer or dimer as transcription factor and persists throughout the multiple model topologies considered. For the toggle switch, we additionally find that the presence of a protein dimer, either homodimer or heterodimer, may significantly reduce its intrinsic switching rate. Hence, the dimer promotes the robust function of bistable switches by preventing the uninduced (induced) state from randomly being induced (uninduced). The specific binding between regulatory proteins provides a buffer that may prevent the propagation of fluctuations in genetic activity. The capacity of the buffer is a non-monotonic function of association-dissociation rates. Since the protein oligomerization per se does not require extra protein components to be expressed, it provides a basis for the rapid control of intrinsic or extrinsic noise. The stabilization of phenotypically important toggle switches, and nested positive feedback loops in general, is of direct implications to organism fitness. Finally, noise control through oligomerization suggests avenues for the design of robust synthetic gene circuits for engineering purposes.

Amplitude modulation of wind turbine noise  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Due to swish and thump amplitude modulation, the noise of wind turbines cause more annoyance than other environmental noise of the same average level. The wind shear accounts for the thump modulation (van den Berg effect). Making use of the wind speed measurements at the hub height, as well as at the top and the bottom of the rotor disc (Fig.1), the non-standard wind profile is applied. It causes variations in the A-weighted sound pressure level, LpA. The difference between the maximum and minimum of LpA characterizes thump modulation (Fig.2).

This is a consequence of recent results of Kappeler and Topalov establishing the well-posedness of the equation on appropriate negative Sobolev spaces, together with a result of Cambronero and McKean that white noise is the image under the Miura transform (Ricatti map) of the (weighted) Gibbs measure for the modified KdV equation, proven to be invariant for that equation by Bourgain.

Infrasonic ambient ocean noise: Northeast Pacific Ocean  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Measurements of ocean ambient noise were made at three widely separated deep?water bottom locations in the N. E. Pacific at eight frequencies in the range from 2.5–20.0 Hz for 40 consecutive days. Concurrent data on wind speed and wave height were collected. Analysis indicates that the spectrum level of infrasonicnoise is linearly related to the log of the wind speed above a threshold level. There is evidence that the noise can be directly associated with the wind rather than through the surface waves it produces. [Work supported by ONR.

Environmental noise of a nuclear power plant and its substations  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In order to fulfill government requirements for construction of a nuclear power plant an environmental noiseimpact as?assessment has been conducted. Ambient noise was measured continuously for 24 hour periods at the plant and substation sites and in the vicinity. Week long surveys were performed in each of the four seasons. A statistical interpretation of construction noise accounts for variability of construction equipment usage its location and range of sound pressure levels. Histograms of construction noise and measured ambient noise are added to obtain the statistical representation of the predicted construction ambient noise. Operational noise of the plant is similarly predicted. The predicted noise contours of both operation and construction noise are formulated on the topographic maps. Meteorologic and topographic effects on the noise data are discussed.

Pollution by cereal waste burning in Spain  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this paper, the amount of cereal waste burned in Spain, which represents the most important source of biomass burning in this country, is estimated. During the period between 1980 and 1998, an average mass of 8 Tg of cereal waste was burned annually, with remaining 1 Tg of ash on the cereal fields after combustion. By using emission factors previously calculated by Ortiz de Zárate et al. [Ortiz de Zárate, I., Ezcurra, A., Lacaux, J.P., Van Dihn, P., 2000. Emission factor estimates of cereal waste burning in Spain. Atmos. Environ. 34, 3183–3193.], it is deduced that pollutant emissions linked to cereal waste-burning process reach values of 11 Tg CO2, 80 Gg of TPM and 23 Gg of \\{NOx\\} year?1 during the cereal-burning period. These emissions represent 46% of total CO2 and 23% \\{NOx\\} emitted in Spain during the burning period that lasts 1 month after harvesting. Therefore, the relative importance of cereal waste burning as pollutant source in Spain almost during fire period becomes evident. Finally, our study allows to deduce that the production of 1 kg of cereal crop implies that 410 g of carbon and 3.3 g of nitrogen are going to be introduced into the atmosphere by this pollutant process. We estimate a total gaseous emission of 3.3 Tg of C and 25 Gg N as different pollutants by cereal waste burning.

A simulation model for urban traffic noise  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Urban traffic noise is studied by a simulation model whose main features are the following: effects of traffic lights speed limit possibility of vehicles overtaking and driving styles. In the model there is a basic assumption about driver’s behavior (‘‘follow the leader’’) considering the case of straight and level road with two lanes for every carriageway and two traffic lights. Three driving styles are considered: A (‘‘quiet driver’’): change of gear at 60% of engine speed corresponding to maximum torque B (‘‘normal driver’’): at 80% C (‘‘fast driver’’): at 100%. The behavior rules provide for: keeping of safety distance overtaking if there are vehicles at different speeds deceleration and stop at traffic lights with red synchronization of two traffic lights if requested. From the kinematic side the model was validated by comparison with acceleration distribution of a real vehicle’s flow while the acoustic one was by the comparison with noise levels measured along urban streets. The simulation model lets one take into account the following factors concerning the traffic noise emission: main noise sources of vehicle (tires engine intake and exhaust system) traffic flow and maximum speed allowed traffic mix as regards different driving styles.

