How Loud Is Too Loud Decibel levels of common sounds

The higher the number in decibels, the louder the noise. The louder the noise, the greater the risk of hearing loss. Hearing loss can occur with regular exposure to noise levels of 110 decibels or more for periods longer than one minute. Not only can noise cause hearing loss, it can also cause tinnitus. So How loud is too loud?

Diamond Grinding for Roadway Noise Control

Demonstrating that the traffic noise levels can be lowered due to the diamond grinding would provide justification for dia mond grinding Route 85 in San Jose, CA to lower the noise levels in adjacent areas. Because there is a truck ban for Route 85, the main traffic noise source is from the interaction of tires and pavement surface.

Conventional diamond grinding (CDG) was used on the remainder of the project. The photos below that were taken approximately one year apart show the effect of studded tires on the NGCS texture. The attrition or wearing down of the flat areas between the grooves is believed to be the cause of the increases in noise levels.

Common environmental noise levels CHC

Common environmental noise levels. How loud is too loud? Continued exposure to noise above 85 dBA (adjusted decibels) over time will cause hearing loss. The volume (dBA) and the length of exposure to the sound will tell you how harmful the noise is. In general, the louder the noise, the less time required before hearing loss will occur.
