Abstract

The modelling of noise propagation in urban environments is a topic of considerable interest at the present time. Current methods include ray tracing, radiosity and diffusion models. In this paper a new method is presented based upon Markovian matrices. In this initial study a 2 dimensional model is employed to establish the principle of the approach in the context of noise propagation in a simple city street. The approach is then extended consider the effect of a distribution of scatterering surfaces in an urban street channel.