Parallel barrier effectiveness, Dulles noise barrier project.  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In an effort to minimize the cost and maximize the effectiveness of highway noise barriers the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and a National Pooled Fund Panel (made up of 14 states) funded a field study program on an experimental highway noise barrier. A test barrier was constructed in 1984 at a site at Dulles International Airport in Chantilly Virginia. The study conducted from May 1989 to August 1989 by the U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Special Programs Administration Transportation System Center (U.S. DOT/RSPA/TSC) focused on the use of absorptive treatment and tilting as a means of improving the insertion loss of two parallel highway noise barriers. Measurements were conducted with both controlled moving point sources (trucks) and an artificial fixed?point source (speaker system). Results show (1) the addition of absorptive treatment to the roadside face of two vertical parallel highway noise barriers eliminated multiple reflections and was found to improve the insertion loss (2–6 dB); (2) tilting proved to be an effective alternative to absorptive treatment in eliminating the multiple reflections and subsequent degradation in performance of two vertical reflective barriers; and (3) use of an artificial fixed?point source is not a viable test of barrier effectiveness.

Characterization of classroom noise and noise control techniques and their effect on speech comprehension while learning.  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Classrooms have been shown to be prone to elevated occupied noise levels that reduce speech comprehension and inhibit learning. This presentation discusses a current study that includes three parts: (1) the characterization of masking invoked by noise commonly found in today’s classrooms (2) the formulation of a metric that intends to associate masking risk to noise features and (3) the attempt to quantify any increase in speech comprehension resulting from interior acoustic designs that aspire to reduce noise in occupied classrooms. Calibrated recordings made during classroom activities in 9 schools are post processed to allow noisecharacteristics to be rated based on attributes related to the noise source or type duration rate of recurrence spectra level envelope and peak energy. Binaural and monaural recordings are compared. Speech to noise ratios are statistically weighted over various time frames and activities in an attempt to refine reproducibility among different activities. All recordings were made in occupied rooms both before and after the various treatments were integrated. The results suggest that there are misconceptions in the literature in terms of today’s classroom design trends and a few novel principles emerged as being highly effective.

Comparison of predicted and measured noise levels for refinery units  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Predicting noise levels from new refinery units is a vital part of environmental assessment and designing units to meet noise limits. The accuracy of those noise predictions is a very important concern. The simplest way to assess the accuracy of predictions is to compare predicted and measured noise levels. This is usually difficult because measured levels are strongly affected by noise from adjacent units and by atmospheric effects on sound propagation. Further actual noise levels of significant sources often deviate from expected levels used in the noise prediction model. Thus to meaningfully compare predicted and measured levels the actual noise source levels for the major sources atmospheric conditions and noise levels from adjacent units must all be accounted for. Predicted and measured levels are compared for two large refinery units. Measurements were made at locations where noise from adjacent units has little effect and close enough so that atmospheric conditions have little impact on the measured levels. Measured operational noise levels of major sources were used to update the noise prediction model. Accuracy of the predictions is evaluated.

Chapter 30 - Air Pollution Control Technologies  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter describes numerous air pollution control devices and approaches to remove and treat particulate-phase and vapor-phase contaminants from a gas stream. Beginning with the removal of particulate matter, the various forces are described; i.e. gravity, buoyancy, drag, centrifugal and electrostatic forces, as well as molecular diffusion, and phoresis (thermal and diffusion-based). For removing gas-phase compounds, absorption and adsorption processes are described in detail. The physical and chemical mechanisms at work in gravitational settling, inertial impaction, electrostatic precipitation, filtration, and sorption are discussed in detail. Example calculations are provided, as well as expected problems and considerations needed prior to selecting a technology for a given pollutant stream.

Method of degrading pollutants in soil  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

Disclosed are a method and system for enhancing the motility of microorganisms. This is accomplished by placing an effective amount of chlorinated hydrocarbons, preferably chlorinated alkenes, and most preferably trichloroethylene in spaced relation to the microbes so that the surprisingly strong, monomodal, chemotactic response of the chlorinated hydrocarbon on subsurface microbes can draw the microbes away from or towards and into a substance, as desired. In remediation of groundwater pollution, for example, TCE can be injected into the plume to increase the population of microbes at the plume whereby the plume can be more quickly degraded. A TCE-degrading microbe, such as Welchia alkenophilia, can be used to degrade the TCE following the degradation of the original pollutant. 5 figures.

Quantum-noise quenching in quantum tweezers  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The efficiency of extracting single atoms or molecules from an ultracold bosonic reservoir is theoretically investigated for a protocol based on lasers, coupling the hyperfine state in which the atoms form a condensate to another stable state, in which the atom experiences a tight potential in the regime of collisional blockade, the quantum tweezers. The transfer efficiency into the single-atom ground state of the tight trap is fundamentally limited by the collective modes of the condensate, which are thermally and dynamically excited and constitute the ultimate noise sources. This quantum noise can be quenched for sufficiently long laser pulses, thereby achieving high efficiencies, and showing that this protocol can be applied for quantum information processing based on tweezer traps for neutral atoms.

