During this NAG meeting, Andrew Hathaway and Brent Kraay presented on a local acoustical consulting job which they’ve had an opportunity to work on, involving noise emissions from an industrial site to a nearby residential property line in Omaha. Brent had to be sneaky while making the measurements, as workers at the industrial company would stop their actions if they spotted him with a sound level meter!
The Acoustic Nugget of the week was on new minimum noise guidelines that have been proposed for hybrid vehicles. And on Feb. 7-8, 2013, the local ASHRAE student chapter is planning a visit to Governair’s manufacturing facilities in Oklahoma City which do feature large reverberation chambers. At least one NAG member is planning to participate on that trip.
