Incorporation of the quiet side in noise maps
Paper i proceeding, 2014
Nowadays noise maps are focused on the noise level at the most exposed façade, leading to underestimations on the shielded areas. Previous research showed that quiet areas have positive effects for the inhabitants' quality of life.
To solve this problem, an engineering method was developed within the QSIDE project. This method aims to improve noise maps in terms of multiple reflections in an efficient way. Two different terms, attenuation due to the barrier and the canyon will be incorporated. In this paper, the suggested model from QSIDE has been further developed for its inclusion in noise map calculations.
