Noise Emission and Abatement
Road traffic is regarded as one of the biggest sources of noise in urban areas and along main traffic routes. The AIT's acoustic specialists combine ultra-precise measurements taken on site with comprehensive simulations in order to model traffic-related noise emissions numerically. The results of measurements and simulations form the basis for the development of low-noise road surfaces and help manufacturers of noise protection elements to develop and infrastructure operators to implement effective noise protection measures along particularly noisy routes.
- Rolling noise and pass-by noise measurements for acoustic characterisation of road surfaces
- Modelling and analysis of tyre-road surface interaction using sound field simulations
- Measurement and acoustic analysis of noise barriers in terms of effectiveness and long-term behaviour (Adrienne method)
- Optimisation of noise barriers in terms of geometry, surface, materials and positioning using the latest simulation techniques
- Forecasting of effectiveness of noise protection measures using sound field and sound propagation simulations
Other acoustic services
