Project ID: 516288
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final report of the SILENCE project, which developed an integrated system of methodologies and technologies for an efficient reduction of urban traffic noise. Within SILENCE the considerations of city authorities, individual road traffic, and mass rail transport and road / rail construction were combined. The subjects of research and investigations were: urban noise scenarios, noise perception and annoyance, individual road and rail vehicle noise improvement, noise reduction from tyre / road interaction, low noise road surfaces and construction, traffic management and city planning.

The report is an executive summary of the project objectives, its main methodology and general findings.
