INVESTIGATION OF HIGHWAY DESIGN FOR MINIMIZATION OF NOISE BY APPLICATION OF MODELS

Preliminary experimentation which indicates the feasability of examining noise propagation from various highway geometries by use of models has been discussed. The rational of this modeling technique has been described. Experimentation is currently being pursued in which the noise propagation from various highway configurations is absorption of the landscape on the results obtained from models. In addition, the representation of the speed, volume and density of highway traffic is being investigated for modeling purposes. A number of geometries have been selected for these investigations. One configuration includes a freeway interchange.
