Acoustic, Noise and Vibration Services

Extracted pages from Aust Mining Review Aug_2016


Dr Broner has over 30 years involvement with the preparation of Environmental Impact and Effects Statements and of Environmental Management plans. Appropriate criteria have been designated and the predicted noise emissions, based on SoundPlan noise level predictions, have been assessed against these criteria. The potential impact and intrusiveness have then been assessed and annoyance due to various noise sources assessed. Norm has also provided expert witness at Planning Appeals and VCAT hearings.
Norm has been involved with industrial noise assessment, noise source ranking and noise control. Where necessary, optimum cost-effective noise controls have been recommended and designed to reduce excessive noise emissions to within statutory and regulatory limits. For example, Norm has designed blow down vent silencers and air handling system silencers. He has also designed and specified full or partial enclosures and vibration isolation for compressors, pumps, screens, turbines etc

Noise mitigation measures are optimised to obtain the best $/decibel noise reduction. For mine and quarry projects, the impact and assessment of blasting and ground vibration has also been assessed.
Dr Broner has also been involved with the prediction, assessment and control of vibration. He has measured and assessed ground vibration with respect to human perception and annoyance and also with respect to potential building damage. He has also been involved with construction noise and vibration mitigation and with the assessment of vibration due to aircraft flyovers.
