SIMULATION AND ANALYSIS OF CAR NOISE POLLUTION IN THE TERRITORY OF KAUNAS UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED SCIENCES




Abstract:
As the economy is growing, more and more families can afford to buy a car. The increasing number of cars means the increasing noise levels. After lots of scientific research, it was found that motor noise is harmful to human health. According to the existing laws, noise levels in residential areas during the day cannot exceed 65 dB(A). Kaunas University Of Applied Science resides near one of the busiest streets in the city: Pramonė avenue. There was an experiment carried out in April 2016 where the number of passing vehicles was counted. With ArcGIS software engine MapNoise using statistical functions and IDW, Spline and Kriging interpolation methods, transport noise analysis was carried out. The results showed that the average noise level varies between 55-65 dB(A). The noise is significantly reduced by the trees and bushes growing near the School; without them the noise level would increase by about 5 dB(A).
