Abstract

University campuses located in the heart of cities can be exposed to significant noise levels that can hinder the learning of students, the performance of the teaching community and staff, as well as the quality of life for residents in the neighborhood. This article presents the results of a study project conducted by students of the “Industrial Acoustics” course at École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), with the main objective of quantifying and assessing the outdoor and indoor noise levels on the university campus. The students were also tasked with identifying the main sources of indoor noise using an acoustic camera and modeling an acoustic metamaterial that would help reduce the tonal noise emitted by transformers at low frequencies.
