ECHEVERRI, Carlos Alberto; MURILLO, Diego Mauricio e VALENCIA, Germán Mauricio. Simulation of road traffic noise as a tool for redesigning public transport routes in the municipality of Medellín. Rev. ing. univ. Medellín [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.18, pp. 19-30. ISSN 1692-3324.
This article presents part of the study results "methodology to redesign public transport complementary routes to integrated transport system in the Aburrá Valley" held and funded by the Universities of Medellin and San Buenaventura. It focuses on the simulation of road traffic noise as a tool of analysis for decision making in the conversion of some radial routes of public bus transportation to transverse routes or migration to other basins in the city of Medellin. Noise maps for streets in the downtown have been made by application of software for prediction of noise environmental for evaluating existing noise levels and for predicted ones in case of the implementation of the study for redesign public transport routes.
