Abstract: Traffic noise in urban area has different characteristic features as compared to the noise generated by free flow traffic on rural highways. These differences arise from the various traffic flow characteristics such as heterogeneity of traffic flow, speeds which is in contrast to traffic on rural highways where the flow is generally continuous in nature. Various noise prediction models can be broadly categorized into two different types such as Empirical and Analytical. CORTN and FHWA models belong to the empirical category. Analytical models are developed through regression analysis between traffic noise and various causative factors. In this study, various noise prediction models like FHWA, CORTN, and Stop-and-Go models have been used for predicting road traffic noise in Delhi, the Capital city of India. Eight different sites of Delhi were identified for data collection. Besides noise level, classified traffic volume, speed data, road geometry were also collected . Data collected on these sites has been analyzed and noise level is predicted using different models. An analytical model has also been developed using regression technique for predicting urban traffic noise for Indian conditions. The results obtained by different models are compared using t- test to identify the suitable model for predicting urban traffic noise and to prepare a comparative assessment of different noise prediction models.
