Noise Measurement Field Guide

This field guide provides a series of checklists and steps for the proper development, planning, preparation, and execution of a noise measurement effort for many of the measurement methodologies in the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Noise Measurement Handbook. Each chapter is intended to be a standalone set of pages to aid the person(s) conducting noise or vibration measurements. Included for each methodology are sets of steps for pre-trip planning, pre-trip preparations and on-site field data collection and sample data sheets. More information on measurement study planning is in the Noise Measurement Handbook, as are details on post-measurement data analysis and reporting. The handbook also contains detailed appendices on equipment and terminology. The information in this field guide is meant to serve as a baseline set of information that includes all the steps to conduct a successful field effort. This field guide should be viewed as best-practice guidance and not direction as to how the work must be done. Some project sponsors have established and use their own procedures, which typically would be followed in the event of a conflict.