Influence of refraction on wind turbine noise  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

A semi-empirical method is applied to calculate the time-average sound level of wind turbine noise generation and propagation. Both are affected by wind shear refraction. Under upwind conditions the partially ensonified zone separates the fully ensonified zone (close to the turbine) and the shadow zone (far away from the turbine). Refraction is described in terms of the wind speed linear profile fitted to the power law profile. The rotating blades are treated as a two-dimensional circular source in the vertical plane. Inside the partially ensonified zone the effective A-weighted sound power decreases to zero when the receiver moves from the turbine toward the shadow zone. The presented results would be useful in practical applications to give a quick estimate of the effect of refraction on wind turbine noise.

Levels and Spectra of Transportation Vehicle Noise  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In the years immediately preceding the war an informal program of the study of traffic transportationvehicle and industrial noise was undertaken in the Chicago area. In the recent past another but much more exhaustive program has been initiated and further and more detailed work has now been done. One phase of the work has been a study of the noise within the various types of vehicles generally employed in transportation. These include older and newer type trolley cars and trolley buses elevated lines and subway cars suburban electric and steam trains and passenger automobiles.Measurements were made in these vehicles not only of total sound level but of components in octave bands in the audible frequency range. The work has therefore permitted a comparison of the acoustic spectra in these vehicles and curves to show these characteristic differences will be shown.

Interaction of watershed scale and pollutant transport pathways on pollutant concentrations in rivers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Extensive studies of pollutant concentrations during both storm runoff events and non-storm periods have been underway in Ohio tributaries to lake Erie since 1974. More than 60,000 samples have been collected using automatic samplers located at US Geological Survey stream gauging stations. Drainage areas at the collection stations range from 11 km{sup 2} to 16,400 km{sup 2}. Samples have been analyzed for suspended sediments, various particulate pollutants attached to suspended sediments, current generation herbicides, nitrates, and chlorides. In general, for pollutants derived from nonpoint sources, peak concentrations decrease as watershed size increases. However, the duration of exposures to intermediate concentrations increases with increasing watershed size. these effects are most evident for suspended solids and associated particulate contaminants. For pollutants derived primarily from surface runoff but not attached to suspended sediments, the effects of watershed size on peak concentrations are evident, but not as pronounced as for suspended sediments. For compounds such as nitrates, which enter streams largely through interflow or tile drainage, scale effects are least evident. These scale effects are most likely attributable to dilution accompanying storm water routing through drainage networks. Longitudinal dispersion may also affect concentration patterns. These scale effects systematically affect exposure patterns in different positions in drainage networks and must be considered in designing sampling programs to assess impacts of nonpoint pollution on contaminant concentration patterns and loadings.

Idaho National Laboratory Site Pollution Prevention Plan  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

It is the policy of the Department of Energy (DOE) that pollution prevention and sustainable environmental stewardship will be integrated into DOE operations as a good business practice to reduce environmental hazards, protect environmental resources, avoid pollution control costs, and improve operational efficiency and mission sustainability. In furtherance of this policy, DOE established five strategic, performance-based Pollution Prevention (P2) and Sustainable Environmental Stewardship goals and included them as an attachment to DOE O 450.1, Environmental Protection Program. These goals and accompanying strategies are to be implemented by DOE sites through the integration of Pollution Prevention into each site's Environmental Management System (EMS). This document presents a P2 and Sustainability Program and corresponding plan pursuant to DOE Order 450.1 and DOE O 435.1, Radioactive Waste Management. This plan is also required by the state of Idaho, pursuant to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) partial permit. The objective of this document is to describe the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) Site P2 and Sustainability Program. The purpose of the program is to decrease the environmental footprint of the INL Site while providing enhanced support of its mission. The success of the program is dependent on financial and management support. The signatures on the previous page indicate INL, ICP, and AMWTP Contractor management support and dedication to the program. P2 requirements have been integrated into working procedures to ensure an effective EMS as part of an Integrated Safety Management System (ISMS). This plan focuses on programmatic functions which include environmentally preferable procurement, sustainable design, P2 and Sustainability awareness, waste generation and reduction, source reduction and recycling, energy management, and pollution prevention opportunity assessments. The INL Site P2 and Sustainability Program is administratively managed by the INL Site P2 Coordinator. Development and maintenance of this overall INL Site plan is ultimately the responsibility of DOE-ID. This plan is applicable to all INL Site contractors except those at the Naval Reactors Facility.

In FY 1988, the Federal Government expended an estimated $107.2 million for marine pollution research and monitoring activities. These activities were funded by 11 Federal departments and independent agencies and included studies pertaining to pollution in coastal areas, estuaries, open oceans, and the Great Lakes. The Plan represents the fourth such document in the continuing interagency planning process called for in the National Ocean Pollution Planning Act of 1978 (P.L. 95-273), as amended. As required by the Act, a comprehensive 5-year Plan for the overall Federal effort is prepared and updated every 3 years. The Plan identifies national marine pollution needs and problems, describes the existing Federal capability for conducting marine pollution research and monitoring.

