ACOUSTICAL SCALE MODELING OF ROADWAY TRAFFIC NOISE: A LITERATURE REVIEW. VOLUME 1
Existing mathematical prediction methods cannot predict highway traffic noise within urbanized neighborhoods, since they cannot adequately account for multiple sound reflections. This study resulted in a scale modeling method that is sufficiently accurate for use in such neighborhoods. The evidence for validation is described here, along with sufficient detail on the method itself to allow others to utilize it.
