Sub-Project B

Sub-Project B: Global Modelling
SB B will develop a tool capable of modelling exterior noise of both road and rail vehicles, at global vehicle level and in different operational conditions: mean traffic flow conditions, pass-by acceleration, braking on different types of infrastructure, including singular conditions. The tool will combine a precise estimation of the sound level and sound synthesis, both for road and rail vehicle modelling exterior noise. It will enable simulations of single sources modification and effect on global noise, both in level and hearing.

The following public reports will become available in the course of the project:
