Noise in School Power Laboratories: Its Effects and Control

Noise in School Power Laboratories: Its Effects and Control

Date: August 1976
Creator: Schwab, David L.
Description: This study was made to find the effects of noise on the human body, to measure sound levels that exist in school power laboratories, and to design and evaluate the effectiveness of two noise control devices. An accurately calibrated testing device was used to measure sound levels in an attempt to determine if excessive noise exists in school power laboratories and to find the extent to which such noise can be reduced by shielding or enclosing the engine test area. It was found that noise has undesirable physical and psychological effects on the human organism. Sixty-two and one-half per cent of the engines tested registered sound levels above 90 dBA; even so, simple, inexpensive noise control devices do control the noise levels generated in the school power laboratories.

The Role of Industrial Arts in Career Education

The Role of Industrial Arts in Career Education

Date: December 1977
Creator: Pinnell, Charles C.
Description: This study seeks to provide a descriptive analysis of the role of industrial arts in career education. The criteria used as a basis for comparison of industrial arts and career education are (1) clarification of terminology, (2) historical trends in the development of both programs, (3) basic program philosophies, (4) curriculum content, (5) objectives and goals sought by each curriculum, and (6) legislation affecting industrial arts and career education. Career education is more extensive than industrial arts. Industrial arts cannot assume full responsibility for a comprehensive program of career education; however, industrial arts can be involved in activities which will help the student select a meaningful occupation related to industry.
