The estimation of absolute road traffic noise levels without including the effects of meteorology is thought to be a major source of error in the estimation process commonly used in the United States. In response, the Transportation Research Board-sponsored NCHRP 25-52, Meteorological Effects on Roadway Noise, to collect highway noise data under...

Temporal variations of traffic noise levels originate from two effects: (1) traffic variations and (2) atmospheric variations. Traffic variations include variations of traffic volume and vehicle speed, and cause variations of the emission of sound at the source. Atmospheric variations cause variations of the propagation of sound from the source...

Aircraft noise is consistently rated as more annoying than noise from other sources with similar intensity. In three experiments, it was investigated whether this penalty is due to the source identity of the noise. In the first experiment, four samples were played to participants engaged in a working memory task: road traffic noise, an Airbus...

Noise control starts by understanding the actual noise situation. Especially for situations where the distance between industrial and traffic noise sources and a local community is in the order of one kilometer or more, it may not be clear what sources are the main contributors to annoyance. Then a combination of monitoring and modeling is...

Traffic noise mapping of cities requires large computer calculation times. This originates from the large number of point-to-point sound propagation calculations that must be performed. In this article it is demonstrated that noise mapping calculation times can be reduced considerably by the use of parallel computation on the Graphics Processing...

Annoyance and sleep disturbance by road and rail traffic noise in an urban area are investigated. Noise levels Lden and Lnight are determined with an engineering noise model that is optimized for the local situation, based on local noise measurements. The noise levels are combined with responses of 71 inhabitants to an annoyance survey to derive...

Noise control for an urban district starts by understanding the actual noise situation. A correct understanding is needed to take appropriate and cost efficient measures. For a noise burdened urban district, surrounded by road and rail traffic, the traffic noise as well as the annoyance has been measured. The size of the district is...

Traffic noise at an intersection controlled by traffic lights shows noise level variations due to the alternating green and red lights for the different trafficstreams. Noise peaks caused by automobiles pulling up or passing by at highspeed may be quite annoying for people living near the intersection. Detailedprediction of the variations is...

In urban areas, road traffrc noise is a dominant source of environmental noise and a major cause of noise annoyance and disturbed sleep. It has been hypothesized that respondents highly exposed to noise at multiple sides of their dwelling, may be expected to be worse off than respondents with the same exposure at the most exposed side, but also...

Previous studies indicate that residents may benefit from a "quiet side" to their dwellings. The influence of the level of road traffic noise exposure at the least exposed side on road traffic noise annoyance was studied in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Road traffic noise exposure was assessed at the most and least exposed façade (Lden,most and...

Recent developments in acoustic monitoring systems make it possible to measure complex noise situations, like urban traffic noise, continuously. Monitoring provides more insight in the noise situation, from which more specific and (cost) effective measures can be taken. Monitoring also allows direct evaluation of the effect of mitigation, or to...

A model based monitoring system is applied on a local scale in an urban area to obtain a better understanding of the traffic noise situation. The system consists of a scalable sensor network and an engineering model. A better understanding is needed to take appropriate and cost efficient measures, especially when changes to the local...

Traffic noise and air pollution have been associated with cardiovascular health effects. Until date, only a limited amount of prospective epidemiological studies is available on long-term effects of road traffic noise and combustion related air pollution. This study investigates the relationship between road traffic noise and air pollution and...

Environmental noise annoyance due to transportation noise in the home environment has been widely studied, and exposure-response relationships have been established previously for the expected percentage of annoyed residents with the most exposed façade exposure level as a determinant. However, relatively little is known about the evaluation of...

The noise mapping performed for the Environmental Noise Directive is used to evaluate noise exposure of the population. This requires a significant effort and consistent data collection and application of calculation methods. It is well known that considerable variation in noise mapping results can occur due to uncertainty in input data. For...

One of the methods to determine the influence of the road surfaces characteristics on the emission of noise by road traffic is the so-called Close Proximity (CPX) method, which measures the noise emission of the tyre-road contact in the near field of a sound radiating tyre. These measurements are executed with CPX measurement trailers....

A good understanding of the acoustic environment due to traffic in urban areas is very important and can be obtained by long term model based monitoring within large areas. As a result one has a good basis for assessing the effect of mitigating measures and for communication and policy making. A monitoring approach has been developed, based on...

In de Nederlandse praktijk van het meten van de geluidsreductie van wegdekken met behulp van de CPX-methode [1] is gebleken dat er tussen de resultaten van verschillende uitvoerders van deze methode relatief grote verschillen bestaan die voor opdrachtgevers leiden tot vragen en onduidelijkheden over de akoestische kwaliteit van de gemeten...

The aim of this guidebook is to become a reference tool for noise mitigation through a better use of Noise Reducing Devices (NRD) (e.g.: Noise Barriers or sound Absorptive Claddings). It targets all the stakeholders involved in NRD projects (designers, manufacturers, authorities, construction companies, maintenance companies...) and who are...