Air pollution prevention at the Hanford Site: Status and recommendations  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

With the introduction of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 and other air and pollution prevention regulations, there has been increased focus on both pollution prevention and air emissions at US DOE sites. The Pollution Prevention (P2) Group of WHC reviewed the status of air pollution prevention with the goal of making recommendations on how to address air emissions at Hanford through pollution prevention. Using the air emissions inventory from Hanford`s Title V permit, the P2 Group was able to identify major and significant air sources. By reviewing the literature and benchmarking two other DOE Sites, two major activities were recommended to reduce air pollution and reduce costs at the Hanford Site. First, a pollution prevention opportunity assessment (P2OA) should be conducted on the significant painting sources in the Maintenance group and credit should be taken for reducing the burning of tumbleweeds, another significant source of air pollution. Since they are significant sources, reducing these emissions will reduce air emission fees, as well as have the potential to reduce material and labor costs, and increase worker safety. Second, a P2OA should be conducted on alternatives to the three coal-fired powerhouses (steam plants) on-site, including a significant costs analysis of alternatives. This analysis could be of significant value to other DOE sites. Overall, these two activities would reduce pollution, ease regulatory requirements and fees, save money, and help Hanford take a leadership role in air pollution prevention.

Analysis of air pollution and greenhouse gases  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The current objective of the project Analysis of Air Pollution and Greenhouse Gases'' is to develop a study of emissions and emission sources that could easily be linked to models of economic activity. Initial studies were conducted to evaluate data currently available linking activity rates and emissions estimates. The emissions inventory developed for the National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program (NAPAP) presents one of the most comprehensive data sets, and was chosen for our initial studies, which are described in this report. Over 99% of the SO{sub 2} emissions, 98% of the NO{sub x} emission and 57% of the VOC emissions from area sources are related to fuel combustion. The majority of emission from these sources are generated by the transportation sector. Activity rates for area sources are not archived with the NAPAP inventory; alternative derivations of these data will be part of the future activities of this project. The availability and completeness of the fuel heat content data in the NAPAP inventory were also studied. Approximately 10% of the SO{sub 2} emissions, 13% of the NO{sub x} emissions and 46% of the VOC emissions are generated by sources with unavailable data for fuel heat content. Initial estimates of pollutant emission rate per unit fuel heat content. Initial estimates of pollutant emission rate per unit fuel heat content were generated. Future studies for this project include the derivation of activity rates for area sources, improved explanations for the default fuel parameters defined in the NAPAP inventory and the development of links to data bases of economic activity.

Noise control versus shock and vibration engineering  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Noise control and shock and vibration engineering have many fundamentals in common and many analogous practical constraints. Yet in many respects they tend to be opposite in methodology philosophy and past history. The present discussion is an attempt to present the point of view of the practicing engineer in either field who has some perspective on the historical origins of his art. It focuses on aspects that epitomize the practical objectives of such engineers plus any administrators lawyers etc. who may also be involved in team efforts. For noise control the aspects chosen are establishment of regulations monitoring and design or other actions intended to bring about compliance with regulations. For shock and vibration engineering they are establishment of environmental specifications to ensure reliability environmental testing in accordance with these and design or redesign to bring about compliance with test requirements and also (we hope) to bring about reliability without severe penalties in weight schedule or cost. This is not to say that these aspects in their barest sense represent all the technology or methodology that is pertinent or even that these limited aspects will be treated comprehensively. It is almost self?evident that the Acoustical Society of America should and does maintain beneficial relationship with medical psychological mechanical engineering and other societies that report their particular developing lore of fundamentals and some practical information from their particular viewpoint. The Acoustical Society is an important part of this spectrum by virtue of its interdisciplinary coverage extending through materials dynamics sound instrumentation and electronics to speech and hearing. But it is also worthwhile for the ASA by whatever means are available to sample the flavor of various disciplines as unified and value?weighted in accordance with typical practical objectives. For this reason the developing beneficial relationships with the Institute of Noise Control (INCE) and the Shock and Vibration Information Center (SVIC) will become increasingly important.

Experimental noise filtering by quantum control  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Instabilities due to extrinsic interference are routinely faced in systems engineering, and a common solution is to rely on a broad class of $\\textit{filtering}$ techniques in order to afford stability to intrinsically unstable systems. For instance, electronic systems are frequently designed to incorporate electrical filters composed of, $\\textit{e.g.}$ RLC components, in order to suppress the effects of out-of-band fluctuations that interfere with desired performance. Quantum coherent systems are now moving to a level of complexity where challenges associated with realistic time-dependent noise are coming to the fore. Unfortunately, standard control solutions involving feedback are generally impossible due to the strictures of quantum mechanics, and existing error-suppressing gate constructions generally rely on unphysical bang-bang controls or quasi-static error models that do not reflect realistic laboratory environments. In this work we use the theory of quantum control engineering and experiments with trapped $^{171}$Yb$^{+}$ ions to demonstrate the construction of novel $\\textit{noise filters}$ which are specifically designed to mitigate the effect of realistic time-dependent fluctuations on qubits \\emph{during useful operations}. Starting with desired filter characteristics and the Walsh basis functions, we use a combination of analytic design rules and numeric search to construct time-domain noise filters tailored to a desired state transformation. Our results validate the generalized filter-transfer function framework for arbitrary quantum control operations, and demonstrate that it can be leveraged as an effective and efficient tool for developing novel robust control protocols.

