Assess Cty Annoyance from Road & Rail Noise

Apply the methods developed for assessing community annoyance due to exposure to noise from aircraft to the assessment of community annoyance from road and rail traffic noise and expand the current research to include these requirements. The desired analysis must parallel in all important technical detail the method developed for aircraft noise that is currently under consideration by ISO Working Group 45 for formalization in a new Draft International Standard on the Description, Measurement and Assessment of Environmental Noise.
