Who decides? news.bbc.co.uk www.stedmundsbury.gov.uk sprott.physics.wisc.edu/fractals/chaos www.plu.edu/scene/issue/1999/summer/img Noise:  3 Noise Undesirable or unwanted sound Subjective Impacts Annoyance, disturbance Stress Physical and psychological damage Transportation Noise:  4 Transportation Noise Decreases with increasing distance – a corridor problem Generated by: Engine Exhaust Aerodynamic friction Interaction between tire-pavement Control of Transportation Noise:  5 Control of Transportation Noise Federal -- Noise control act of 1972 Recognized noise as a major degrader of urban living Encourage use of noise standards State and local governments Also institute noise control Noise Measurement:  6 Noise Measurement Intensity of a single sound is measured on a relative of logarithmic scale Uses a unit called a bel (B) or subunit – decibel (dB, 1/10 of a bel) At 14 bels, sound is painful to human ear Common Sounds:  7 Common Sounds Noise Propagation:  8 Noise Propagation Noise is generated at source and spreads spherically away from source Intensity diminishes with distance Losses also occur from sound energy being dissipated as sound is transferred by air particles Bending and diffraction occurs as sound waves encounter natural and manufactured solid objects Noise Control Strategies:  9 Noise Control Strategies Minimize noise levels Source controls Vehicle control devices – maintenance, traffic and highway design controls Path controls Sound barriers that reflect and diffuse noise Buffer zones Receiver-side controls insulation Noise abatement measures:  10 Noise abatement measures Traffic management (see next slide) Buffer zones Vegetation Noise insulation Relocating the highway Traffic management measures:  11 Traffic management measures Prohibit trucks Truck routes Prohibit daytime (or night-time) use Traffic signal timing Speed limits Will all these work?

The equivalent sound level is the steady- state, A-weighted sound level which contains the same amount of acoustic energy as the actual time-varying, A-weighted sound level over a specified period of time. If the time period is 1 hour, the descriptor is the hourly equivalent sound level, Leq(h), which is widely used by SHAs as a descriptor of traffic noise. An additional descriptor, which is sometimes used, is the L10. This is simply the A-weighted sound level that is exceeded 10 percent of the time. What are L10 and Leq?:  23 http://www.nonoise.org/library/highway/traffic/traffic.htm What are L10 and Leq? L10 is usually about 3dB greater than Leq Mathematical Model:  24 Mathematical Model Simple model L50 = 68 + 8.5 log V – 20 log D (db) Where: V = traffic volume (veh/hour) D = distance from traffic to observer in feet Also use nomographs, relate noise to speed, volume, distance, etc. State of the Art is FHWA’s Traffic Noise Model (TNM):  25 State of the Art is FHWA’s Traffic Noise Model (TNM) Modeling of five standard vehicle types, including automobiles, medium trucks, heavy trucks, buses, and motorcycles, as well as user-defined vehicles. Modeling of both constant-flow and interrupted-flow traffic using a 1994/1995 field-measured data base. Modeling of the effects of different pavement types, as well as the effects of graded roadways. Sound level computations based on a one-third octave-band data base and algorithms. Graphically-interactive noise barrier design and optimization. Attenuation over/through rows of buildings and dense vegetation. Multiple diffraction analysis. Parallel barrier analysis. Contour analysis, including sound level contours, barrier insertion loss contours, and sound-level difference contours.
