Abstract

Based on an investigation of rooftop equipment noise, the methodology described in this paper was developed to isolate the noise contribution from a subset of noise sources from a set of noise sources (including urban hum) that contribute to the sound pressure level at a given community receptor location.  Results comparing the projected noise impact from the rooftop equipment to community measurements based on this method are presented.
