Noise Reducing Concrete Block Pavements

Paper by VOLLPRACHT STEVEN EICKSCHEN from ISCR 7th 1994 Vienna Austria

In recent years several investigations were carried out in Germany aimed at reducing the tyre-road noise on concrete block pavements. The results show that these pavements can be constructed with a surface producing the same low traffic noise level as the reference asphalt road surface. In the paper, conclusions are drawn from the results and recommendations are given for selecting concrete block pavements for different speed zones.
