  • Effects of traffic Noise: South-East Freeway, Brisbane 

    Brown, Alan; Law, HG (8th Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) Conference, 1976)
    A survey was conducted of 288 residents living within 100m of the South east freeway, Brisbane, to determine the magnitude and distribution of the effects of the freeway traffic noise. Respondents were asked to self report ...
  • Prediction of freeway noise levels (L10): an evaluation of the U.K. dept of the environment procedure 

    Brown, Alan; Hollingworth, Greg (9th Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) Conference, 1878)
    The United Kingdom Department of the Environment has published a method of predicting road traffic noise levels (l 10) from traffic parameters and roadway geometry. To test this prediction procedure, l 10 (half hour) and ...
  • The noise-response relationship near a freeway 

    Brown, Alan (10th Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) Conference, 1980)
    A correlation analysis is reported relating the noise annoyance of 142 respondents near the south east freeway in Brisbane to noise levels measured at 17 locations. No relationship was found between individuals' annoyance ...
  • Road Noise Barriers: Experience on Western Arterial in Brisbane 

    Golding, S; Hall, A; Brown, Alan (13th Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) Conference, 1986)
    In order to reduce the impact of traffic noise on the suburban infrastructure, noise barriers have been constructed on the russell terrace - jerrang street section of the Western Arterial in Brisbane. This section of the ...
  • Measuring dose response relationships for environmental factors 

    Brown, Alan (Seminar on Measuring Social Behaviour in Road Research, 1980)
    Using an investigaton of the dose-reponse relationship for road traffic noise as an exanrple, this paper examines some of the methodological issues involved in studies which attempt to relate human response to some aspects, ...
  • Event based indicators for road traffic noise exposure assessment 

    De Coensel, Bert; Brown, Alan (11th European Congress and Exposition on Noise Control Engineering (Euronoise 2018), 2018)
    Prediction of human response to road traffic noise might be improved by accounting for the occurrence of noise events in addition to using indicators solely based on energy equivalent or percentile measures of noise exposure. ...
  • Defining AR: Public perceptions of an evolving landscape 

    Thompson, A; Potter, LE (Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI'20), 2020)
    This paper presents findings from an ongoing investigation into the public understanding of augmented reality (AR) technologies. Despite AR technologies becoming increasingly available to the general public, perceptions ...
  • Longshore Sediment Interruption and Bypassing of a Multipurpose Artificial Reef - Preliminary Results 

    Vieira da Silva, Guilherme; Strauss, Darrell; Shaeri, Saeed; Murray, Thomas; Tomlinson, Rodger; Hamilton, Daniel (9th International Conference on Coastal Sediments 2019, 2019)
    Nearshore morphological changes and sand bypassing of multipurpose artificial reefs (MAPR) are still under reported in the literature. This research aims to further understand the bypassing of a MPAR to inform maintenance ...
