Project: Predicting Vehicle Pass-By Noise Using Neural Nets

Reference: CSU 28/4/46

Last update: 01/08/2003 15:52:46


To develop a method of predicting vehicle pass-by noise levels from design information early in the development of a new vehicle.


The research will involve a neural network computing approach to create modelling tools for predicting maximum pass-by noise levels and relative annoyance levels.
