Environmental urban noise prediciting due to Light Rail Vehicle (VLT) implementation by computational simulation

Abstract: The study aimed to evaluate the environmental noise impact of a Light Rail Vehicle (LRV) implementation in an urban agglomeration roadway of Cuiabá-Várzea Grande/MT, Brazil. Using simulation computer, the results showed that, the noise polution still remain above the criteria level, requiring implementation of unified management strategies to mitigate the urban noise pollution.
