Noise mapping is a very powerful calculation tool that produces noise contour plots over an area, at facades, or noise levels at individual locations. Such software provides greater technical support by allowing complex calculation situations to be undertaken, a greater number of noise sources to be incorporated and larger geographical areas to be accommodated. Additionally, the effects of additional sources and payback from revised mitigation can be readily determined and shown in professional visually attractive presentations.
WBM offers “SoundPlan” noise mapping software to calculate noise from transportation, services plant and industrial noise sources. The Federal Aviation Administration’s Integrated Noise Model (INM) is used to calculate noise from civilian and military fixed wing aircraft and helicopters. The output from both programs, which are well respected in the industry, can be combined.
We can bring together the computational skills to use such software, the experience to know when to use such tools and when the results generated are reasonable. We can supply the necessary and timely technical backup through sound field measurements providing essential checks on the models generated. The benefit of this to you is confidence in the knowledge that the assessments undertaken are valid and dependable.
WBM has untilised this powerful tool to assess factory noise; traincare depots; residential developments adjacent to new and existing roads; motorcycle speedway circuit; external plant near residential housing; recycling site; concrete batching plants; solar parks and a large military airfield that combined multiple industrial sources with aircraft noise.
