SOUND-ABSORPTION TREATMENTS FOR HIGHWAY NOISE BARRIERS

Various aspects of the use of roadside barriers to reduce levels of traffic noise in nearby communities are discussed. These include the need for barriers on both sides of a highway, the resulting degradation of barrier performance, and the need to incorporate sound-absorption facings into barrier designs. A general overview of sound-absorbing materials is given, and some common misconceptions about reducing highway noise are examined. (Author)
