Noise classification methods for urban road surfaces: user manual: measurement methods

Abstract [en]

Subproject F of the SILENCE project is concerned with the role of road surfaces in the generation of road traffic noise. The project focuses especially on noise abatement in urban areas, and consequently urban road surfaces and their noise emission properties are the main interest of subproject F. Within the subproject, work package F4 plays the important part of providing tools for other work packages to assess the success of new types of road surfaces or the maintenance of existing pavements. This document is the output of the work in task F4.2 and deals with the measurement methods suitable to assess the noise emission of urban road surfaces.

The aim of this document is to

- Discuss new and existing methods for determining the influence of road surfaces on road traffic noise emission

- Point out the restrictions and special considerations that result from the application in urban surroundings

- Provide a guideline for measuring the noise emission characteristics of urban road surfaces to the partners in SILENCE and for future use.