Characterization of ambient air pollution for stochastic health models  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This research is an analysis of various measures of ambient air pollution useful in cross-sectional epidemiological investigations and rick assessments. The Chestnut Ridge area health effects investigation, which includes a cross-sectional study of respiratory symptoms in young children, is used as a case study. Four large coal-fired electric generating power plants are the dominant pollution sources in this area of western Pennsylvania. The air pollution data base includes four years of sulfur dioxide and five years of total suspended particulate concentrations at seventeen monitors. Some 70 different characterizations of pollution are constructed and tested. These include pollutant concentrations at various percentiles and averaging times, exceedence measures which show the amount of time a specified threshold concentration is exceeded, and several dosage measures which transform non-linear dose-response relationships onto pollutant concentrations.

Biocarrier composition for and method of degrading pollutants  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

The present invention relates to biocarrier compositions that attract and bond pollutant-degrading antigens that will degrade the pollutants. Biocarriers are known generally as a variety of inert or semi-inert compounds or structures having the ability to sequester (attract), hold and biomagnify (enhance) specific microorganisms within their structure. Glass or polystyrene beads are the most well known biocarriers. The biocarrier, which is preferably in the form of glass microspheres, is coated with an antibody or group of antibodies that attract and react specifically with certain pollutant-degrading antigens. The antibody, once bonded to the biocarrier, is used by the composition to attract and bond those pollutant-degrading antigens. Each antibody is specific for an antigen that is specific for a given pollutant. The resulting composition is subsequently exposed to an environment contaminated with pollutants for degradation. In the preferred use, the degrading composition is formed and then injected directly into or near a plume or source of contamination.

Directional noise and correlation of signal and noise variability in the ASIAEX South China Sea Experiment  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

As part of the 2001 ASIAEX South China Sea experiment known acoustic signals and noise were recorded for 16 days with co?located horizontal and vertical receiving arrays in 120?m depth water at the edge of the continental shelf. The location was south of China and southwest of Taiwan. Vertical and horizontal directionality of both signals and noise can be estimated using the two arrays. Directionality can be linked to vertical mode bandwidth. Furthermore because of mode stripping effects it can indicate the amount of mode coupling in the vicinity of the receiver. Previously arrival time and total energy of the signals have been shown to respond to the strong nonlinear internal waves and internal tides of the area. Here we investigate the response of noiseenergy and directionality to the waves and compare with the response of signal energy and directionality. The results can be compared to the Shelfbreak PRIMER experiment in the Mid?Atlantic Bight where signal and noise parameters recorded with a VLA were correlated. Correlation of signal and noise violates assumptions used in many signal processing algorithms.

Subcritical source-driven noise measurements are simultaneous Rossia and randomly pulsed neutron measurements that provide measured quantities that can be related to the subcritical neutron multiplication factor. In fact, subcritical source-driven noise measurements should be performed in lieu of Rossia measurements because of the additional information that is obtained from noise measurements such as the spectral ratio and the coherence functions. The basic understanding of source-driven noise analysis measurements can be developed from a point reactor kinetics model to demonstrate how the measured quantities relate to the subcritical neutron multiplication factor.

Beneficial role of noise in artificial neural networks  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We demonstrate enhancement of neural networks efficacy to recognize frequency encoded signals and/or to categorize spatial patterns of neural activity as a result of noise addition. For temporal information recovery, noise directly added to the receiving neurons allow instantaneous improvement of signal-to-noise ratio [Monterola and Saloma, Phys. Rev. Lett. 2002]. For spatial patterns however, recurrence is necessary to extend and homogenize the operating range of a feed-forward neural network [Monterola and Zapotocky, Phys. Rev. E 2005]. Finally, using the size of the basin of attraction of the networks learned patterns (dynamical fixed points), a procedure for estimating the optimal noise is demonstrated.

Mixed noise removal by weighted low rank model  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Mixed noise removal has been a challenging task due to the complex noise distribution. One representative type of mixed noise is the additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) coupled with impulse noise (IN). Most mixed noise removal methods first detect and restore impulse pixels using median-type filters, and then perform AWGN removal. Such mixed noise removal methods, however, are less effective in preserving image structures, and tend to over-smooth image details. In this paper, we present a novel mixed noise removal method by proposing a weighted low rank model (WLRM). By grouping image nonlocal similar patches as a matrix, we reconstruct the clean image by finding the weighted low rank approximation or representation of the matrix. IN can be well suppressed by the adaptive weight setting, while the image global structure and local edges can be well preserved via the low rank model fitting. The weight setting and low rank model fitting are jointly optimized in WLRM. Our experiments validate that WLRM leads to very promising mixed noise removal results in terms of both quantitative measure and visual perception.

