Paper Title:
A Study on the Effect of Different Median Barrier Shapes in Presence of Single or Parallel Noise Screens
  Abstract

In most mega cities roadside barriers are used to protect receivers from noise pollution during recent years. Median noise barriers, like roadside noise barriers, can be employed to reduce the impact of traffic on roadside communities. In this study, a 2D boundary element method (BEM) is used to predict the insertion loss of different barrier models. It was shown that the performance of a median barrier along with a roadside barrier is affected if another road side barrier will be erected. However, it is possible to apply some new barrier designs to decline the negative effect of the extra roadside barrier. The best shape for inclined median barriers when erected inside parallel barriers was seen to be the tilted designed with 10 degrees slope.
