Noise Impact at Dorval Residential Area
MetadataShow full item record
The consequence of any airport operation results in environmental impacts associated with high levels of noises and vibrations. These possibly will have severe negative effects to workers and surrounding residents and their properties. Here we look at the noise impacts associated with the operation of Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport in Montreal, Canada. Field measurements were taken in order to determine noise levels at different locations at the surrounding residential area of the airport. First, the study discusses the fundamentals of sound, such as physics, concept, intensity and speed of sound. In addition, the study reviews other studies and models that related to this study. For example,six-step model and Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau Model. Moreover, the discussion covers Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport in terms of background information, environmental policy and sounds cape management. Finally, A case study is discussed in details, such as methodology, results of noise levels and evaluates the noise impact using Canadian standards for residential areas. The project will focus on the basic physics of sound, such as the concept of sound, sound intensity, speed of sound, sound pressure level, and noise and its exposure level.
