PROPAGATION OF TRAFFIC NOISE IN TYPICAL URBAN SITUATIONS

Field measurements have been carried out to investigate the propagation of traffic noise for ten different road and housing configurations. The shielding produced by a substantial brick wall parallel to a main road, and the effect of an aperture in such a barrier, has been measured and results compared with data for open grassland. Shielding by rows of houses flanking a main road and noise propagation along side-roads branching off main roads has been investigated in detail, and empirical curves are presented for predicting levels of l10 in such situations.(a) /TRRL/
