water surface/bodies

LucVanLinden
Great work on this modelling tool!

We need to make a noise map through a part of the city, through which a river runs.

IS the application capable of taking water bodies into account?
Is is modeled?
What are the parameters?
Is it configurable (comparable with the LANDCOVER example / groundtypes table?

If not, has anyone used a workaround?

Any experience or feedback welcome.

thanks

Luc

Hi,

Thanks for your interest in NoiseModelling

IS the application capable of taking water bodies into account?

Ground effect is modelled in NoiseModelling. The default value of NoiseModelling is closed to water bodies absorption coefficient (perfectly reflective). You should however be concerned by absorbing grounds:

Please follow this tutorial:
