CEN - EN 1793-5

Road traffic noise reducing devices - Test method for determining the acoustic performance - Part 5: Intrinsic characteristics - In situ values of sound reflection under direct sound field conditions

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 March 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 62
ICS Code (Noise emitted by means of transport): 17.140.30
ICS Code (Road equipment and installations): 93.080.30
scope:

This European Standard describes a test method for measuring a quantity representative of the intrinsic characteristics of sound reflection from road noise reducing devices: the reflection index.

The test method is intended for the following applications:

- determination of the intrinsic characteristics of sound reflection of noise reducing devices to be installed along roads, to be measured either on typical installations alongside roads or on a relevant sample section;

- determination of the in situ intrinsic characteristics of sound reflection of noise reducing devices in actual use;

- comparison of design specifications with actual performance data after the completion of the construction work;

- verification of the long term performance of noise reducing devices (with a repeated application of the method).

The test method is not intended for the following applications:

- determination of the intrinsic characteristics of sound reflection of noise reducing devices to be installed in reverberant conditions, e.g. inside tunnels or deep trenches.

Results are expressed as a function of frequency, in one-third octave bands between 100 Hz and 5 kHz. If it is not possible to get valid measurements results over the whole frequency range indicated, the results should be given in a restricted frequency range and the reasons of the restriction(s) should be clearly reported.
