ENVIRONMENTAL NOISE BARRIERS - A GUIDE TO THEIR ACOUSTIC AND VISUAL DESIGN

The growth in the use of noise barriers across Europe, the USA, Australia and the Far East reflects the growing concern of the general public about noise pollution caused by major infrastructure projects, especially roads and railways. This book, which is extensively illustrated with photographs of types of noise barriers has chapters on: defining the need for barriers; the acoustic performance of barriers; barrier morphology and design; types of barriers and barrier materials; engineering safety, environmental and cost considerations. In Appendix 1, details of manufacturers, installers and suppliers are given (for the UK).
