Quantifying the Performance of Low-Noise Rumble Strips

The proposed study will evaluate the feasibility of using sinusoidal as a substitute for traditional milled rumble strips on highway segments with lane departure crash problems. A quantitative and empirical comparison of the in-vehicle noises and vibrations and roadside noises of sinusoidal and traditional rumble strips will give an indication as to whether the sinusoidal pattern can potentially be used as a substitute for the traditional pattern in areas with lane crash problems.
