Why does Industrial Wind Turbine noise / vibration impact the health of some residents, but not others? Some say it’s genetic OWR. Could it depend on how waves from multiple sources cancel or add together?
- If a crest of a wave meets a crest of another wave of the same frequency at the same point, then the magnitude of the displacement is the sum of the individual magnitudes – this is constructive interference.
- If a crest of one wave meets a trough of another wave then the magnitude of the displacements is equal to the difference in the individual magnitudes – this is known as destructive interference.
