The INCE Professional Examination is an eight-hour, examination covering the principles and practice of noise control engineering. The examination is eight hours long with a one-hour lunch break. The exam is intended to evaluate the practical knowledge of an individual which has been gained from an engineering education and approximately five years of practical experience in noise control engineering. It is not an academic examination. The exam covers the principles and practice of noise control engineering. This includes the application of fundamental acoustics, mechanical dynamics and the psycho-physiological properties of the ear to noise control programs. Specialized areas include instrumentation and measurements, hearing conservation, noise problems in buildings, in transportation systems, in the community and in industry.

Numerical Simulation has become an accepted and essential part of interior and exterior acoustics and vibration design for a range of industries and products and especially for the vehicle industry in order to allow effective early design and to complement and reduce the amount of testing involved in product development. Well-established tools and modeling practices exist for several different simulation methods each of which has its own particular advantages and limitations based on frequency range, modeling objectives, and speed versus accuracy tradeoff and computer resource required. This full-day course is intended to offer to the test engineer, minimally to moderately experienced simulation engineer or those wishing to have a deeper understanding of one or more of the presented analysis methods an introduction to these different modeling techniques with the goal of improving understanding of the best applications to current state-of-the art vehicle acoustic and vibration design processes. The team of instructors offering nearly a combined century of applied acoustics and vibration simulation experience will present background, theory, practical application examples and discussion of several of the current state-of-art analysis useful methods listed in the agenda.

Technical Tours

 
A Marine Mammal Perspective on Acoustic Environments • Research and Application in a Marine Park Setting The tour will begin at Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute’s Animal Behavior and Senses laboratory, with an overview of research on the effects of human-made noise on animals and recently-developed guidelines for limiting exposure. Tour attendees will learn how these guidelines relate to the real-world setting in a large marine park, SeaWorld San Diego. A private ride up the park’s Skytower will give them a broad perspective on noise in this setting and acoustic measurements related to park project environmental impact reports will be described, including discussion of ride acoustics and treatments in guest areas.
