Transportation Noise Control in Residential Buildings

December 8, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

In urban and suburban environments, transportation noise continually impacts residential properties 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This applies to not only major sources such as interstate highways, airports, and railways but to secondary streets in urban environments as well, where buildings crowd closely to busy roadways. Understanding the fundamentals of noise, noise regulations, building shell design, and implementation are key to creating quiet living spaces in close proximity to major and “minor” transportation noise sources.

It is our goal to educate residential building designers in the basics of transportation noise and in the fundamentals of outdoor to indoor noise control. Noise impact upon building occupants disrupts work, sleep, and leisure time which in turn adds stress, fatigue, and aggravation to daily life. Quiet environments promote good physical, mental, and spiritual health.
