Aeroacoustics All Services Aeroacoustics Early avoidance and effective mitigation of wind-induced noise from building elements AddThis Sharing Buttons Share to TwitterShare to LinkedInShare to Email The wind often causes parts of buildings or structures to make noise. Usually this “aeroacoustic” (wind-induced) noise is insignificant. But sometimes building elements make significant tonal noise that can be heard miles away. Such problems are often extremely annoying and difficult to solve. They can also become publicly infamous: Because aeroacoustic issues are rare and conspicuous, they are often considered newsworthy. Shades on building facade The good news is that the fixes are usually easy—if you look for this issue during early design. (The potential culprits are often quite small.) But once aeroacoustic noise issues occur, they can be technically difficult and very costly to mitigate—and to litigate. Our service We offer a unique range of services to address aeroacoustic noise: desktop design reviews, wind tunnel testing and remediation of existing aeroacoustic issues. We can do a screening assessment on your early detailed design to flag potential aeroacoustic noise issues. After this review, we can provide design guidance to help you eliminate the risk.
