The Giant Art That Keeps Planes Quiet

Dipublikasikan tanggal 21 Okt 2019
Next to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is the Buitenschot Land Art Park, a giant set of ridges and furrows cut into the landscape. Yes, it's art: but it also stops some local residents from being exposed to jet noise.

  • I got really lucky with the weather and really unlucky with the direction the planes were going.

    • Enjoy Holland Down here in “the south” it doesn’t rain that much

    • Dutch weather is not that great😅

    • Dude, I gotta say, your content is next level! From IT (the one with the dates from a programmer's perspective is awesome) up to this kind and other content on other channels, it's a delight when you upload. Thanks!

    • @spj515 No, in rooms you use three types of insulation, Method one: Use soft things like wool carpets to absorb the sound, which makes it less loud on the other side of the wall. Method two: Use hard flat objects that reflect the sound back, sometimes this can be shaped to deflect sound into a specific direction. Method three: Use objects with a lot of surface area and lots of irregularity, lots of small spikes and dents, this is to scatter the sound and make it deflect many times causing the sound waves to lose a lot of its energy You use method one if you want to muffle the sound a bit, make it sound more at home, this is why you have all kinds of furniture in the house, from carpets to couches which help muffle the sound. You use method two if you want to sound isolate the room, but not muffle the sound, this is used for concert halls, as you don't want to lose sound, you need the room to deflect it back and create a good harmonic sound. Method three is used if you want to make a real death silent room, it can be used as torture or as a room to work in, it muffles the sound and can be made to muffle more than 99% of the sound

    • Does this mean that the similarly shaped sound insulating boards people put on their walls to reduce sound transference (like in a musicians practice room) should be perpendicular to the wall rather than flat against the wall?

  • p l a n e s i l e n c e r

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="89">1:29</a> Tom saying that 2003 is new:Me, born in 2003: I'm new?

  • The place is called buitenschot, I always let the dog out there.

  • I always go fishing there

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="118">1:58</a> I mean you’re not wrong. Everything is flat here :|

  • Ik woon daar

  • I would love to live behind planes taking off

  • Does the art keep the Jelling stones quiet?

  • They could make an artificial mountain from all the excess dirt dug up from construction sites. That would definitely dampen the noise.

  • Kind of gave me some anxiety

  • I need to build one of those in front of my house. I'm sure the city won't mind.

  • that pattern looks like those noise reducing foam pads you see in musicians studios

  • You guys remember when this dude threw a drum kit off a cliff

  • Heathrow needs this.

  • Fun thing i live in the netherlands and i did not even know this existed😂

  • They should use the jet engine noise to produce electricity.

  • at the beginning of this video i instinctively turned down the volume on my headphones :D

  • Who else remembers reading about this on their PSATs from two years ago

  • I live in Amsterdam but ive never heard of this.... looks cool though

  • “It can even filter out steady noise, such as a fan” Me: oh yea my fan is on.

  • IK this is an old video, but i wanted to point something out. WIth the wave form thing... Isnt that a plot of sound intensity? Or maybe, Intensity of average frequencies? Think about it, it cant be a plot of all frequencies we are hearing. it must just be intensity of one or an average. Horizontal axis IS time, therefore vertical axis must be either frequency or intensity. There is no third axis for the other. Or i am completely mad, Im tired and need a nap.

  • I'm always amazed by people complaining about airport noise. Most airports, especially large ones, have been in place for a very long time. By design, airports are built on the edge of population centers for noise control and keeping buildings out of approach paths. But what do developers do? They build housing tracts near airports... DUH! if you move in next to an airport, expect some noise. Don't want to listen to airplanes? Stay away from airports.

  • skip to <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="78">1:18</a> if you want to avoid the rambling at the start and get to the actual story

  • I live right next to an airport directly under the flight path and my brain filters out all plane noise... unless I'm watching a movie,

  • Of course it was flat ground, it was the Netherlands. - How observant of you. ;-)

  • incomplete video. you should go to the town and measure the sound levels

  • I would like to identify a system that filters out the noise of neighborhood barking dogs.

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="93">1:33</a> hehe, i can imagine getting your taxi clearance: "KLM 123 ready for taxi" "KLM 123 taxi via P A J F C J M N X U F1" "Uh... taxi via, uh, P... A... F.... what was it again?" (obviously not real taxiways)

  • Wij noemen dat kleine dijken

  • I can see my house 😜

  • This concept can also affect the weather by breaking up wind patterns. I'm waiting to see it used in a similar way to stop tornados.

