Chris Real from DPS Technical, Inc. will present Vehicle Noise Control and Management Basics as vehicle technology is evolving and motorized recreation areas have the constant pressure of managing multiple aspects of environmental protection and multiple uses. Unwanted sound or NOISE is a primary topic whenever vehicles are part of the recreational environment. The presentation will provide an overview of sound control strategies including field sound testing measurement methodologies, sound measuring instruments and regulatory challenges. This presentation will discuss vehicle designs, primarily off-highway vehicles, and for completeness, a brief overview of on-highway vehicles will be reviewed as well as muffler designs and Spark Arresters. This webinar is the first in a multi-part series that will give the foundation for new field and management staff as well as a refresher for experienced staff.

Presenters include all NOHVCC staff:
