The IOA has published the new Transport Noise Supplement available free to download. Part of the IOA’s charitable remit is to promote and advance the art, science and technology of acoustics in all their aspects. To this end, we produce magazines aside from the member’s Acoustics Bulletin’ to engage with a wider audience comprising:
• those whose careers may touch on acoustics, but not be their primary occupation;
• students who may be considering acoustics as a career; and
• members of the public who just want to find out a bit more about the science.
These supplements are available to IOA members, but in the main, are written with a lighter touch with only necessary technical details. They are all clearly IOA branded and also serve to promote the Institute and its members.
Our latest publication, ‘Transport Noise, how it affects our health and wellbeing’ has just been issued online and it will be printed as required to be available at industry and public events where appropriate. This magazine includes articles by noted industry experts and explores noise from road, rail and air transport, how it is measured, predicted, managed and mitigated.
This publication follows IOA’s Careers supplement and Innovations supplement both published in 2019. The success of this series of IOA publications indicates a strong audience and the plan is to publish more on different acoustics topics in due course.