Road traffic noise mapping in Guangzhou using GIS and GPS  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The primary objective of this study is to develop day and night road traffic noise maps for Guangzhou using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS). First, as speed-density relation is used to estimate the traffic volume from GPS data collected from floating cars. Meanwhile, the attributes of the roads and buildings are automatically exported from GIS. Second, a single vehicle noise emission model is combined with a noise propagation model to formulate a regional traffic noise calculation model that accounts for the traffic noise attenuation in an urban area. The algorithm is optimized by intelligently dividing the computational grids, filtering the traffic noise sources automatically and performing a quick index of the estimation objects. Finally, the day and night road traffic noise levels in Guangzhou are estimated to create two traffic noise maps. The accuracy of the developed algorithm is validated by conducting a traffic noise monitoring experiment in several districts of Guangzhou with different road types. The results show that the average error between the estimated and measured values is below 2.0 dB.

The law against fetal protection policies for reproductive health hazards in the workplace: Implications for noise and vibration exposure  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Is there a legal basis for employing special risk assessments or other preventive strategies to protect fetal health when pregnant women are exposed to potentially dangerous levels of occupational noise and vibration that may cause adverse effects on pregnancy outcome or cause hearing loss? A fetus in utero is highly susceptible to risks from toxic or hazardous agents in the workplace. Yet complex litigation before the U.S. Supreme Court in IUAW v Johnson Controls held that fetal protection policies are illegal. The Court held that despite the risks to female employees of ‘‘childbearing age and capability’’ the law prohibits excluding women from well?paying jobs that have high lead exposure. While articulating women’s equal opportunity to work in high?risk occupations during or before pregnancy the Court did not require risk assessment or state guidelines regarding possible maternal or fetal exposures to workplace harms. This paper will explore legal underpinnings of fetal protection policies under Title VII discrimination law the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 and the related precedents concerning fetal protection to consider for the first time the implications of these laws in workplaces where pregnant women are exposed to hazardous levels of noise and vibration. ?

Fossil Biodiversity: Red Noise Plus Signal  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We have examined the Fourier power spectrum as well as the Hurst exponent of extinction, origination, and total biodiversity in the marine fossil record, using a recently improved geologic timescale. We find all of them strongly inconsistent with past claims of self-similarity as well as inconsistent with random walk behavior. Instead, they are dominated by low-frequency power, with approximate f^-2 power over one decade in frequency. The spectrum turns over at about 10^8 y, lending plausibility to connections with galactic dynamics. Even in the background of this low-frequency dominance, a previously noted 62 My biodiversity cycle stands out with better than 99% confidence above the noise level, accounting for about 35% of the total variance in the fossil biodiversity record.

Quantum-noise quenching in atomic tweezers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The efficiency of extracting single atoms or molecules from an ultracold bosonic reservoir is theoretically investigated for a protocol based on lasers, coupling the hyperfine state in which the atoms form a condensate to another stable state, in which the atom experiences a tight potential in the regime of collisional blockade, the quantum tweezers. The transfer efficiency into the single-atom ground state of the tight trap is fundamentally limited by the collective modes of the condensate, which are thermally and dynamically excited. The noise due to these excitations can be quenched for sufficiently long laser pulses, thereby achieving high efficiencies. These results show that this protocol can be applied to initializing a quantum register based on tweezer traps for neutral atoms.

Investigation of noise sources in SQUID electronics  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The performance of SQUID-based electronics outside a laboratory-controlled environment may be degraded from that found in laboratory operation. Investigations on superconducting tubes, wires, and sheets have been conducted to identify contributions to such noise. Results have been obtained for bulk and thin film samples utilizing both the conventional low temperature materials, as well as the new high temperature oxide materials. Experiments have been conducted to quantify flux redistribution and flux motion in superconducting samples subjected to temperature changes, temperature gradients, and magnetic field gradients. These investigations have been conducted at magnetic fields typical of many SQUID applications, with field intensities much smaller than the critical values H/sub cl/. Penetration depth effects, flux pinning effects, and flux motion effects have been observed. The various types of experiments conducted along with specific results are described.

On the effects of common pollutants on the corrosion of copper-nickel alloys in sulfide polluted seawater  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Various pollutants are often introduced in seawater by wet and dry deposition and by improper dumping of municipal wastewater. These pollutants often affect the corrosivity of seawater on copper-based alloys which might be thought to be resistant in this environment and do not receive sufficient research efforts. In the present investigation the effect was determined of some common pollutants such as urea, sodium sulfite, sodium nitrate, sodium phosphate, copper sulfate, lead acetate, ammonium sulfate, and ammonium chloride at a level of 10 ppm and of chlorine at 1 ppm concentration on the corrosion characteristics of the 90Cu-10Ni and the 70Cu-30Ni alloys in seawater, both in the presence and in the absence of 10 ppm sulfide. Both small amplitude cyclic voltammetry (SACV) and the Tafel extrapolation technique were employed as test procedures. All pollutants under investigation have led to an increase in corrosion rate and their effect was more pronounced when sulfide was also present. The effects of pollutants were more intense on 90Cu-10Ni as compared to 70Cu-30Ni alloys. In unpolluted seawater, the worst pollutant for 90Cu-10Ni alloy is sulfide followed by urea and chlorine while for the 70Cu-30Ni alloy, the worst pollutant was ammonium chloride followed by sulfide and sodium phosphate. In unpolluted seawater, the introduction of pollutants led to a corrosion reaction which was under cathodic control except for sulfide where the reaction was under anodic control and resulted in a sharp negative shift in the corrosion potential. In sulfide polluted seawater, the worst pollutant for 90Cu-10Ni alloy was ammonium sulfate followed by urea while for 70Cu-30Ni alloy, the worst pollutant was urea followed by ammonium chloride, ammonium sulfate, and sulfite ions.

