Dump trucks are all-terrain vehicles with a high load capacity that are frequently used in public works to move earth within a site.



The Laboratory of Acoustics and Mechanical Engineering (LEAM UPC) worked on a project for AUSA to identify and quantify sources of noise in their fleet of vehicles, which include dump trucks. This led to the definition of a sequential procedure for improvement in the design of the product, to progressively reduce the sound emission.
