Theoretical outdoor noise propagation models: Application to practical predictions

Heikki Tuominen, Tapio Lahti

Research output: Book/ReportReport


A brief review is presented on the theoretical calculation approaches for outdoor noise propagation available today. Possibilities for their application to practical engineering calculations are outlined. A calculation procedure developed by the authors, which is a combination and extension of several earlier theoretical models, is described. Calculation examples are compared with the results of some Scandinavian propagation studies.
