ADDITIONAL TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS AND GUIDELINES FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF NOISE BARRIERS ON ROADS. ZTV-LSW 81

ZUSAETLICHE TECHNISCHE VORSCHRIFTEN UND RICHTLINIEN FUER DIE AUSFUEHRUNG VON LAERMSCHUTZWAENDEN AN STRASSEN. ZTV-LSW 81

This document supersedes the "provisional guidelines for road noise barriers (rlsw)" of 1974 and incorporates existing experience and scientific knowledge. It contains comprehensive construction principles and building engineering and acoustic requirements for noise-reflecting and noise-absorbing barriers and noise-absorbing claddings applied to building constructions or part of them. Types of barriers are first defined and procedures for placing contracts outlined. Design requirements are then discussed covering noise, stability, dead weight, wind stress, Anchorage and road safety. The components are identified and construction materials considered. Foundations, installation and maintenance are then examined. A wide range of testing procedures are then described including requirements, conditions, procedure and contents of test certificate. Details on costing are given and the guarantee period stated. This publication was originally published in German as allgemeines rundschreiben strassenbau no 19/1984. Sachgebiet 6: ausstattung der bundesfernstrassen. Sachgebiet 5: bruecken-und ingenieurbau. (TRRL)
