AbstractThis paper outlines a procedure for providing adequate protection to housing from the noises of road and rail traffic. The method involves the establishment of criteria of acceptable noise level at a proposed site, considering traffic flow parameters, barriers, topographical effects, and ground attenuation; and the design of a building to meet the noise criteria.
