39th International Congress on Noise Control Engineering 2010, INTER-NOISE 2010 | Year: 2010

In 2003 the new runway at Schiphol Airport starts to operate. One of the new effects in the residential areas at a distance of a few kilometers was the noise of the aircraft just before take-off. The so-called 'groundnoise' causes annoyance. Local politicians promise the residents that measures should be taken to reduce the annoyance. In the covenant about the development of the airport, signed by all involved partners, research for adequate solutions was part of the deal. On national level a project started to find a dose-effect relation and, if possible, a standard for this kind of noise, characterized by low frequencies. Source
