28-30 August 2013
Marriott City Centre Hotel, Denver, USA
This will be the 5th in a series of international conferences which will once again provide a venue for all those with an interest in wind turbine noise, and its effects on people, to meet together and also meet with those who design wind turbine installations, both in industry and in the planning process. This conference is organised by INCE/Europe in co-operation with the Institute of Noise Control Engineering–USA whose Noise Con 2013 conference will be held in the same venue on 26-28 August. There will be an arrangement for reduced fees for delegates attending both conferences.
Offers of papers are invited and prospective authors should submit an abstract of around 200 words by 15 April 2013 to organiser/windturbinenoise2013.org.
- Sources of noise in wind turbines and dependence on atmospheric conditions
- Wind turbine noise modelling
- Microturbines including machines for urban projects
- Interactions of wind turbines in wind farms
- Design for low noise
- Propagation of wind turbine noise over land and water
- Wind turbines offshore
- Vibration from wind turbines
- Standards and regulations
- Effects of wind turbine noise on individuals and collective behaviour
- Planning requirements and decision-making
- Acoustic monitoring and surveillance
- Condition Monitoring
- Future prospects
And any other topic related to wind turbine noise and vibration – their generation, propagation, effects.
There is also an introductory course on noise on the afternoon prior to the conference which has proven very popular in previous years. There will be a table-top exhibition and further detail of this are available on the Noise Con 2013 website: http://inceusa.org/nc13/
CD-Roms of the Proceedings of the previous conferences are available from the INCE/Europe office.
