EFFECT OF THE BINDER IN A ROAD SURFACING ON NOISE PROTECTION

DER EINFLUSS DES BINDEMITTELS EINES STRASSENBELAGES AUF DEN LAERMSCHUTZ

The noise affecting the area surrounding a street is made up from different sources: from vehicles (engine, chassis, body, tyres), from the speed, from the unevenness of the carriageway and from the weather. In this article special consideration is given to the type of the carriageway surface (cement or bitumen), the roughness of the surface and two weather conditions - dry and wet. It can be confirmed that for similar roughness, the noise emission is independent of the type of the carriageway surface (concrete - bitumen) and relatively independent of the fact that the surface is wet or dry. Smooth carriageways under dry conditions produce from 2 to 3.3 db(a) less and under wet conditions from 5 to 8 db(a) greater noise emission than rough surfaces. The type of binder and the unevenness of the carriageway surface is, however, independent of the noise emission when the average values are derived by taking into consideration the frequency of both weather conditions - dry or wet. /TRRL/