Issues in heat recovery steam generator system noise  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) is a fundamental component of all combustion turbine?based combined cycle power plants. While it’s primary purpose is to convert exhaust gas heat to steam an important secondary function is to reduce noise emissions from the combustion turbine exhaust. This source at about 155 dB (overall) re: 1 pW for a 100?MW turbine is the highest noise emission source in any combustion turbine plant. Therefore the residual exhaust noise emissions leaving the HRSG walls and stack exit must be predicted with acceptable accuracy to determine the total plant noise level. The sources involved in this prediction methodology will be discussed. The issues include source power levels wall and duct transmission loss and the noise reduction characteristics through the HRSG flow path. Special measurement techniques required to quantify HRSG noise emissions are described. Whereas the HRSG is mainly a passive device that attenuates combustion turbine exhaust noise two HRSG generated sources steam venting and supplemental duct firing will also be discussed.

Wind dependence of deep ocean ambient noise at low frequencies  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A series of experiments has been carried out using a vertical line array to measure low?frequency ambient noise at deep ocean sites in the Northeast Pacific Ocean. Data in the band from 13 to 300 Hz were processed to obtain the array response directed vertically upward in order to study the noise due to local winds. The results indicate that there are two regimes of behavior depending on the wind speed v with the transition occurring at the onset of wave breaking v?10 kn. The noise level (NL) for a specific wind noise process was related to a power n of the wind speed according to the relationship NL=B+20n?log?v and the model parameters were obtained by fitting the data. The average value over the band was n=0.3 for wind speeds wind?generated noise was determined over the low?frequency band for wind speeds from 10–30 kn. The values are consistent with those of a recent analysis of available noise data [Kewley e t a l. ‘‘Low?frequency wind?generated ambient noise source levels ’’ J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 8 8 1894–1902 (1990)] and the model provides good agreement with wind noise measurements obtained with omni hydrophones in the southern oceans.

Quantum error correction with degenerate codes for correlated noise  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We introduce a quantum packing bound on the minimal resources required by nondegenerate error-correction codes for any kind of noise. We prove that degenerate codes can outperform nondegenerate ones in the presence of correlated noise, by exhibiting examples where the quantum packing bound is violated.

Using a flowchart representation of quantum optomechanical dynamics, we design coherent quantum-noise-cancellation schemes that can eliminate the back-action noise induced by radiation pressure at all frequencies and thus overcome the standard quantum limit of force sensing. The proposed schemes can be regarded as novel examples of coherent feedforward quantum control.

Room noise criteria standards: What features are important?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

At the joint meeting of ASA and NOISE?CON 97 in June 1997 the authors organized a special session on room noise criteria in which a ‘‘questionnaire’’ on the features of several existing noise criteria methods was answered by panel experts and distributed to the noise control community for their inputs. The four methods were: the A?weighted sound?pressure level; the noise criteria (NC) tangency method contained in older versions of the ASHRAE handbook; the balanced noise criterion method (NCB) contained in ANSI S12.2; and the room criteria method (RC) contained in ANSI S12.2 and the current ASHRAE handbook. The features considered were: speech interference high?frequency annoyance mid/low frequency annoyance very low?frequency annoyance pure tones temporal fluctuations user friendliness wider frequency range speech privacy costs and ability to handle noises with abnormal characteristics and complexity. The questionnaire rating was twofold: (1) how well does each method adequately account for each of the ‘‘features’’ (or characteristics) relative to the other methods and (2) what is the relative importance of each of the ‘‘features’’ in a noise criteria method. This paper presents the results of the questionnaires and reports progress since the joint meeting in ANSI S12 WG18 and ASHRAE TC2.6.

Numerical tools applied to power reactor noise analysis  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In this paper, the development of numerical tools allowing the determination of the neutron noise in power reactors is reported. These tools give the space-dependence of the fluctuations of the neutron flux induced by fluctuating properties of the medium in the 2-group diffusion approximation and in a 2-dimensional representation of heterogeneous systems. Some applications of these tools to power reactor noise analysis are then described. These applications include the unfolding of the noise source from the resulting neutron noise measured at a few discrete locations throughout the core, the study of the space-dependence of the Decay Ratio in Boiling Water Reactors, the noise-based estimation of the Moderator Temperature Coefficient of reactivity in Pressurized Water Reactors, the modeling of shell-mode core barrel vibrations in Pressurized Water Reactors, and the investigation of the validity of the point-kinetic approximation in subcritical systems.

