Information on barrier performance significant for design purposes is tabulated and the extraction of such information from existent design schemes (taking into consideration all major variables) is examined. A method is described which consists of one basic set of graphs to give effective heights for a barrier placed midway between the source (S) and the receiver (R), and a set of correction lines to give actual barrier heights for any intermediate location and any relative elevation of S and R. Use of the design charts is described, and practical factors in the design of barriers are set forth.
