    *CALCULATION ROAD TRAFFIC NOISE* This script computes the noise level in dB(A) at a given distance from a road. Important data are the number of cars and trucks that use the road, the mean speed and the distance from you to the road. Emission data according to the version of the Dutch calculation method. Noise pollution is a major public health problem in developing countries as well. It is caused mainly by road traffic; the hour Leq can reach even dB(A) along the main roads. More than 30% of Europeans are exposed to Leq exceeding 55 dB(A) at night, which may cause sleep disturbances. Systematic noise measurements in Serbia were Cited by:

An excellent example of noise-compatible land-use planning is the Carrington residential development in Fairfax County, VA.

A required meter (foot) setback normally provides a buffer zone between residences and the Dulles Toll Road to reduce traffic noise, but because the developer offered to use acoustical planning and construction, the.

The Traffic Noise, without the pollution Traffic noise is considered as a nuisance, and possibly one of the most difficult sources of noise to avoid in many places around the world. One way of reducing the annoyances of traffic noise is to mask it using more pleasant sounds - such as our rain and stream noises - or even this traffic noise.
