Abstract [en]

A boundary integral equation is described for the prediction of acoustic propagation from a monofrequency coherent line source in a cutting with impedance boundary conditions onto surrounding flat impedance ground. The problem is stated as a boundary value problem for the Helmholtz equation and is subsequently reformulated as a system of boundary integral equations via Green's theorem. The numerical solution of the coupled boundary integral equations by a simple boundary element method is then described. Predictions of A-weighted insertion losses for a traffic noise spectrum are made illustrating the effects of depth of the cutting and the profile of the associated noise barrier.
