  • Predicting Underwater Noise due to Offshore Pile Driving: Modeling of Noise Reduction Methods (BORA)
    The global target of the joint project BORA is to develop a calculation model to predict waterborne noise due to offshore pile driving. This includes especially models to predict the sound development at the source due to pile deformation and vibration, the sound transmission into water and soil and the consideration of the sound attenuation due to the air-water mixture produced by bubble curtains or due to other sound reduction methods.

  • From the source to the perception
    In the project WEA-Akzeptanz an interdisciplinary approach will be followed, which links the physical sound generation, radiation and propagation with the perception at the immission site. In cooperation with the industrial partner Senvion, the IKT and the IMUK of the Leibniz Universität Hannover, an acoustic overall model will be developed comprising the sound generation at the wind turbine, the sound propagation to the receiver under realistic atmospheric conditions and a perception model.
