PREDICTION OF TRAFFIC SOURCED NOISE LEVE L FOR MUGHAL ROAD, JAMMU AND KASHMIR INDIAMudasir Ali G.A. Bhat and A.R. Yousuf
Quantifying the noise level for purpose of determining whether they exceed the local legally accepted or adopted limits is a complex but crucial task. The mathematical modeling was used to predict the traffic sourced noise pressure levels for the Mughal Road (Jammu & Kashmir), and it is inferred that the forthcoming or expected traffic would generate a noise level of 83.48 dB in the vicinity of the highway, and the distance were the sound pressure level will drop at 50 dB is expected to he 2200 meters from the edge of the highway, as long as the impact of other factors such as attitudinal gradient, etc. are considered as non significant. The sound pressure drops at a sudden significant within the first 50 meters of the vicinity of the road and then the drop in pressure level with the progressive distance continues very slowly and assumes a nearly uniform rate of decline from 1200 m onwards.
