MOUS_ICO Menu: Noise > Reports

There are several options for printing out calculation results and input data. The following examples show typical printouts:

Options 1 and 2 generate a readable report, while options 3 and 4 generate a semicolon-delimited format that can be imported into a spreadsheet. Using a spreadsheet gives many possibilities as to making various presentations of the calculation results, e.g. making a graph with a profile along the horizontal axis and noise levels along the vertical axis (select All details during the calculation to generate enough data). Such a graph will give a clear view as to which road sections contribute to high noise levels.

Another spreadsheet option is using calculation points with names along the horizontal axis and noise levels along the vertical axis. This gives a good schematic picture of the noise levels for residents in the area, both before and after noise barrier measures.

Report type

All report types are followed by small summary reports. These sum up how many persons are exposed to different noise levels. The numbers are calculated by looking at the highest noise value for each building and the number of persons in the building. In the first report, the numbers are written with one decimal without further rounding. In the second, the rounding follows the directive 2002/49/EC where it is specified that the numbers should be rounded upwards to the nearest 100 persons. So 49→0, while 51→100.

The noise intervals should be interpreted so that “70-74” means the mathematical interval [70-75). This consists of all numbers from and including 70.0 up to, but excluding 75.0.

The report will start on the lowest level of calculation parameters, listing an individual noise source with each connected calculation point. This is repeated for all noise sources on all roads for each calculation point. Sums are accumulated for each noise source, each road, etc. This kind of report generates a lot of data, so be restrictive about how many calculation points to include each time. The following parameters are printed (in order from left to right, the headings are somewhat scrambled in some formats):
