Abstract

The large number of operations involving noisy machinery experienced with site activities results in considerable variation in the noise levels experienced at receiver locations. In this chapter an approach to the prediction of site generated noise levels is proposed based upon simple probability theory which enables details regarding the statistical uncertainties associated with noise level predictions to be determined. It is suggested that this technique could provide the basis of a generalized prediction technique and a simple noise management tool.
