Acoustic Effectiveness of Vinyl Fence Noise Walls

The goal of this research is to evaluate the acoustic benefits of vinyl fencing and determine its potential as an alternative to a traditional noise barrier. This research will design, construct and acoustically test a vinyl fence noise barrier and compare the results with Ohio Department of Transportation's (ODOT's) conventional concrete and fiberglass noise barriers in terms of cost, installation, material characteristics, maintenance, noise, etc.
