Federal Highway Administration Traffic Noise Model 3.0 User Interface Cooperative Research

Project Information

Project ID:
FHWA-PROJ-13-0130
Project Abstract:

Modernize the Traffic Noise Model (TNM) 2.5 was released by the Federal Highway Administration in 2004. Computing power has increased to the point where certain acoustical assumptions can be fully calculated; as well as certain graphical choices made in 2004 can now be updated and improved for users.

Project Status:
Completed
Project Funding Amount (Contract Award Amount):
$962,334.80

Public Access Plan:
Yes
Grant/Contract ID:
  • DTFH61-13-C-00034
FHWA Program Area:
  • Planning, Environment, and Realty
FHWA AMRP Program:
  • Modeling and Analysis Tools
FHWA Activity:
  • Analysis, Modeling, and Simulation
Project Outputs:

A new version of the regulatory model required by 23 CFR 772. The Traffic Noise Model (TNM) version 3.0 has a better User Interface and improved Acoustical programming compared to its predecessor – TNM 2.5.

Project Outcomes/Impact:

Impacts to project-specific modeling results for noise impacts and abatement evaluations on Type I and Type II projects as defined in 23 CFR 772. Also a better interface to improve usability of the regulatory model – TNM.
