The rapid technological progress brings new opportunities and challenges in noise modeling. In order to be able to use the potential of sonROAD18, the most important questions regarding the practical handling of the model must be clarified quickly. At the webinar on November 3, 2021, we will show examples of the modeling challenges that need to be overcome and the opportunities that are available. In addition, we explained where differences are to be expected compared to the old StL86+ model.  

The event was aimed at authorities, specialists and interested parties from the fields of environment, structural engineering, civil engineering, architecture and urban planning.

Low-noise road surfaces – Complete advice from a single source

Nowadays, a road surface must not only fulfil safety aspects. It should also be as cheap and durable as possible, be able to withstand the emerging traffic load and cause as little noise as possible in densely built-up Switzerland. Low-noise road surfaces are often a good choice here. However, the enforcement authorities responsible for the roads are repeatedly confronted with the following questions: How noisy is the existing pavement? Which low-noise pavement is optimal on which road section? How effective is the newly installed low-noise pavement? Is there potential for optimisation? Grolimund und Partner provides answers to these questions.

CPX road surface measurements - commitment to research and standardisation pays off

Road noise is significantly influenced by the acoustic properties of road surfaces. In order to record these, G+P introduced the first CPX measurement system in Switzerland in 2008. Almost 15 years of know-how and continuous development of the measurement system, through research and standardisation work, have paid off. Our customers benefit from reliable and robust results with the highest repeatability. For the canton of Fribourg, which is fully committed to “whispering” road surfaces, accurate measurement results are essential for the implementation of its noise protection strategy.
