Abstract:

This handbook is intended to be a tool for use by the highway designer to aid in the design of noise abatement barriers. It provides a means of defining the geometric configuration of a barrier to produce a desired noise reduction, and also provides a design evaluation and selection procedure in which specific barriers are detailed, and then evaluated in terms of cost, acoustical characteristics, and non-acoustical characteristics (such as durability, ease of maintenance, safety, aesthetics and community acceptance). This handbook guides the designer in the preparation of a design which he believes will be accepted by the community and perform as desired both acoustically and non-acoustically, for reasonable cost.
