Environmental Noise Barriers examines both the acoustical and landscaping issues affecting the design of barriers. Detailed consideration is given to materials, engineering, legal and environmental issues as well as the health and social impacts of noise barriers. This extensivel...y revised new edition is updated in line with UK and EU legislation and international provision of barriers. The use of new materials, designs and design thinking are discussed. It includes new methods for improving the acoustic performance of barriers and extended sections on road surfacing, tunnels and railways and aircraft/airport acoustic amelioration. The sections on vegetative barriers, the use of photovoltaics and integrated solutions have been expanded. Environmental Noise Barriers is a unique one-stop reference for practitioners, whether acoustical engineers, landscape architects or manufacturers, and for highways departments in local and central authorities.Read more
