Noise Modeling

Get sound advice you can trust. Count on GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech’s unique noise prediction programs to give your operation the strongest evaluation possible.

Changes in operations or greenfield site permitting typically require noise level measurement, prediction and evaluation. When there is no ability to measure existing noise or existing noise levels require prediction and demonstration of technical merit to become part of permit documents or testimony, GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech has the experience and qualifications to provide documented, irrefutable noise level evaluations.

After considering whether your site has commercial, residential or industrial sources or neighbors, we make noise level predictions based on in-house software plus CadnaA software. These high-level noise predictive programs provide the ultimate in noise evaluation. Mining equipment, vehicle traffic, aircraft overflights and community activity may be evaluated, with predictions of off-site noise levels graphically represented. Where structures are present, specific point level receptor calculations may be made. With GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech, determining the specific effects of buffers and berms never involves unsupported estimations. Actual measurement of noise levels combined with predictions give you and your permit the maximum support possible.

Combining noise measurement with noise modeling prediction gives your operation the strongest evaluation possible. Once modeling has been completed GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech’s site measurement work can corroborate the mapping. Continual follow-up measurement with our Re:mote Monitoring system can provide ongoing documentation.

Like all GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech services, our noise modeling work provides clients with the technical support and accurate information needed to make decisions.
