Initial Training Network (ITN) on Urban Sound Planning.
To achieve a good acoustic environment outdoors, which improves
health and wellbeing, a holistic view is needed within urban sound
planning. For the planning processes related to urban acoustic
environments to be successful, specialists are required who have broad
research expertise covering areas such as acoustic prediction methods,
noise control and soundscaping, as well as city and traffic planning.
Within acoustics, there are several traditionally separated expert
areas, which need to be tied together through better communication and
broadened understanding. This concerns:
- state-of-the-art sound prediction tools for shielded and quiet areas
- soundscaping, including aspects of behaviour science and psychology
- large-scale noise and traffic planning
- in-depth inside knowledge on noise control measures such as screening, absorption, ground effect, low-noise road surfaces, etc.
A successful project will also require the knowledge and tools that
only exist on a research level to be transferred to tools that can be
applied in practice.
The project is carried out at the Division of Applied Acoustics in research group Vibroacoustics.
