Surface dressings optimized for low tyre/road noise - paper for Inter-Noise 2010 in Lisbon, Portugal

Different types of surface dressings are often used on urban and rural roads with limited traffic volume as a measure to maintain the pavements. This is generally a less expensive pavement maintenance measure in relation to applying a new dense top layer. But surface dressings are normally considered to result in increased noise emissions from the road traffic. In the EU project SILENCE investigations of traffic noise from streets with surface dressings have been carried out. The objective is to produce a ranking of different kinds of surface dressings in relation to a reference pavement and to develop and test less noisy types of surface dressings.
