    Abstract

    During the implementation process of the CNOSSOS-EU, many questions have been arisen. There are inconsistencies in the guidance, but the most of the questions are related to the acquisition of the initial values and their validity. We evaluated the sensitivities of the noise propagation part and the road noise sound power levels to the changes of some initial values within their validated ranges. The evaluated parameters were the probability of occurrence of downward-refraction conditions and the coefficients for the road surface and propulsion noise. Measured weather values were calculated using three approaches and compared to each other and to the default values. The results shows that the use of the default weather values increase the immission levels and thus the number of exposed people. The default rolling and propulsion noise factors of the CNOSSOS-EU method are not usable in northern conditions and the national factors should be exploited.
