PROSPECTS FOR NOISE REDUCTION OF ROAD VEHICLES FOR 1985 AND 2000, TAKING ACCOUNT OF ITS TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY, ENERGY CONSUMPTION, AND COST. FINAL REPORT

The aim of the study is to assess the technical feasibility of road vehicle noise reduction and the resulting technical and economic consequences. Based on the ISO R 362 procedure, which is being used in European regulations, currently available data are analyzed concerning the total stock of the various vehicle categories and the stock of vehicles fitted with silencers, now being manufactured or for demonstration. The technical solutions for noise reduction, their relation to fuel consumption, reliability, weight and dimensions, driving comfort etc. are examined.
