Title Acoustics - Measurement of the influence of road surfaces on traffic noise - Part 1: Statistical pass-by method
Original title Acoustique - Mesurage de l'influence des revêtements de chaussées sur le bruit émis par la circulation - Partie 1: Méthode statistique au passage [in French]
Bibliographic information International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Case postale 56, 1211 Genève 20, Switzerland, 1st ed., 1997. iii, 27p. Illus. 5 ref.
Abstract Part one of the present international standard describes a method of comparing traffic noise on different road surfaces for various compositions of road traffic for the purpose of evaluating different road surface types. Sound levels representing either high or heavy vehicles at selected speeds are assigned to a certain road surface. The statistical pass-by method may be used to classify surfaces according to their influence on traffic noise, and to evaluate the influence of different surfaces on traffic noise. See also CIS 03-889.
