NOISE EMISSION FROM ROAD VEHICLES 1990-2010. THE DEVELOPMENT EXPECTED BY A GROUP OF NORDIC EXPERTS

The aim of this report is to discuss and to come to an agreement on the expected development in vehicle noise emission. For this purpose a group of experts from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden met during one day in 1993. The group evaluated the future development, taking into account existing as well as anticipated future regulations. After discussions, the group agreed on three scenarios characterizing possible future developments. The main conclusion was that with Scenario 0 no noise reduction is expected at motorway speed. There is a chance with Scenario 2 of obtaining essential improvements, i.e. 3 or 4 dB reduction in vehicle noise emission both at high and low speed. Scenario 2 will require extensive work on new measurement procedures, some more reduction of power unit noise, and an effective optimization of the system tyre/road surface. This will require political decisions made without delay.
