Field Evaluation of Reflected Noise from a Single Noise Barrier

The objectives of this research are to (1) determine the spectral noise level characteristics of the overall noise in the presence of a single absorptive or reflective noise barrier for positions on the opposite side of a roadway through the collection of field measurements from diverse sites, and (2) summarize and analyze the implications of the research results for purposes of understanding the actual and perceived effects of reflected noise. Phase 1 of this project focused on reflective barrier surfaces. Phase 2 of this project focused on absorptive barrier surfaces.