Noise Estimate of Pendular Fabry-Perot through Reflectivity Change  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

A key issue in developing pendular Fabry-Perot interferometers as very accurate displacement measurement devices, is the noise level. The Fabry-Perot pendulums are the most promising device to detect gravitational waves, and therefore the background and the internal noise should be accurately measured and reduced. In fact terminal masses generates additional internal noise mainly due to thermal fluctuations and vibrations. We propose to exploit the reflectivity change, that occurs in some special points, to monitor the pendulums free oscillations and possibly estimate the noise level. We find that in spite of long transients, it is an effective method for noise estimate. We also prove that to only retain the sequence of escapes, rather than the whole time dependent dynamics, entails the main characteristics of the phenomenon. Escape times could also be relevant for future gravitational wave detector developments.

Costs and benefits of noise control in the petroleum industry  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Noise from industrial operations has become widely recognized as a potential hazard to health. industry labor and government share a common interest in assessing the hazard and reducing it to a socially acceptable risk. Achieving these ends requires the use of information about the amounts of noise exposure encountered the relation of exposure to risk and the costs of noise control required to achieve specified benefits. Such information pertaining specifically to the petroleum industry is the subject of this paper. We report here some estimates of benefits and costs aggregated for the petroleum industry. We define the benefits as reduced incidence of hearing damage in refinery workers in relation to certain existing and proposed Federal regulations. For such category of regulation we estimate the number of refinery workers now exposed to noise that exceeds the regulated amount and we estimate the national cost of reducing the noise to the regulated amount.

Decision analysis of polluted sites -- A fuzzy set approach  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A decision analysis based model (DAPS 1.0, Decision Analysis of Polluted Sites) has been developed to evaluate risks that polluted sites might pose to human health. Pollutants present in soils and sediments can potentially migrate from source to receptor(s), via different pathways. in the developed model, pathways are simulated via transport models (i.e., groundwater transport model, runoff-erosion model, air diffusion model, and sediment diffusion, and resuspension model in water bodies). Humans can be affected by pollutant migration through land and water use. health risks can arise from ingestion of and dermal contact with polluted water and soil, as well as through inhalation of polluted air. Quantitative estimates of risks are calculated for both carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic pollutants. Being very heterogeneous, soil and sediment systems are characterized by uncertain parameters. Concepts of fuzzy set theory have been adopted to account for uncertainty in the input parameters which are represented by fuzzy numbers. An inference model using fuzzy logic has been constructed for reasoning in the decision analysis.

Quantum Noise as an Entanglement Meter  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Entanglement entropy, which is a measure of quantum correlations between separate parts of a many-body system, has emerged recently as a fundamental quantity in broad areas of theoretical physics, from cosmology and field theory to condensed matter theory and quantum information. The universal appeal of the entanglement entropy concept is related, in part, to the fact that it is defined solely in terms of the many-body density matrix of the system, with no relation to any particular observables. However, for the same reason, it has not been clear how to access this quantity experimentally. Here we derive a universal relation between entanglement entropy and the fluctuations of current flowing through a quantum point contact (QPC) which opens a way to perform a direct measurement of entanglement entropy. In particular, by utilizing space-time duality of 1d systems, we relate electric noise generated by opening and closing the QPC periodically in time with the seminal S = 1/3 log L prediction of conformal field theory.

Spectral resolvability of iterated rippled noise  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A forward?masking experiment was used to estimate the spectral ripple of iterated rippled noise (IRN) that is possibly resolved by the auditory system. Tonal signals were placed at spectral peaks and valleys of IRN maskers for a wide variety of IRN conditions that included different delays number of iterations and stimulus durations. The differences in the forward?masked thresholds of tones at spectral peaks and valleys were used to estimate spectral resolvability and these results were compared to estimates obtained from a gamma?tone filter bank. The IRN spectrum has spectral peaks that are harmonics of the reciprocal of the delay used to generate IRN stimuli. As the number of iterations in the generation of IRN stimuli increases so does the difference in the spectral peak?to?valley ratio. For high number of iterations long delays and long durations evidence for spectral resolvability existed up to the 6th harmonic. For all other conditions spectral resolvability appeared to disappear at harmonics lower than the 6th or was not measurable at all. These data will be discussed in terms of the role spectral resolvability might play in processing the pitch pitch strength and timbre of IRN stimuli. [Work supported by a grant from NIDCD.

Robust Shot Noise Measurement for Continuous Variable Quantum Key Distribution  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We study a practical method to monitor in real-time the behavior of a Continuous Variable Quantum Key Distribution (CVQKD) system, and especially the shot noise measurement procedure, for the presence of an eavesdropper. The amount of secret key that can be extracted from the raw statistics of a CVQKD system depends strongly on a shot noise estimate since this quantity affects in particular the computation of the excess noise (i.e. noise in excess of the shot noise) added by an eavesdropper on the quantum channel. Some powerful quantum hacking attacks rely on faking the estimated value of the shot noise to hide an intercept-and-resend eavesdropping strategy, notably by targeting the calibration of the system, the saturation of the homodyne detection device or the wavelength dependency of some optical components. We describe a new countermeasure that consists in fairly general statistical tests build on top of an existing real-time shot-noise measurement technique and show that it is able to defeat all these attacks.
