An analysis of men exposed to hazardous noise in the International Standards Organization 1999 database by Bovo et al showed that male workers exposed to a noise level of 100 dBA for 30 years exhibited a hearing loss at 4 kHz with a variation of 60 dB.
Independent of leak diameter (or more general, leak geometry) and operating pressure of the simulated pipe, leaks yielded additional contributions in the power spectra of recorded AE signals at frequencies above about 150 to 160 kHz for both types of AE sensor.
After briefly reviewing the history of benefit-cost analysis and revealing his new form of it, Zerbe criticizes the theory of market failure, arguing that KHZ analysis is a much superior concept.
A baseline measure of elevation localization accuracy using broadband noise was provided at the low-pass 16 khz (LP16) cutoff frequency.

HF SNHL patients were grouped by the HF SNHL cutoff frequencies evident on audiograms (e.g., 1, 2, and 4 kHz).
Preliminary testing of this baseline design identified elevated (4-12 kHz) whoosh noise in the mid to low flow operating range, which exceeded that of the previous generation design by up to 14 dB at the compressor inlet duct measurement location.
The single element 250 kHz transducers were fabricated using a 1-3 connectivity piezoelectric composite disk (65 % volume fraction of PZT5A in epoxy resin matrix), 25 mm diameter, poled in the thickness direction and with the first thickness mode at 250 kHz.
However, the difference between the component at 50 kHz and the component at 55 kHz is so little that the two components cannot be separated in the SPWVD distribution of the sample signal, so is in Fourier spectrum, as shown in Figure 4.
