  1. 1. Environmental Impact from Wave Energy Converters : Underwater Noise

    Författare :Kalle Haikonen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Wave energy conversion is a potentially clean and sustainable form ofenergy conversion with no emissions of gases or liquids during operation.There are other environmental issues that need to be taken in consideration.The deployment of a wave power farm will contribute with new surface formarine organisms to colonize.

  2. 2. On noise and hearing loss : Prevalence and reference data

    Författare :Magnus Johansson; Stig Arlinger; Einar Laukli; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; irreversible occupational disease; noise-induced hearing; noise-induced measurements OAE ; spontaneous otoacoustic emissions SOAE ; transient evoked otoacoustic emissions TEOAE ; distortion product otoacoustic emissions DPOAE ; Audiology; Audiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Noise exposure is one of the most prevalent causes of irreversible occupational disease in Sweden and in many other countries. In hearing conservation programs, aimed at preventing noise-induced hearing loss, audiometry is an important instrument to highlight the risks and to assess the effectiveness of the program. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Underwater radiated noise from Point Absorbing Wave Energy Converters : Noise Characteristics and Possible Environmental Effects

    Författare :Kalle Haikonen; Jan Sundberg; Sigray Peter; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Wave energy conversion; renewable energy; environmental impact; marine ecology; underwater noise;

    Sammanfattning : The conversion of wave energy into electrical energy has the potential to become a clean and sustainable form of renewable energy conversion. However, like all forms of energy conversion it will inevitably have an impact on the marine environment, although not in the form of emissions of hazardous substances (gases, oils or chemicals associated with anticorrosion).

  4. 4. Vertical Axis Wind Turbines : Tower Dynamics and Noise

    Författare :Erik Möllerström; Jonny Hylander; Fredric Ottermo; Göran Sidén; Hans Bernhoff; Mats Åbom; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VAWT; H-rotor; eigenfrequency; semi-guy-wired tower; noise emission; sound power level;

    Sammanfattning : Vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) have with time been outrivaled by the today common and economically feasible horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWTs). However, VAWTs have several advantages such as the possibility to put the drive train at ground level, lower noise emissions and better scaling behavior which still make them interesting for research.

  5. 5. On the impact of noise and energy demand from traffic : An assessment using microscopic modelling

    Författare :Johan Nygren; Susann Boij; Romain Rumpler; Ciarán J. O'Reilly; Arnaud Can; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Traffic simulation; sustainable transport; noise emissions; environmental impact; energy efficiency; Trafiksimulering; hållbar transport; buller; miljöpåverkan; energieffektivitet; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : Noise emissions from transportation remain one of the greatest environmental issues of modern day. Inhabitants in urban environments are especially exposed, with almost 80 million people in the European Union exposed to noise levels exceeding the recommended limits set by the World Health Organization (WHO).
