  1. 1. Numerical study on flow and pollutant dispersion inside street canyons

    Författare :Yang Yunkai; Martinac Ivo; Peng Shia-Hui; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Flow; Pollutant dispersion; CFD; Street canyon; Reliability; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis analyzes the characteristics of flow pattern and vehicle-emitted pollutant dispersion in roughness surface layer. In an urban environment, wind flow and transported-pollutant source interfere strongly with buildings and other roughness elements on the surface ground, which results in complex characteristics of flow pattern and pollutant dispersion in 3D circumstances.

  4. 4. Prediction of Traffic Noise Shielding by City Street Canyons

    Detta är en avhandling från Nuclear Physics (Faculty of Technology)

    Författare :Mikael Ögren; [2004]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Sammanfattning : Reducing the sound level on the exposed building facades due to traffic noise in cities is difficult and expensive. Creating access for the inhabitants to a quiet side can be an alternative method for reducing the annoyance. Therefore it is of interest to predict the level on shielded positions such as courtyards.

  5. 5. Prediction and Optimisation of Traffic Noise. A Study on Noise Barriers and Shielded Areas

    Detta är en avhandling från Nuclear Physics (Faculty of Technology)

    Författare :Pontus Thorsson; [2003]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; city canyon; absorption; city noise; insertion loss; traffic noise; soundscape; silent side; noise barrier; ground impedance;

    Sammanfattning : The main contribution of noise levels in cities is today road traffic. The strongest source for all road vehicles is most often the tyre-road contact. This source position close to the ground is fortunate with respect to secondary noise abatement measures, such as absorbing road surfaces or noise barriers. LÄS MER