  • well as a dutchmen i can proudly tell you all, The sound wave prolly did not make it into acceptable limits, so the government changed the limits.

  • This remembers of that colossi fight Shadow of the Colossus were you have to hide under the ground to make the colossus stay in a position were you can climb it.

  • i read the title as "The Giant Ant That Keeps Planes Quiet" and i was like "WHAT"

  • Sorry that's not art

  • Very interesting engineering solution but I guess to work even better the mounds would need to match the amplitude as well as the frequency.

  • I live about 1-2 km from an International Airport and less than 500 m away from the railway. My brain ignores the planes and trains noises

  • I can vouch for the filtering thing. Eight years of living right next to one of my city's busiest streets, and I no longer even notice most traffic sounds.

  • Imagine having to taxi out to that one runway that's in the next town over..damn

  • So that’s why I seem unable to hear the helicopter that lands within 100 metres of my house about 10 times a day?

  • I realized this was The Netherlands when I saw those tulip fields

  • What happened to the framerate? Is my com lagging or is it the video?

  • that would be so fun to ride on a dirt bike

  • I live under the eastern approach route voor the Buitenveldert runway, In the neighbourhood where that runway got its name from, there is a manmade forest between me and the noise of the planes but if you go westwards into the forest you can hear the rumbling engines of the planes. Even though you hear Some planes flying by at night its still quite quiet. I think that the so called noise belt around schiphol really works Well!

  • I live near an airport and don't notice it at all really if I'm away a week or so and come back home I really notice it then.

  • Could've planted trees too

  • Sooo the solution was to mimic the wavelength of a jet engine with the dirt to create destructive interference to distort and partially cancel out the noise ....

  • This guy is James Bloody Burke reborn! Brilliant!!

  • Thats crazy. these people buy houses next to an airport for cheap. then cry and make other people pay to get rid of the noise?

  • We just insulated this house for heat until you cannot hear landing traffic for DFW 18 R

  • They litterally put MOUNTAINS to stop some sound??? (i'm Dutch and this is a joke)

  • I though it said ant instead of art

  • I assume that these were all calculated somewhere, it would be interesting to see some data about the before and after effects. Seems odd to me that they all appear to be the same height, I would have presumed that they would need to be higher as they reached the housing area?

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="156">2:36</a> - It's "sound damping", not "sound dampening". Damping makes something quieter; dampening makes it wetter.

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="73">1:13</a> I never thought of jet noise as low rumbling bass. To me it is head-splitting high-pitched pain.

  • This is why they made stonehenge, spaceships were too loud

  • I can’t tell if Tom is 55 or 25

  • how expensive would that be

  • Ill never understand why people move next to a 100 year old airport then complain about noise.

  • Can't hear you

  • Ahh yes I remember these things called "airports", that was before the event right?

  • That’s an amazing way to cut out the low end rumble. Wonder if I applied the same logic when Busking I could block out motorbike noise...hmmm

  • Your brain might filter out the noise but I believe it still gets stressed by doing do. Going from low level but still constant noise to absolute silence and you'll feel so much more relaxed.

  • I took off from this runway and I was honestly confused like crazy why the pilot is taking us away from the airport on the ground

  • Strictly speaking we only hear in 2d. We cannot differentiate if a sound is quiet or far away, neither can we hear if something is above or below us, only to the left or right.

  • The Schipol site mentions that some of the sound is reflected upwards, but possibly some noise cancellation might be going on with waves interfering with each other?

  • big soundproofing pads

  • Planes will not face their engine the other way for take off. Planes land and takeoff with headwind. So it depends on the wind.

  • If sound proofing can work in a recording studio on a small scale... same concept, but so large you'll need a drone to actually see the ridges.

  • Planes been real quite since this

  • The intro is funny, because my brothers were fighting in the background.

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="21">0:21</a> oh no tom is gonna fall into the water oh no

  • "How often does the train go by?" "So often you won't even notice it."

  • Now we know what the pyramids were for!

  • How about a stuka?

  • I think some trees would help a bunch too

  • Plot twist: the Pilots just turned on cruise control when they are in the area

  • same thing as walls in recording rooms, real cool when its done with dirt instead of foam.

  • The landscapers must hate cutting that field.
