Tyre Road Noise in Concrete Pavements

Presentation by David Dash on Tyre Road Noise in Concrete Pavements from Sydney Forum 26 October 2009

David Dash presents on tye road noise for concrete pavements. His presentation covers:

  • Understanding noise:
    • Pressure/power
    • Frequency
    • Filters
    • Measurement and standards
    • Noise spectra
  • Recent results for varying pavement types

Concluding that negative texture, such as that achieved via diamond grinding and longitudinal tyning may be preferable for concrete pavements.
