This title considers the scale and nature of the noise pollution, typical noise levels and units of measurement and summarizes the scope of the two pieces of legislation effective in the UK: the Control of Pollution Act 1974 and the Environmental Protection Act 1990. The main part of the guide looks at ways of predicting noise levels and provides simple formulas, with worked examples, for calculating the level of noise generated by different types of operation at various distances, taking into account the effects of screening and reflection. Examples are provided for both stationary equipment and mobile plant. The book concludes by giving guidance on the equipment, methods and frequency of measuring noise on site, and on ways of controlling it.
