Off-Highway Noise - Diverging Demands of the Future 2000-01-2548

Recent years has seen the development of increased restrictions on allowable noise output from Earthmoving equipment within the European Union, Australia, and Japan. At the same time, other environmental issues such as engine emissions have been the prime focus of America.

This paper reviews the changes in recent years, illustrates the methods adopted so far to reduce noise, and considers what the future may hold in order to meet both legislative and customer demands.
