Welcome to the first post to the new Noise and Vibration section of the APE Website. This section has been created to inform the public about projects and research in relation to the noise and vibration of piledriving hammers (vibratory, diesel and hydraulic). Some current and prospective clients may find this information useful when deciding and researching what kind of effects a hammer will have on the surrounding environment and wild life.
This post references the pictures on the right from top to bottom.
1. The first picture is a Fraser River Pile and Dredge using a sheet of carpet to hold back diesel smoke.
2. Here is an example of a “Hat” that has been done to make a diesel hammer quite on a jobsite in Florida. These are sound deadening mats that offer a considerable amount of noise prevention on around a jobsite.
