Article: Experts tackle motorsport noise - MAS Environmental
www.masenv.co.uk, 24 July 2014 [cached]
is the "thorny question" faced by noise professionals when asked to assist in motorsport issues, said Dr Mike Fillery of Fillery Acoustics in his paper.
...
says Fillery. "I can subscribe to that - it is exciting. But he wonders how quiet it can be while still retaining the excitement. The level close to the traffic at the start of a race might be, say, 100dB. "If you drop if to 95dB, will that make a difference? Does it stop your enjoyment? For somebody some distance away, dropping it by 5dB might be the difference between hearing it and not.
"As far as I know, no-one has tested how annoying motor racing noise actually is," says Fillery.
...
The static test does not adequately measure the potential for noise emissions when the vehicle is moving, said Fillery in his paper. "Many have tried to correlate the static test with the noise emission from a moving vehicle without success". He too secs it as open to cheating - for example, the test can be invalidated by modern engine management systems that allow the static vehicles to be run at the required rpm but at a much reduced power output resulting in much lower noise emissions.
...
Fillery says that LAmax has been used successfully to control noise levels on quiet use days at Donington Park. The LAmax limit for sensitive locations was set as at 5dB above the ambient LAcq. r trackside drive-by LA s., was derived for any individual vehicle. Continuous monitoring ensures that any transgressors can be immediately removed from the track. "This provides both circuit operator and the community with an instant response to overly loud vehicles, unlike the delayed response resulting from a daily LAeq,T limit," said Fillery.

Dr Mike Fillery recognised with Award for Services to the Institute of Acoustics
Dr Mike Fillery, a consultant with Scott Wilson, has been presented with the Institute of Acoustics Award for Services to the Institute of Acoustics.
Mike was presented with his award by Colin English, President of the Institute of Acoustics, at the Institute's recent Autumn Conference on Advances in Noise and Vibration Engineering.
...
Upon accepting his award, Mike commented that, "I have always thoroughly enjoyed my work with the Institute and this award is the unnecessary but welcome icing on the cake."
Mike studied at Surrey University where he gained a BSc in Materials Technology and was awarded his PhD for work on the microstructure of carbon fibres.
In 1980 he became a senior lecturer in Physics at the University of Derby, where he later taught the Institute's Diploma course. Initially this was limited to the hearing and hearing protection module, but eventually he became course leader, delivering most of the lectures. In 1987 he organised a short course for the CEGB on noise at work and this led onto the Work Place Noise Assessment courses taught at the University.
While at Derby he also helped to initiate a taught MSc in Applied Acoustics in which the IOA Diploma studies counted for a third of the course. He was also responsible for the development of the successful MSc programme in Environmental Management which contained a significant acoustics input.
From the late 1980s he also undertook consultancy work, which provided many useful examples for his teaching material, and he left the University in 2002 to become a full-time consultant, first with the Symonds Group and then as Head of Noise and Vibration with Scott Wilson Ltd.
Mike was a member of the Institute's Education Committee from 1992 and became Chairman in 1999. During his time as Chairman, Mike presided over several important changes, including the appointment of the Education Manager, a significant expansion of the Diploma Distance Learning Programme and the introduction of the coursework element for the specialist modules. He served frequently on the teams re-accrediting Diploma Centres.
He stepped down as Chair of Education Committee in 2005 when he joined the small band of semi-retired exiled acousticians in the south of France. He has also served on several other education-related committees as well as being Midlands Branch Secretary for many years.
Colin English, President of the Institute of Acoustics said, "The Institute of Acoustics is very proud that the Award for Services to the Institute this year goes to Mike Fillery.
...
Mike has played a major role in developing the educational work of the Institute and is a worthy recipient."
GOOD VIBRATIONS FOR SCOTT WILSON - scottwilson.com
www.scottwilson.com, 22 Oct 2004 [cached]
Noise specialist Mike Fillery has joined multidisciplinary consultant Scott Wilson as the Head of its Chesterfield based Noise and Vibration team.
...
"By the nature of Scott Wilson's varied multidisciplinary work this role has the potential to be involved in many different project areas and locations," says Mike.
...
During his career Mike has provided specialist acoustic advice covering a wide range of noise problems including environmental planning consents, noise nuisance investigations, building acoustic design, noise control problems and noise exposure assessments.He has also helped to a wide range of clients ranging from local authorities, private developers, architects, central government and the European Commission.In 2003 as part of a Defra research contract he wrote ‘A Guide to the Management of Environmental Noise from Sports and Recreation' which is due to be published shortly.This year he has researched the use of published guidance on noise in the planning process as part of the Defra review of PPG24 ‘Planning and Noise'
Recently Mike has presented a paper on this work at the Autumn Conference of the Institute of Acoustics.He has an active interest in the need to protect areas of tranquillity from noise pollution, which resulted in Mike being contracted to write a review report on ‘Quiet Areas' for the European Commission.

Institute of Acoustics - Cars Don't Get Noisier as they get Faster
www.ioa.org.uk, 19 Mar 2010 [cached]
Especially when, for supporters, the noise may be an essential part of the experience, "adding a frisson of elemental thunder to the whole drama", said Dr Mike Fillery, managing director of Fillery Acoustics, Milford.
Mike was one of nine experts discussing such issues at the Institute Of Acoustics Motorsport Noise meeting at Silverstone Circuit on March 18.
...
However, a problem "with static testing is that it is difficult to police properly and is open to cheating by competitors," said Mike.
• Consistent testing of vehicles requires regular training and proper equipping of noise officers. Yet, "no matter how correct or how fair the testing, there can be considerable pressure upon race officers to turn a blind eye if a significant number of competitors fail their noise test".
• Cars don't get noisier as they get faster: Mike referred to the M Sc project of student Robin Lyons, who investigated the variation in noise levels of cars as they travelled along the straight at different race circuits.
...
In 1996, Mike carried out a survey for the Association of Motor Racing Circuit Owner (AMRCO) on the practice of noise control on their circuits throughout England. This enabled Mike to take many noise readings.
• "One interesting finding was that for most events not involving major sponsorship, that means most club and amateur events, the noise level from cars increased with the finishing position. That is, the faster a competitor was, then the quieter was his car. This can be explained by the observation that the faster cars would be the better prepared with higher budgets and so their exhaust systems would be newer and in good order."
Mike suggested further investigation was needed on whether it was the level or frequencies of motorsports noise that "really bugs noise complainants". He also pondered the best way to set up "effective means of dialogue between noise complainants and motorsports".
