Large area noise evaluation
Chung, Edward, Bhaskar, Ashish, & Kuwahara, Masao (2007) Large area noise evaluation. In Morrison, G. & Rauch, S. (Eds.) Highway and Urban Environment, Springer Netherlands, Cyprus, Nicosia, pp. 579-589.
A software tool (DRONE) has been developed to evaluate road traffic noise in a large area with the consideration of network dynamic traffic flow and the buildings. For more precise estimation of noise in urban network where vehicles are mainly in stop and go running conditions, vehicle sound power level (for acceleration/deceleration cruising and ideal vehicle) is incorporated in DRONE. The calculation performance of DRONE is increased by evaluating the noise in two steps of first estimating the unit noise database and then integrating it with traffic simulation. Details of the process from traffic simulation to contour maps are discussed in the paper and the implementation of DRONE on Tsukuba city is presented
