An assessment of the acoustic performance of a road traffic noise barrier with a random edge profile ; a research report submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the award of Master of Engineering Science, University of New South Wales

This study followed a methodology that included construction of an 80m long by 2.4m high barrier that served as the base for an additional conventional top as well as a random profile and T top novel cap, known as a random edge profile barrier. Empirical data collected showed that for the receiver locations investigated, a random edge barrier will out-perform a conventional barrier of the same nominal height for most frequencies associated with broadband tyre/road noise.,
