  1. 1. Designing with Urban Sound : Exploring methods for qualitative sound analysis of the built environment

    Author : Nina Hällgren; Katja Grillner; Björn Hellström; Gunnar Sandin; Konstfack; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Architecture; urban sound design; urban sound planning; soundscape; urban planning; artistic research; architectural research; Architectue;

    Abstract : The licentiate thesis Designing with Urban Sound explores the constitution and qualitative characteristics of urban sonic space from a design-oriented and practice-based perspective. The act of lifting forth and illuminating the interaction between architecture, the creation of sound and a sonic experience aims to examine and develop useful tools and methods for the representation, communication and analysis of the exterior sonic environment in complex architectural spaces.

  2. 2. Urban Sound Planning - An attempt to bridge the gap

    Author : Laura Estévez Mauriz; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; HUMANIORA; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANITIES; prediction methods; road traffic noise; traffic dynamics; Urban sound planning; quiet side; urban systems; citizen participation; urban strategies;

    Abstract : Cities are constantly between transition and adaptation, where current urban development needs a consistent strategic solution capable of understanding and including the relationships between urban form, environment and urban life. Awareness of the quality of the urban environment is leading the vision on the resilience and sustainability of the built environment, highlighting the importance of a multidisciplinary urban framework.

  3. 3. The urban form and the sound environment - Tools and approaches

    Author : Laura Estévez Mauriz; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; road traffic noise; prediction; Urban sound planning; modelling; quiet side; urban systems; traffic dynamics;

    Abstract : Cities are always confronted with transition and adaptation. Awareness on urban environmental quality is leading the vision about the built environment’s resilience and sustainability, highlighting the importance of a multidisciplinary framework for urbanisation processes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Predictive models for accidents on urban links - A focus on vulnerable road users

    Author : Thomas Jonsson; Trafik och väg; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Road transport technology; Transportteknik; Transport technology; Teknik; Technological sciences; Stads- och glesbygdsplanering; Town and country planning; speed; links; urban; safety; vulnerable road users; modelling; prediction; crash; traffic safety; accident; Vägtransportteknik;

    Abstract : Much of earlier work on predictive models for accidents has been focused on rural traffic or urban intersections. This work has aimed at identifying and investigating possible improvements to predictive models for accidents on urban links. A special focus has been on the accidents of vulnerable road users.

  5. 5. Background road traffic noise synthesis

    Author : Georgios Zachos; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; background traffic noise synthesis; auralisation; urban sound planning;

    Abstract : As urban planning evolves along with societal life, new requirements that should be met are rising. One of those, is the inclusion of acoustic quality in urban environments, before, during, or after a planning process. To address this for a yet to be built area, metrics are needed that try to quantify acoustic quality. READ MORE
