THE PREDICTION OF TRAFFIC NOISE USING A SCALE MODEL

This paper describes the development of means of using a scale model of a road and its surrounding urban environment to predict leq, l10 and other measures of traffic noise. The model described is that of the Centre Scietifique et Technique du Batiment, Grenoble, France. The problems involved in the development include allowance for relative sound absorption between real life and the model situation, the constraints on the accuracy of the results due to noise source variations on the model and the effects of the finite size of the model.(a) (TRRL)
