DISCOMFORT DUE TO THE NOISE OF BUSES; NOISE LEVELS ON STREETS USED BY BUSES IN FRANCE

GENE DUE AU BRUIT DES AUTOBUS; NIVEAUX SONORES DANS LES RUES EMPRUNTEES PAR DES AUTOBUS EN CIRCULATION EN FRANCE

IN THIS REPORT, METHODS OF PREDICTING NOISE LEVELS ON STREETS USED BY BUSES AND METHODS OF PREDICTING DISCOMFORT CAUSED BY BUS NOISE AMONGST FRONTAGERS ARE DEVELOPED. DIFFERENT TYPES OF BUS WERE COMPARED IN REAL CONDITIONS REGARDING NOISE LEVEL AND LEVEL OF DISCOMFORT. FINALLY, EVIDENCE WAS OBTAINED THAT THE PRESENCE OF A BUS STOP LEADS TO A GREATER LEVEL OF DISCOMFORT, AND THIS ALSO OCCURS IN CERTAIN CASES FOR RESIDENTS LIVING NEAR A CORRIDOR RESERVED FOR BUSES.
