Test and Analysis of Noise Reduction Effect for Different Heights and Distances of Sound Barrier
Based on the comparative analysis on the low-noise road surface, noise reduction green belts, noise barriers and other noise reduction methods, the sound barrier is put forward as an important method for reducing the city road traffic noise. The noise reduction effects for different heights and different distances of the sound barrier are tested and analyzed through noise and vibration test and analysis system, the following conclusions can be drawn. At the same heights from the ground, the father the test points away from the noise barrier, the higher the sound pressure level will be; At the same distances from the sound barrier, the nearer the test points from the ground, the smaller the sound pressure level will be; All of the sound pressure level curves have basically the same variation trend and the main noise frequency band is from 160 to 1600Hz; In the high frequency range which is greater than 1600Hz, the sound pressure level decrease significantly, indicating that the sound barrier has better noise reduction effect for high frequency range. The results provide the basis for the design of the sound barriers.
