W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. - Consultant Noral D. Stewart, Ph.D., of Raleigh, N.C., has received the ASTM International Award of Merit from Committee E33 on Building and Environmental Acoustics. The Award of Merit, which includes the accompanying title of fellow, is the highest ASTM honor for individual contributions to standards activities.

Committee E33 cited Stewart for his outstanding leadership skills and dedication in developing ASTM acoustical field and community noise standards. A member of ASTM and Committee E33 since 1985, he recently completed a term as E33 vice president and also works on several subcommittees and task groups. During his tenure with the committee, he has served as a liaison to other organizations in the architectural acoustics and noise control community, and has promoted the use of ASTM standards in building specifications. The committee recognized him with the Wallace Waterfall Award in 2005.

A consultant in acoustics and noise control with an emphasis on architectural acoustics and community and workplace noise, Stewart started his business, Stewart Acoustical Consultants, in 1979. He has assisted architects and engineers in the design of award-winning buildings, and has advised local governments and residents on noise control ordinances and the resolution of noise problems. Prior to his consultancy he was a development engineer at Western Electric Co. in Greensboro, N.C., and a research assistant at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, N.C., where he was awarded his doctorate in mechanical engineering in 1981.

Outside ASTM International, Stewart is a fellow of the Acoustical Society of America; a member and past president of the National Council of Acoustical Consultants; and a member of the Institute of Noise Control Engineering of the USA, ASME International, and the Transportation Research Board's Aircraft Noise Subcommittee.
