RSG Senior Consultant Karl Washburn was invited to present a paper titled, “Engineering Quieter Off-Road Machines” as part of the two-day workshop, “Engineering a Quieter America: Progress on Consumer and Industrial Product Noise Reduction.” The workshop was held in Washington, DC on October 6th and 7th and was sponsored by the National Academy of Engineering (NAE).
This was the third workshop in a series following NAE’s publication of “Technology for a Quieter America” in 2010. The NAE, which advises Congress and the Administration on policy regarding engineering, will publish the workshop transcript in 2016.
RSG Director John Hinckley to present today at the Air Quality Modeling and Public Health Workshop in Albany, NY.
His presentation will discuss the air quality permitting work performed for a new Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant at SUNY ESF in Syracuse, NY. It will focus on how air dispersion modeling of CHP emissions was used to help design the project by identifying the stack height and emission controls needed to meet the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).
RSG Sr. Director Ken Kaliski and Sr. Consultant Karl Washburn have been in San Francisco this week attending Inter-Noise 2015, the 44th International Congress and Exposition on Noise Control Engineering. The conference, known as the largest noise conference in the world, is sponsored by the International Institute of Noise Control Engineering (I-INCE).
On Tuesday, Ken co-chaired the “Renewable Energy Noise Control Technologies” session. Today, he gave a presentation titled “Field Evaluation of Reflected Noise from a Single Noise Barrier.”
RSG Directors Greg Spitz, Mark Bradley, and Stephane Hess along with RSG Vice President Maren Outwater are presenting this week at the 14th International Conference on Travel Behaviour Research in Windsor, UK.
The conference, chaired by Stephane, is focusing this year on “transitions in a digital world”—how technology is changing both the ways we travel and measure travel. RSG is a key sponsor of the event.
Three RSGers to present this week at the New York State Association of Metropolitan Planning Organizations (NYSAMPO) 2015 Annual Conference in Syracuse, NY.
Eric Talbot will present “The Ohio DOT Infrastructure Resiliency Plan” on work RSG is conducting for the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) to provide adaptation responses to climate change effects. Colin Smith will present “’Big Data’ in Transportation Planning: User Perspectives, Challenges, and Successes,” which will review the state of the practice in transportation planning and travel modeling with respect to using “big data” sources of travel data to inform planning decisions. Steven Gayle will moderate several sessions and will present “Resiliency Planning” on how states and MPOs are planning for more resilient transportation networks in the face of more frequent extreme weather events.
RSG Director, Colin Smith, to present at the 2015 Transportation Datapalooza in Washington, DC from June 16-17.
