Title High idle as a predictor of noise exposure
Bibliographic information July-Aug. 1990, Vol.35, No.1, p.21-27. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract High idle noise measurements were conducted on internal combustion engine-powered mining equipment using a sound level meter, microphone and tape recorder. It was concluded that high noise measurements correlate poorly with mining machine operator's noise exposure expressed in percent or as a time weighted average in dB. This suggests that factors other than engine noise contribute significantly to the operator's noise exposure.
