Abstract

Linear programming techniques have been applied to the problem of determining the minimum-cost noise-control programs for typical sawmills. The sawmills were modeled as arrays of point noise sources and receptor sites, and the necessary noise reductions at each source and receptor to meet an arbitrary maximum noise level were calculated. The mathematical model presents a method for assuring that engineering controls of noise in large systems are applied in the most effective manner. The effect of proposed system modifications can be predicted and resource expenditure minimized.
