Noise Characterization, Field Surveys, EMI, Vibrations, accelerometer, guass meter
Today's Advance Technology Facilities require low noise levels and increased noise monitoring. Ambient noise can interfere with the accuracy and precision of experiments and manufacturing processes. Therefore preconstruction site surveys are needed to develop strategies for mitigating noise. Vibration and low frequency electromagnetic fields are particularly detrimental for sensitive instruments, and they are also difficult to mitigate. However a large part of these costs can be avoided or minimized if a quiet building site is selected in the first place. Accelerometers and gauss meters combined with a computer for acquisition and analysis provide a low cost method of evaluating noise levels at proposed building sites. This work examines low frequency vibration and electromagnetic fields at two proposed sites for the planned Physical Science Building at the University of Central Florida.
