I will be working as an assistant instructor for the National Transit Institute’s Transit Noise and Vibration Impact Assessment Course later this fall in Chicago IL. The 3-day course will cover basic noise and vibration control concepts as described in the revised FTA Transit Noise and Vibration Impact guidance manual, and is designed for transit agency employees, engineers, and consultants. World-renowned rail noise expert Carl Hanson is the principal instructor.
Online registration is available at NTI’s website.
Writer Garret Keizer is in the process of writing a book about “the politics and history of human noise.” I met him last year at Inter-Noise ‘06 and had the pleasure of spending some time with him a couple of months ago. He recently setup a web site called “Noise Stories” where he invites readers to share their personal experiences relating to noise.
If you have a story to tell, please visit his site and share.
Pay close attention to the discussion of Chladni. Remember, mode shapes are a function of geometry, not materials.
