Noise Control: Proceedings: Bureau of Mines Technology Transfer Seminars, Pittsburgh, PA, July 24, 1984, and Denver, CO, July 26, 1984. Pittsburgh, PA: U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, IC 8986, 1984 Jul; :90-106
This Bureau of Mines paper reviews the initial noise control research conducted on a load-haul-dump (LHD) machine with a 5-yd3 bucket capacity. Additional noise control research has been conducted on five other vehicles--three 2-yd3- and two 8-yd3-capacity vehicles. This paper presents a description of the machines treated, a general discussion of the noise control treatments used, and a summary of the acoustic and thermal performance of the treatments.
