DECREASE OF NOISE CAUSED BY MOTOR VEHICLES

VERMINDERUNG DER DURCH KRAFTFAHRZEUGE HERVORGERUFENEN GERAEUSCHBELAESTIGUNG

The paper surveys the research and development in and the state of the art of traffic noise control in the GDR. The author discusses so-called noise maps, prohibitions on night driving, noise protection on the outer walls of buildings, and full encapsulation of engine space. In summary it is stated that despite intensive efforts, the engine is still the most intensive source of noise from the vehicle. Most of the research work is therefore concentrated on reducing engine noise. In order to find the best solution for each type of vehicle, various noise reduction measures have been tested. These include the transition from air to liquid cooling, encapsulation of the transmission, modification of the construction of the engine and the use of efficient sound dampers. (TRRL)
