Better Noise Mapping with Dynamic Search Method

Thu, 2011-06-23 14:47

Dynamic Search estimates the contribution for each receiver and ranks the influence of all sources.  Only the sources important to the final result of a receiver are calculated, the rest are estimated, allowing for more data to be calculated, thus reducing calculation times.

The Dynamic Search method makes it possible to calculate huge noise maps with complex geometry, and to simulate details previously not possible in noise control programs. This method was adapted not only for rail noise calculations, but also for other noise source types.  The Dynamic Search method, unique to SoundPLAN noise and air pollution evaluation software, makes it practical for consultants to map any size project regardless of terrain, with any number of noise types (road, rail, aircraft, industry, leisure…), and unlimited number of sources, in a timely, efficient manner as demonstrated with the noise mapping of the German railway system.  Click here for more information.
