Abstract

A new approach to industrial-noise modeling that takes the form of a combined industrial-noise prediction, visualization and auralization system is presented. The system, called PlantNoise, is designed to predict and present noise to a listener in a way that accurately simulates the noise levels that a worker in a workroom would be exposed to.
