Final Report - IMAGINE (Improved Methods for the Assessment of the Generic Impact of Noise in the Environment)

Project ID: 503549
Funded under: FP6-POLICIES

Abstract

This is the final report of the IMAGINE project, which aimed to extend the existing HARMONOISE project source databases for road and rail and to use the HARMONOISE methodology to develop prediction methods for aircraft and industrial noise sources. This required the setting up of industry and aircraft source models together with such modifications to the propagation models as was necessary to account for high sources (aircraft), large sources (industry) and diffraction by vertical barriers (industry).

This report gives an overview of the methods, guidelines and databases produced in the IMAGINE project. The report consists of two parts, each focusing on different end users. Part I of this document provides an overview of the project and links with the HARMONOISE project, advantages of the methods and subjects for further developments. Part II describes the technical part of the project; it includes flow diagrams and the content of the deliverables, both for the source methods (road, rail, industry and aircraft) and for the propagation and the determination of the Lden by measurement and calculation.
